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!!
This is such a hidden gem! Just 15 mins from our new home in Columbus, the trail is clean, quiet and well kept. We rode an out and back from Psalmond Road, about 10 miles total. Had a decent amount of shade and the road was flat, for the most part. I can’t wait to come back and do the entire trail!
This trail is currently only about 3 miles (Aug 2020). It starts out in the town of Pine mountain, and ends up near Callaway Gardens. Pine Mountain has a few little shops, and some places to eat. The first mile or so is through town and is out in the open. The second and third mile are through a nice ‘tree tunnel’. We rode it in the afternoon and it was hot, but the tree covered section was much more comfortable. The asphalt ends but there is a dirt trail that continues for another mile or so. We did just the asphalt section and started and finished in Pine Mountain. Made a quick sixish mile out and back. Looking forward to the completion. As I understand it there plans to continue this for a 29 mile straight line rail to trail.
we got on at the bridge and rode south. trail was newly paved a had a variety of scenery. small town living, forests, abandoned factories, a crazy mix. enjoyed the day. never went to northern section of the trail
Smooth ride and uncrowded. No traffic. At one point it seems to end but you have to cross the road to catch the rest of the trail
This trail is nearly level compared to other trails that are reviewed. The Northern end at The Water Park is very well maintained and a great place for kids, birthday parties, and community functions. The Southern End is to be linked soon but at present that is a promise.
The Southern End extends from the Spring Street Bridge north a bit but certainly goes South from there to the Ocmulgee National Park. This lower part is new to me and truly a wonderful ride, hike, run or walk. It parallels the River and the Interstate 16 with many bridges over creeks and marshes. It is highly recommended.
From the Boat Ramp at the Spring Street Bride to the Great Temple Mound is about 3 miles. Many prefer to park at the Great Temple Mound and walk North as security is a bit better. But, don't get locked-in!
Great ride, great day. I’ll be back ¿¿¿
