Hillsboro Trail

Too Bumpy

May, 2022 by john70jan

Nice trail, espevially for walking. Tree roots are heaving the pavement all along the trail making it very unpleasant for cycling.

Eastern Shore Trail

Eastern Shore

May, 2022 by dawnvosbein

Came over to the area for a job I needed to do on Sunday and Monday. Got here early on Sunday and after reading reviews and knowing the area we started in Fairhope and rode south. Nice path for leisurely riding. Only one at a time though so can’t visit with others. Nice and shady but best for fat tires. Some rough patches and a few spots missing pavement but not bad. Enjoyed it.

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway

beautiful trail; skaters: watch out for dirt

April, 2022 by darrienjamila2000

lovely trail; not too busy at 7 am on a saturday in early summer. the trail is completely paved, but there are sections where there is a fair amount of dirt on top of the asphalt, so it can get a little squirrely sometimes. also a fair amount of slopes (most aren’t super steep though) and somewhat rocky/bumpy sections, but if you’ve got good form you’ll make it through.

Rosemary Dunes Trail

Rosemary Dunes Trail

April, 2022 by thejake91739

This is the trail to take in Gulf State Park to see a gator or two! This is the typically flat, smooth, tree lined path in the park full of friendly folks, but one of the especially fun parts is getting to it via a long, wooden bridge on the Cross Park Trail. The bridge crosses over a waterway connecting Little Lake to Middle Lake and provides opportunities for wildlife viewing.

Rattlesnake Ridge Trail

Has Its Own Charms

April, 2022 by thejake91739

Rattlesnake Ridge Trail is another short link in the awesome chain of Gulf State Park trails. Not quite as shady or busy as its parallel sister trail Catman Road, it nonetheless has its own charm with its twists, turns, trees, benches and swing. Don't skip this one!

Catman Road Trail

A typically perfect Gulf State Park trail. Flat, smooth, picturesque, woodsy, and tree lined with plenty of extremely friendly walkers and bicyclists. Enjoy the views of the majestic pines and Little Lake.

Twin Bridges Trail

IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

April, 2022 by thejake91739

Twin Bridges is essentially an extension of the Gulf Oak Ridge Trail. As a first time Gulf State Park rider, I didn't even realize I was on a "different" trail until I came to its conclusion at the junction of it with Catman Road Trail and Rattlesnake Ridge Trail and saw the signs. I guess I should have known since I crossed two bridges, eh? Anyway, the "twin" bridges make the short, curvy, tree lined path a typically enjoyable Gulf State Park trail experience, especially when combined with all of the other miles of trails in the park!

Gulf Oak Ridge Trail

BEST TRAIL IN GULF STATE PARK

April, 2022 by thejake91739

Of all the trails in Gulf State Park, this was my favorite. An easy, gradual climb from the trailhead provides a spectacular view from an awesome viewing platform at the ridge's summit! The well maintained trail is fun to ride as it gently meanders through the woodlands. Benches and swings are plentiful along the tree lined trail to give one an opportunity to relax and enjoy the serenity of this path. Be sure to appreciate the variety of trees and the Spanish moss growing in some of them.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Great Ride

April, 2022 by ileana53

I'm 68 years old and rode the 66 miles from Anniston and back. I enjoyed the entire trail but the last 10 miles or so through Talladega National Forest were beautiful. Very well-maintained trail. The old train depot in Jacksonville is nice and Piedmont struck me as a typical Alabama town. Very glad I did it though strong wind gusts made it difficult at times in open areas.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

nice!

April, 2022 by csnoopy1030

Enjoyed nice ride for a first time visit from Florida.

Redstone Arsenal Fitness Trail

nice trail

April, 2022 by csnoopy1030

Lol! Visiting and had to get cleared and parked by golf course. A bit steep hill to get started on a tad pole trike but a nice trail overall.

Chief Ladiga Trail

nice smooth trail

April, 2022 by jpizzino

I just did the lower 13 miles from the Michael Tucker park in Anniston. Very nice mostly smooth trail mostly through woods and farmland, along some small streams. Lots of wildflowers this spring. Very little traffic on the few streets I had to cross, not many walkers and fewer cyclists on the trail. Just a caution if you are camping at the trailhead: flat field campground has many low spots holding water after yesterday’s rain. Watch where you put your tent. The restroom is only marginally maintained. Shower water is warm but only comes in brief bursts. Note to the town of Anniston: litter pick up along the trail is needed at your end. Rest of the trail was quite clean.
