Good 1mile start to catch Horse Creek trail.
Sumiton plus Horse Creek trail 4.2 miles. Nice ride, easy down and back on a beautiful day. Great warm up preparing for a longer trip. Scenery is very nice in March! Drove from Birmingham just to explore.
This was a fun little trail to ride our bikes on. We just wanted a casual ride and that’s what we got! It is paved, flat, and shaded in some areas. There are shaded benches along the path which was nice. There are a few locations where the trail does cross over a back country road, so just be aware when you come to those. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my ride and will be back as soon as I can!
Shared asphalt greenway for bikers, walkers, runners. Follows a beautiful creek. Screened from road traffic but not remote. Used by All ages. Popular morning, day & early evening. Although shared, most bikers know to shout "on your right!" as they overtake walkers. Plenty of parking at east end of trail. Pro: Wide, Shaded, Mowed & caretaken, Easy. : No potties unless Homewood field potties are open, a few car breakins recently so stash your goodies well, dog walkers sometimes don't clean up w/doggie bags.
The trail is completely asphalt. It now runs from TS Boyd Elementary School all the way to Bevill State Community College. It is an excellent rail Trail--I ride it on a daily basis. Very Very nice!
The trail is really beautiful. There were lots of people walking and cycling. There are also areas where you can sit and even charge your phone. I enjoyed my walk and plan to go further next time to see more of the trail.
This is a cute little trail that runs along 1st Ave N. near Sloss Furnace. It's paved and very stroller/bike/skates/walking friendly. It leads right up to the Rotary Trail and right past that is Railroad Park. I like to start at the Jones Valley trailhead and walk all the way to Railroad Park for a few laps and then back. It's aroun 3 miles of you do that.
nice biking trail, watch out in the 2nd residential area there are some dogs that get close to you but never had one to come after me
We took a ride from Bham up Old Hwy 78 W to reach this trail. One end of the trail is accessible from Old Hwy 78W behind a Jet-Pep next to Horse Creek Golf. The other end is down Sharon Blvd towards Dora in the TS Boyd Elementary School Parking lot. The trail is wonderfully maintained. There are kiosks along the route for sitting with bike racks. We saw deer along the route grazing. The trail begs to be extended. Families walking the trail were friendly! On our return back to Bham we did our own grazing at Lee's Family Restaurant. Wonderful food!
Pleasant ride thru the rolling hills of the countryside. Easy access to Dora from new Interstate 22. Poor signage to trailhead, had to ask locals for directions. Short ride that ends too soon, has the potential to be extended.
I ride here usually daily. It's quite and rather secluded. A few pesky dogs may try to bark and simulate biting at you but they not of any danger. The walkers and joggers mostly stay in the their appropriate lane but some of them want to go the wrong direction or walk and jog on the line of the trail and other groups take the complete trail and pay little attention to a bicyclist. I usually holler at them and tell them on their left. The ones that ignore I scream they need to stay in their lane. Walkers and joggers have just as much responsibility as bicyclists to be aware of their surroundings and be on the look out to get out of the way of bicyclists in the passing lane. It's and age old problem that will never be resolved. You just can't fix stupid. BUT I love the trail. It's great.
