Eastern Shore Trail

Eastern Shore Trail

September, 2022 by mvporter

Recently I traveled along the Eastern Shore Trail as a nostalgic experience with the hopes of returning and riding the length of the trail along Mobile Bay. And to confirm what others have said about the trail condition. I was utterly disappointed. What Trail Link describes as a beautiful bike trail is nothing more than a narrow unmaintained sidewalk with dangers fraught at driveways and intersections. (It may not even be worthy of that dismal description.) Please remove it from the list of other very fine and noteworthy trails.

Fort Morgan Road Trail

Nice trail. !!!!!

September, 2022 by mcmillan7

The trail was in good shape and I grabbed some of the geocaches along the way. Coming back to town I had a little headwind but wasn’t to bad.

Eastern Shore Trail

Miss labeled trail!

August, 2022 by bobd_tl

My wife and I rode from Daphne to Fairhope and back, 18 miles on Sunday morning. The area is beautiful and very friendly. The trail… it is at best a sidewalk! In some areas, additional width has been added but in doing so has significant space creating very real hazards to road bikes! The path cross every driveway, has poor transitions from the path to road crossing. It is to narrow to deal with oncoming walked or joggers. It is impossible ride at a comfortable pace, so after about three miles, we got of the trail and rode in the roadway.

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.

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

Catman Road Trail

April, 2022 by thejake91739

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.

Eastern Shore Trail

Fairhope going south

March, 2022 by vc2019

After reading the reviews on the north section, parked at Fairhope pier and road north. If you can tolerate the first 1.5 miles of narrow trail next to the road and some pedestrians who do not move to one side to allow bikes to pass, the trail does widen and can see the bay.

Eastern Shore Trail

Not a Bike trail -Dangerous

February, 2022 by cewittkowske

Hard to rate as a bike trail because this was nothing more than broken up sidewalk with deep craters and curbs. Lots of trip hazards for pedestrians and not ADA compliant. We aborted after 7 miles and the only other biker we saw was on the road risking his like without a shoulder. Hopefully the local communities can take a look at how improvements to the trail system results in huge economic benefits. One example is the Pinellas trail Tarpon Springs to St Pete FL.

Eastern Shore Trail

Road Closure

May, 2021 by bikewalknampa_tl

Except for a few improved bridges the trail is still in same poor condition as described on the previous reviews. In addition, as of yesterday there was a road closure and detour just as you start to get into Fairhope. The detour takes you onto a skinny sidewalk along a busy road. We chose to turn around at that point and return to our vehicle parked at a gas station in Daphne. We would recommend 1) reading all these reviews first and 2) using public transportation to return to Daphne if you DO manage to get to Fairhope. Fairhope is a lovely destination but this trail is not for a casual cyclist on a cruiser. We have very good bikes and lots of experience and found it to be just plain dangerous.
