Best Paved Alabama Bike Trails...

Our Favorites for Safe, Fun Recreational Biking

Much of the biking in Alabama is mountain or road biking, but we visited two paved bike trails that we much enjoyed. Each trail page contains a detailed map, many photos, and brief first-hand report.

1. The Chief Ladiga Trail ranks as a premier bike trail at 32.5 miles. At the State line (wooded hill country), the trail connects to the 60-mile Silver Comet Trail in Georgia. Of the two rail-trails, we found the Chief Ladiga in Alabama to be the more tranquil ride. Most scenic is the first 13.6 miles in the Alabama hill country, a downhill grade from the State line to Piedmont, AL (pop 4400).

2. The Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail is actually a 15-mile "trail system" consisting of 7 short, interconnected, yet separately named trails located mostly within Gulf State Park. If your travels take you along Alabama's Gulf Coast, check it out.
