Civitan Park Trail

Concrete path for walking and bike riding that is 5 or 6 feet wide. We really enjoyed it. Met some friendly people and animals. The fallen soldier memorial was impressive.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Local treasure

July, 2023 by swgross

A nice crushed rock trail with lots of shade. It is very pretty but parts of the trail between Fultondale and Gardendale are washed out exposing large gravels that are difficult to ride without a mountain bike. Overall I am excited to see the ongoing work to expand this trail and hope that it continues to travel farther north.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Smooth easy ride east to west

June, 2023 by twogirlswithcurls

This trail is a hidden gem. The slope is minimal. Other riders, runners, and cars at the FEW road crossings are very courteous. We cannot wait for the full trail to be completed.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Wonderful, quiet, shady trail, with additional two miles to enjoy

June, 2023 by brown1115lak

I rode this scenic trail from east to west and back on June 1, 2023. Nice and shady at this time of year, the trail is gravel, well groomed, graded, and quiet. The traffic noise as it passes beneath US 31 and Interstate 65 is minimal and quickly fades as one proceeds down the trail. At the western end at Powder Mill Road, I met a kind gentleman who informed me that an additional two mile extension has been completed and will officially open Friday, June 2, 2023, bringing the total to about 7.5 miles. Look for the extension near the gate of the Cornerstone Ranch, which is private property. Please respect all landowners and their property.

The greater Birmingham community has a priceless treasure in this trail. To those responsible for its acquisition, construction, and maintenance, thank you very much!

Five Mile Creek Greenway

scenic trail

April, 2023 by hughel

We started the trail yesterday from the Fulton dale trailhead and parking lot. It was very hard to find because there’s no signage on the highway. It’s in a city little league baseball park. The trail is crushed limestone which requires fat tires. Very scenic and shaded old growth hardwoods. We really enjoyed it and plan to do it again.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

great trail!

March, 2023 by wattsupdavid

This is a great trail! It is actually about 6 miles to end and 6 miles back. It is very wooded with nice views of the creek. There were just the right amount of people on the trail, you had a lot of alone time but also felt safe in that other bikers, runners or walkers were not too far away. We parked at the Fultondale end. Great parking and again a safe place to leave the car.

Nice Trail

September, 2022 by bagolightly

My husband and I parked at the park off of Yarbrough Road. The trail was easy to access. The trail was crushed gravel and well maintained. We enjoyed the shade and those few short sunny sections. We passed under Hwy 31 and I65. Several places to stop along the way. The end of the trail is not marked thus initially thought it was another road to cross. Other roads we crossed were well marked and traffic was not bad. We have Lectric brand ebikes but rarely used the pedal assist. When we did turn on the assist, we only needed #1. We are both 'senior' citizens. We will definitely ride this one again.

Buck Creek Greenway

not asphalt

All gravel and dirt. But nice view.

Tuscaloosa Riverwalk

Beautiful with interesting stops

June, 2022 by john70jan

The first portion of this trail is closed down for construction. Once you get past the sports complex, however, the rest of the trail is beautiful, diverse, with places to stop and eat at a restaurant along the Black Warrior River, enjoy a picnic, or just rest and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Spectacular ride today!

Hillsboro Trail

Too Bumpy

May, 2022 by john70jan

Nice trail, espevially for walking. Tree roots are heaving the pavement all along the trail making it very unpleasant for cycling.
