Alabama

On the way back to Florida after visiting friends in Huntsville, Alabama, we visited the Chief Ladiga Trail at Piedmont. On a trip to Pensacola, we visited Alabama's Gulf Coast and biked on the Backcountry Trail at Gulf State Park. Scroll down or click on the link below for more details:

Chief Ladiga Trail
Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail


Chief Ladiga Trail: The Trail runs 32.5 miles from Anniston, AL, to the Georgia State Line where it joins the Silver Comet Trail (62 miles to Smyrna, GA). The trail goes through four cities and through Jacksonville State University. Built on an abandoned CSX rail bed, this was Alabama's first rails-to-trails conversion.
