As a long time resident, I have learned the best time to use the path is BEFORE school lets out and after a typical work rush hour. (Before 4:00 PM and after 6:00 PM weekdays) Reason? This is a golf cart community where many teens and adults use the path to commute. And unfortunately, they use it like the German Autobahn. Also, wear something bright, because the woods surrounding the path system are thick and there are some blind corners. Otherwise, HAVE FUN!
We love the path system for golf carting, walking, biking. The whole city is connected by these wonderful paths.
I guess I expected much more... The trail was a little confusing to follow and we wound up on a main road for half a mile. We found the correct place to cross on the way back and we’re able to avoid riding on the road other than crossing streets. There is one section going through a wooded area that was very nice.
We enjoyed our bike ride with our young daughter just learning to ride. Although the holes in the bridges are pretty gnarly for training wheels and half of the path is closed.
The MOW Trail is a great trail for the beginner cyclists with easy access linking Downtown Pine Mountain shops & restaurants to the beauty of FDR State Park & Callaway Gardens.
I grew up here in Ptc and know how bad the young drivers are. I was one of them. You get way more experience than most kids do. At night/ evening I walk my dog with my daughter. You must make yourself visible!! I put a bright... light on my dog and we both carry flash lights. Insanely bright flash lights. Just be aware of what’s around you. Especially the kid texting and driving coming up behind you.
I skate this trail regularly and I also run it. It’s great for both. It’s nearly flat the entire route which is awesome for a nice fitness skate session. There’s also steady foot traffic and bikers, even in the more remote areas, so one won’t feel too isolated. That matters to me as a woman. I park at Flat Rock Park and from there, you have immediate access. As for skating, the pavement is excellent. Little to no roots or cracks and generous width. Just be mindful of the change in texture on bridges, road crossing entrances and the leaf litter and walnuts in the fall. Lol
I had high hopes for this one, because I thought we he mounds, music history and cemeteries would be interesting. It looks like the city made an effort at one time to invest in their greenways and parks, but the portion we rode was unkempt and unclear. Lots of construction and little revitalization. Maybe down the road they will get it all together and it will be a nice ride.
The bridges on the trail are wooden and have holes in them that are covered by plywood. I fell off my bike when my tire hit a piece of the plywood and was banged up pretty bad.
Bought new bikes from Ride on Bikes in Columbus and then rode the trail the following morning. (8/22/20) It was truly the most fun my wife has had on a trail to date. The trail was really nice and filled with people biking, running, and walking. Hope to go back again when the infantry museum opens back up
Parked at an old farmers market at the very north end of the trail. Rode both spurs on the south end to their ends and back 11 miles TOTAL, so 5.5 miles of trail not 7. Fresh, smooth asphalt about 40/60 shaded/sun. Nice ride, nothing special.
So excited that this quaint little trail in valley, Alabama has been completely repaved. While you have to cross a large road for part of it(albeit only a mile and a half) it’s been greatly improved. I would suggest parking at the Langdale Mill site instead of the trail head off of 35th st. Much more visible and more traffic. So come ride this sweet little trail!!
