Robertsdale Trail Description

The Robertsdale Trail (a.k.a. Central Baldwin Rail-Trail) is a short linear route through the heart of Robertsdale that follows the former Louisville & Nashville Railroad line. While you won't find a formal trailhead facility or parking area, secure public parking is available at the main post office near the trail's northern terminus, on U.S. Highway 90, about a mile from the charming downtown. The city police department and county sheriff's office stand nearby.

The trail is generally wide enough to accommodate its variety of users, though at several road crossings it narrows to a concrete sidewalk. At other points the trail splits, allowing users to move in opposite directions. Along these sections, trailside benches, landscaping and mature southern-type flora draw small gatherings of locals, lending to the trail's small-town feeling and sense of community. Pause for a meal or browse the shops in downtown Robertsdale during your return stroll through this delightful town.

Parking and Trail Access

Directions: Take I-10 to Route 59 south into Robertsdale; turn east on U.S. 90. The post office is on the left, just past the trail crossing. Cyclists and walkers can access the trail from here, as well as from its southern terminus on East Silverhill Avenue.

Robertsdale Trail Reviews

It beats running on the road

I ran from north to south after starting at the very north end of the paved path. The path section of the path measured 1.75 miles (3.5 miles out-and-back). You can continue running onto a non-paved section of the trail. I stopped at 2 miles but it looks like i might be closer to 2.2 if you run all the way to the road (4.4 miles out-and-back).

You do cross a number of roadways. Most of these are small side streets but there are 2 larger roads where you may get stopped by traffic.

so so

Nice new parking area on the south side near the new tennis courts. The asphalt is in need of some repair and the mile markers have fallen down. Does have some lighting and at times crosses roads without sidewalks. One way then back is about 3 miles.

Inline Skating Review

Short, bumpy, partly sidewalk, and has several interruptions.
Bonus for having lamps (otherwise I would give 2 stars)
