Just enough inline and decline to give a good workout. Wonderful trail for family riding.
Great for beginners and no big hills throughout the whole trail. Great shaded areas, great stopping points with benches, awesome width for riding side-by-side or in a group, gravel is packed tightly which makes the ride easier, and easily seen mile marker displays! Highly recommend this trail!!
After a long recovery from an accident, I found my legs would work to peddle, even though walking was difficult. 3 mos later, I’m biking about 6 miles of steep hills at the Trussville Sports Complex area and neighborhoods on a Trek Verve+2 E-bike. The Creek Trail was my first dirt to try. It is an easy trail, shaded throughout, well maintained surface, no elevation changes, no curves. Parking at Black Creek Park is safe. Creek Park is ample and
Wonderful trail for biking. Never too crowded, plenty of parking at the medical center and easy road crossings. Some great uphill challenges followed by relaxing declines. Will come back as a regular from today forward.
Easy beautiful walks with a lot of history about Birmingham!! We walked a total of 6 miles through this green leafy park, saw lots of beautiful flowers, some water and beautiful rock cliffs along the way! Nice benches to sit down when you get tired as well!!
A good ride for the family. Relatively flat with some exception at one end. 299ft total evaluation change. Good shade for most. Walkers common but wide enough for all to enjoy.
Great trail to tide when there is minimal foot traffic. Most runners and walkers know and understand trail educate however, many who walk this trail do not. Dogs on long leashes held by clueless walkers are a danger as well as large groups who choose to stop in the middle of the trail and hold long conversations completely oblivious to the traffic. Many great rides with no frustration have been enjoyed as well as the complete opposite.
Great walk and ride. Great for bham as it reflects part of the early history of the city. Blast on the mountain bike.
Easy bike trail. Red MT. Park is full of history & the ruins of mining operations.
We walked this trail for the first time this morning. There were only a few shady spots, so definitely wear sunscreen. Very rural feeling. We even saw roosters in one yard along the trail. (Passes behind a couple of homes with Rebel flags, just as a note.) I recommend parking at the golf course end. There’s a convenience store there, as well. The school felt remote. Overall, this trail is easy and pretty well maintained. Lots of birds, butterflies, and even saw a non-venomous snake.
I live this trail. Recently, a two mile extension opened. I haven't been able to rid it yet but thought everyone would appreciate an update. Here is a link to the news article about the opening and plans for future extensions and connections with other trails in Jefferson County: https://bhamnow.com/2019/06/13/get-your-walking-shoes-ready-five-mile-creek-adds-two-miles-of-trail-in-gardendale-with-plans-to-become-the-longest-trail-in-central-al
Good 1mile start to catch Horse Creek trail.
