Decatur Trail

Smooth Sailing

August, 2017 by joel10

Great trail for easy biking. Decatur just added several miles and plan to add additional trails soon. Particularly good for family rides if you start at Point Mallard. Much of those trails are not shared with vehicles. Beginning near Market Street the paths are on city streets, but still well marked. The majority, if not all, of the trails are on asphalt. There is plenty of parking at all the trailheads.

Tennessee River Greenway

Short Trail but Scenic Views of the Tennessee River

July, 2017 by rmheeth

This trail is part of the Huntsville Greenway system. The northern end of this trail is connected to the southern end of the Aldridge Creek Greenway at the entrance to Ditto Landing Park on Hobbs Island Road. There isn't a parking lot at this point but I guess you could park on the side of the road. The trail proceeds south for a short distance to the main part of the Ditto Landing Park. Although this trail has little or no markings or signs, Ditto Landing is small enough that it is hard to get lost. Just ride past the pavilion and south to the river, then turn east (left) and you will run into the main part of the greenway, a wide paved trail along the river.

A little ways down the trail, you will pass by an old warehouse with a large, flat concrete area going out to a docking port on the riverbank. This is the old State Docks which hasn't been used in decades. The trail continues on by the river to the Madison County Marina at the east end of the trail.

This is a short but pretty trail with good views of the river including the US-231 bridge. You will often see a lot of small boats on the river with the occasional barge going by.

Although it is a short trail, combining this with the Aldridge Creek Greenway (another nice trail) makes for a very nice ride.

Yoholo Micco, The Creek Indian Trail

Starts off great!

July, 2017 by nkknox4

The trail is pretty good! The trail starts off great! After you cross the bridge the scenery goes away. It is a great exercise trail! Loved it until crossing bridge and then it turns into just a asphalt walkway in the middle of ??? and a campground at the very end. I will say the views of the lake, the bridge over the lake, the cool old architectural things, the bird scenery, the history and the waterfall make up for the last part of the trail! So yes I would go back!

Gorgeous views and smooth, steady asphalt. What more could you ask for?

Chief Ladiga Trail

My Go-To Trail

June, 2017 by firecross625

This trail was easily the most welcome surprise I found after enrolling at Jacksonville State University. Paved and flat, it's a perfect trail for beginners (like yours truly) but the sheer length of the trail opens it up to experienced wayfarers as well. It's a beautiful, tree-lined experience with plenty of shade for extended trips. My usual routes are from the Jacksonville train station to Alexandria-Jacksonville hwy and from Park Place Apartments to Germania Springs Park, alternating which one I do each day. Both are just over 3 miles round-trip. The trail is lively -- so lively, in fact, that I've never gona down it without meeting at least 3 others. If you prefer your walk in solitude, then this trail is not what you're looking for. Otherwise, I believe everyone should give Ladiga a shot! Also, if you wish to go further, the trail becomes the Silver Comet Trail at the state line, extending on into Georgia.

Richard Martin Trail

Tree Tunnel Paradise

June, 2017 by willmarth2

We started in Elkmont at the caboose and traveled south. Beautiful tree tunnel almost all the way to Athens. There are gently sloping hills. We went early in the morning in June and there is a swamp area to the East with green algae that reflects beautifully. Beware of mosquitoes.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Ride in the Woods - Cedartown to Borden Springs

June, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Esom Hill, close to the GA/AL border. We rode the Comet east to Cedartown mi53 (see my reviews of other sections of Comet), then turned around and rode west to Borden Springs. 27mi roundtrip. Trail is concrete in GA, then turns to asphalt in AL, but both well maintained. It runs through the woods almost the whole way. Shaded, but no scenery but trees. No facilities either. It is a rail-trail, and you think its flat, but its not. Esom Hill is the crest, and its down hill both ways from there - about 100ft elevation change on both sides. But its gradual, so its very doable. But you will notice the difference one direction over the other. Will return to do final west section.

Indian Creek Greenway (AL)

Worth the exercise

May, 2017 by lordrindal

Awesome trail to run, walk, or bike. Runs along the creek, has multiple bridges, mostly flat surface, grass is cut on both sides to open up road. Saw rabbits, squirrels, cows, and horses along the trail.

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway

Easy, Friendly trail

May, 2017 by registerkl

Shared asphalt greenway for bikers, walkers, runners. Follows a beautiful creek. Screened from road traffic but not remote. Used by All ages. Popular morning, day & early evening. Although shared, most bikers know to shout "on your right!" as they overtake walkers. Plenty of parking at east end of trail. Pro: Wide, Shaded, Mowed & caretaken, Easy. : No potties unless Homewood field potties are open, a few car breakins recently so stash your goodies well, dog walkers sometimes don't clean up w/doggie bags.

Richard Martin Trail

Good walk, but not the dogs!!!

May, 2017 by aebetter

Loved my hike including lunch in Elkmont. The dogs in Veto made me most uncomfortable. Won't be back.
