Gateway Greenway

I found this to be an easy quick 2 mile walk. If you are just starting like me to work on getting healthy this is perfect. The history that you are walking around makes it interesting too.

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. :-)

gator trail

September, 2021 by v8ihaynh23

About half this pleasant short trail is in shade and half in sun. Watch for interesting wildlife, including herons, owls, turtles, snakes, beavers (if they haven’t been killed off ¿), and even alligators. Watched a large (5-6ft) one sunbathing back in May and a small (12-18in) one this week (Sept4). Nice trail. Stay out of the ponds. Looking forward to linking this trail to new ones in near future.

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

Confusion

September, 2021 by vpdn5yq96s

This was hard to find and harder to find the start. No maps of the trail were posted where I parked (somewhere near 22nd). I was a bit sketched on leaving my car unattended as some rando in a pedo van was sitting there (left when I got out). Anyways, I made it 1.3 and had no clue where to go but back. Judging by the money spent on the city hall, I’m sure they could use some to pick the trash up along the trail. I wouldn’t recommend this trail without figuring the whole trail out.

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

A series of trails¿

September, 2021 by vpdn5yq96s

Took a while to figure this trail(s?). It seems that it’s broken in sections with no parking area really identified. The one I did find was a bit shifty (off 22nd st). Some rando in a pedo can was just sitting there. I couldn’t figure out why there’s trash all along the trail. Judging by the amount of money put into the trail and the city hall, you’d think it’d be clean. The section I did run was 1.3. Also, no trail map at the beginning or my end (it was an end point).

Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail

Bridgeport Walking Trail

August, 2021 by brucebeach

Trail is one mile out, and one mile back(you have to make the roundtrip). You walk up an incline from the railway station parking lot, about 75 yards or less, and the rest of the walk is flat. The first half thru the park is almost all in the shade and then the walk across the bridge/river is all in the sun. Very beautiful, peaceful, an easy stroll for older people, like my wife and I. If you find yourself in the Bridgeport, Alabama area, I would highly reccomend.

Richard Martin Trail

Great Ride

July, 2021 by pchambers1965

I decided to drive the 50 miles from Columbia Tennessee down here to this trail after work as a last minute idea. Great little trail. I started at Veto, Al (mile 11) and rode it to the beginning (mile 0.0) and back. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The tree canopy kept the trail extremely cool even though the temp was in upper 80s. This trail doesn’t need to be paved

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.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

Outstanding

July, 2021 by bwrenfroe

A beautiful greenway. Varied landscapes and a level, well-maintained path make this an outstanding ride. We drive from Muscle Shoals just to bike this trail.
