Chief Ladiga Trail

Nice, Mostly Flat Ride

July, 2024 by anthony.johns.6

Went about 7 miles into Alabama from the Georgia line on our ride. It was a good, fairly smooth and flat ride. Compared to the Georgia side of the ride, however, there was a bit less shade and the path was significantly more narrow. It was hardly problematic in general, but it did have a larger impact when people were riding in pairs or passing relative to the wider Silver Comet portion.

BMRR North Trail

nice, interesting, but short

July, 2024 by bbraden

BMMR North is a pleasant trail with adequate shade, some stunning vistas of Jones Valley & beyond (imgine there would be more to see in dormant foliage). Intersting relics of mining operations. Trail appears to be true rail trail for about 1.25 miles, though trail length is list at 2.0. There is no asphalt beyond parking lot; embedded rail ties still visible in most areas. Once reaching X with Redding Trail at some an impressive structure, the trail narrows and trends toward rougher surfaced until sweeping uphill on a grassy swale to connect with BMMR South.
Connectors between the trails are more difficult than typical railtrail; Wenonah Connector is great, until surface goes rustic to jump the ridge. Both better as out & back, from Venice Rd. Better yet, park off Bessemer Super Highway in Midfield & ride the High Ore Trail; carefully cross a marked crossing at moderately busy 2 lane, and do the BMMR North & Wenonah, then back to Midfield for about a 11 mile O/B.
parked at Frankfurt Circle, road part of BMRR South, connected to BMMR North , rode to Venice Ave, reversed, took Wenonah Connector back to BMMR South for return to Frankfurt. Would not recommend the connectors i used on any bike.

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

Lacks Signs - But Nice Otherwise - Here's where to Park

July, 2024 by dscottgriffin

Actually a nice trail in a has been mill town.

The trails do have a couple of switch backs at the south end, but these are easily identifiable. As others mentioned, the four lane crossing is the most confusing area near the old Langdale Mill. Just look well across Highway 29 to see where the trail picks up again.

There are actually 6 parking areas along the trail.

Shawmut (North End)
3506 22nd Avenue
Valley, AL 36854

North Central (Old Langdale Mill)
3506 19th Avenue
Valley, AL 36854

Old Train Station
103 River Rd
Valley, AL 36854

South Central (Middle of a neighborhood)
3136 Columbus Rd
Valley, AL 36854

South End (My Favorite)
Behind First Christian Church of Riverview (on Myhand St.)
1465 California Rd
Valley, AL 36854

Most Southern End - Old Riverview School
7755 School St
Valley, AL 36854

The trail is nicely paved and lightly used. Unfortunately, the historical signs have fallen into disrepair. The trail could use paint on the ground if nothing else to give directions where confusion may exist.

Note - watch out for the missing barrier plates on the ground at road crossings that may puncture your tire if you are not careful.

Nice local ride overall.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

well maintained trail

June, 2024 by bbraden

nothing extraordinarily scenic, but mostly forested trail. Outside of a few housing developments, the overall landscape likely hasn't changed much since the last trains ran this route, especially on the north end (terminus at Newfound Creek ravine. I found the trail a well-maintained path, although it is crushed stone, and may not be suitable for all bikes or riders. There was evidence of recent treefalls being cleared, and no noticeable trash on trail (benches & trash receptacles are scattered at random intervals). Trail is mostly shaded, although there are enough clea spots to feel the sun.
Traffic was considerably thin once clear of Black Creek Park, with only 2 joggers between I65 and Shady Grove Road; one lone cyclist who trailheaded on Powder Mill Road; on the way back a few more cyclists between the Shady Grove Road & Black Creek Park.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Gorgeous and Shady Trail

June, 2024 by amber.leclaire412

We ride our etrikes here a couple of days a month. It’s so beautiful and the shaded trails make every the hottest days (today was in the 90’s) bearable. Don’t miss this wonderful hidden gem just north of Birmingham.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Alabama the Beautiful

June, 2024 by laurieccarter

This was our first long/all day ride. The trail really was beautiful, well maintained and paved the whole way. We entered at mile 1 and rode to the GA/AL line. The trail beyond Piedmont, which is the last populated area you will pass, is fairly remote, and at a very, very slight incline. The return is much easier! There are a couple picnic tables at the state line but no bathrooms. We saw deer and turkey crossing the trail.

Richard Martin Trail

The north end has a historic b&b. Elkmont in 1/2 way with nice places and a nice side ride through pre civil war houses. Packed gravel. Could use some smoothing but we did 21 mile out and back on ebikes with no problem. All shady

Flint River Greenway

Great Little Trail

March, 2024 by garybrogers

Camping at Cathedral Caverns with our Grands, loaded up our bikes and all went for ride on this trail, this is a very nice trail, it may only be 1.8 miles but it’s very scenic, two nice bridges crossing the Flint River.

Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail

Enjoyable Bike Trails for all abilities

March, 2024 by tedijw

We spent 4 days biking all the trails in the Gulf State Park - returning to many trails multiple times. The trails are in excellent condition, there are several areas to stop, relax and view the natural areas you’re biking through. The boardwalks are impressive and well maintained. This is a top-notch biking area and if we’re ever in the area again, we will definitely return to these amazing bike trails!

Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail

Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail

February, 2024 by thejake91739

I can't improve upon the above Trail Description or the previous Trail Reviews. In simplest terms, the trails of Alabama's Gulf State Park are absolutely awesome! My wife and I traveled from California in March of 2022 to experience the trails and we had the time of our lives!

Be sure to visit the Gulf State Park website for a map or have the Rails-To-Trails TraiLink app handy since there are twenty-seven trails and/or connectors within the park. We wanted to ride as much of the expansive system of trails as possible, and it was like putting a challenging puzzle together to organize our routes.

Every trail has something that makes it interesting or fun. Our favorite trail was Gulf Oak Ridge for its beautiful views from the overlook platform, and for riding through the forest of trees which envelope the trail.

Kudos to Alabama State Parks for this park and its system of trails. I wish I could ride these popular trails every day like michaelraydunaway!
