Best Horseback Riding Trails in Alabama

#5 - Chief Ladiga Trail: Anniston - State Line

Weaver, Alabama

Length: 52.5 km

The Chief Ladiga Trail is nicely paved from the trailhead near Anniston to the Alabama/Georgia state line. It is an inviting trail for travelers of all types including inline skaters, bikers, recumbent riders, wheelchair users, hikers, and even equestrians (in the Cleburn County section). The 100-mile combination of the Silver Comet Trail and Chief Ladiga Trail is reputed to be the longest continual non-motorized path in the country. It's amazing how much is packed into this trail as it wanders through forests, wetlands, hills, a university campus, and Alabama towns. Very few other trails jam so much diversity into such a short distance. And it is so easy to take it all in. Although most people explore the trail for its own natural beauty, others use it as a way to reach the Pinhota (hiker) Trail, to view the beautiful Jacksonville State University campus, or as a way to reach Georgia's Silver Comet Trail and eventually all the way to Atlanta Georgia. As with all trails, the Chief Ladiga is populated with friendly, happy people. But the Chief Ladiga has a big advantage, and it's called the Eubanks Welcome Center. Located in Piedmont, Alabama, the Welcome Center is your one-stop location for trail maps, souvenir t-shirts, trail information, and the camaraderie of the staff and other trail users. It is one of the friendliest, most helpful trail centers in the United States. Accessibility: There is a large parking lot off Weaver Road at the south end of the trail. Its surface is unknown and it does not appear to have any designated accessible parking spaces or striped access aisles. The trail surface is paved asphalt/concrete and typically at least five feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated under 5%) so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely be able to traverse the trail.Show more

I found this to be an easy quick 2 mile walk. If you are just starting like me to work on getting healthy this is perfect. The history that you are walking around makes it interesting too.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Nice trail, but watch out for "road apples"

September, 2021 by stvatandem

My wife and I rode from Piedmont to the AL/GA state line. The asphalt pavement was pretty good and the areas where tree roots had pushed up the pavement have been ground down. The trail is a steady climb starting just east of Piedmont up to the state line. The bridge transitions are fairly smooth. Starting at 8.7 miles (state line is 0.0) to 4.8 miles, we encountered many "road apples" (aka horse poop) on the pavement. Fortunately, the trail was not busy and we were able to dodge them. Apart from that, the trail is a nice ride.

High Ore Line Trail

Great Trail!!

September, 2021 by a.rae1980

My son and I did this trail recently on a beautiful Saturday, plus the extension of Red Mountain Park, a workout. Round trip a little over 6+ miles and not being an experienced biker, just a rider from time to time, this really pushed me. I did walk some but mostly rode.
The extension of Red Mountain Park side is tougher than just the High Ore Trail alone, but well worth the ride.
There is not parking for the High Ore Trail that we could find except for at the Red Mountain Park Side and ride it down and through the Trail.
We'll be back and hopefully I can ride the whole trail this time without walking any. :-)

September, 2021 by v8ihaynh23

About half this pleasant short trail is in shade and half in sun. Watch for interesting wildlife, including herons, owls, turtles, snakes, beavers (if they haven’t been killed off ¿), and even alligators. Watched a large (5-6ft) one sunbathing back in May and a small (12-18in) one this week (Sept4). Nice trail. Stay out of the ponds. Looking forward to linking this trail to new ones in near future.
