These paved bike/hike trails make for a wonderful, active vacation. They run in several directions from the state park. Thanks to those who keep up these trails.

Can't say enough positive things about "our" trail. Walk, bike, run, skate with mult trailheads. Very easy walking to shaded picnic area, restrooms and boulder park. We use this trail at least 5x/ week. It's one of my favorite places in the world.

Did a bike rental and road 12+ miles. Scenery was amazing and this was a great workout. I haven't been on a bike in 20 years and this was a great way to make a new start. Will definitely go again.

14 miles of paved trails mostly shaded. Went bicycling and had a great time. Plenty of benches and places to rest and a few water fountains. Saw a cool turtle but no alligators

We stayed across from from on of the trails entrances. We never knew it was even there. We decided to go over one day and the trail system was wonderful. Great way to explore and to exercise.

I suggest you rent bikes, there is a place right before the turn off into the park that has decent prices. Beautiful park.

This place was an amazing surprise! In the heart of the city of Orange Beach, you can escape into a beautiful back country, full of wildlife! Rent a bike! You can cover a lot of ground while trying to stay cool!

There are now 27 miles of interconnected trails as of June 2017. They have really expanded the system. Some of the water fountains aren't working yet. Hopefully they will be turned on soon, but be sure to carry water with... More
