My wife and I rode from Piedmont to the AL/GA state line. The asphalt pavement was pretty good and the areas where tree roots had pushed up the pavement have been ground down. The trail is a steady climb starting just east of Piedmont up to the state line. The bridge transitions are fairly smooth. Starting at 8.7 miles (state line is 0.0) to 4.8 miles, we encountered many "road apples" (aka horse poop) on the pavement. Fortunately, the trail was not busy and we were able to dodge them. Apart from that, the trail is a nice ride.
My son and I did this trail recently on a beautiful Saturday, plus the extension of Red Mountain Park, a workout. Round trip a little over 6+ miles and not being an experienced biker, just a rider from time to time, this really pushed me. I did walk some but mostly rode.
The extension of Red Mountain Park side is tougher than just the High Ore Trail alone, but well worth the ride.
There is not parking for the High Ore Trail that we could find except for at the Red Mountain Park Side and ride it down and through the Trail.
We'll be back and hopefully I can ride the whole trail this time without walking any. :-)
A decent trail
I rode this trail when it about 18 years ago and rode it last November 2020. For the most part, it is maintained. It would be nice if those maintaining the trail would give more attention to the roots. Don’t let the root comment stop you from riding this trail. CL was my first RT biking experience over 18 years ago. I look forward to riding it again soon, perhaps this year, 2021. It is a fully paved asphalt trail. There is plans to the extent it two more miles we were told in 2020 by another biker.
Not the best, but it’s something.
Good length shaded and flat. Perfect. Wish Birmingham could make more of these trails.
It’s an urban trail that is part of a bigger trail that is being developed in the Birmingham metro area. Ultimately it will link the west side of town to the east. I’ve ridden from RR Park all the way to Sloss Furnace. It’s easy and enjoyable. And filled with the history of Birmingham.
I love riding my bike around the park and in downtown Birmingham on the weekend. The park is green and right next to the active railroad. It’s an easy short ride but there are lots of folks enjoying the park.
Railroad park is an absolute favorite of mine for ease of trails and seeing city around the oasis of park. It winds around in several ways so not sure who came up with .4 miles. It’s not accurate.
The trail is well maintained, relatively flat, and very very scenic once you get out of town. We'd definitely come again.
Great walking trail. There was beautiful fall leaves all around. Great activities along the way for children to do.
Nice ride but some of the pavement was extra bumpy. Great fall views.
Had a wonderful wonderful time on this trail! Great trail for first time long distance bikers like myself. My husband and I will be back to do the Silver Comet Trail all the way through the Chief Ladiga Trail.
