Chief Ladiga Trail

Very nice trail

November, 2021 by biguglymaniac

The Chief Ladiga trail, to me, is a great extension of the Comet (or the Comet is an extension of the Ladiga?) in my opinion, the trail is a very fun trail, but you need to understand it to ensure it is fun for you. Coming from the Georgia border, the trail is very picturesque but there are some rural sections that are a little bumpy for the high pressure 700c crowd, although the 2" tire MTB crowd wouldn't notice anything. In my opinion, Piedmont to the border trailhead is fantastic, and Piedmont to Jacksonville State University is equally awesome. The ride from Jacksonville State University to Anniston is pretty pointless unless you are riding it just so you can say you did the whole thing. The Anniston terminus is very underwhelming, kind of just ending in the middle of nowhere near a small park area.

At the time of this review, Ebikes are not legal on the Chief Ladiga trail, regardless of class. In reality, they are fine IMO since there is zero enforcement and from what I understand, zero plans to enforce. Currently there is no legal distinction between a class 1 Ebike and a full dress Harley. As far as I know, Alabama is simply behind in recognizing Ebikes. We rode half the trail on Ebikes and half on acoustics and even used the Police Station parking in Piedmont to load/unload our Ebikes and had no issues. Ebikes are fun and this trail makes them more fun!

Lastly, there is a time change at the border of the Comet and the Ladiga. The comet is in Eastern time and Ladiga is in Central time. Great place to do some time travelling, and if you want to go for a record, you can start just barely on the Comet then ride to Piedmont to collect your new record time (at least by the clocks)!

Chief Ladiga Trail

Nice trail, but watch out for "road apples"

September, 2021 by stvatandem

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.

High Ore Line Trail

Great Trail!!

September, 2021 by a.rae1980

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. :-)

Chief Ladiga Trail

A decent trail

July, 2021 by dmsgls101020

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.

High Ore Line Trail

Too short and boring

July, 2021 by y5ssjjqxrj

Not the best, but it’s something.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Best in Birmingham

July, 2021 by y5ssjjqxrj

Good length shaded and flat. Perfect. Wish Birmingham could make more of these trails.

Rotary Trail

So Nice

June, 2021 by fletchercham61

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.

Railroad Park Rail Trail

Great Park

June, 2021 by fletchercham61

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 Rail Trail

Needs better description

April, 2021 by cjwood

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.

Chief Ladiga Trail

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.
