Comfortable ride through the mountains of Alabama on the rails to trails path. Being an old railroad track, hills are no greater than a 2% grade making for a great ride for all. The path connects to the Silver Comet Rails to Trails path in Ga. and continues on for many miles. Rest stops and information booths scattered along the way. Some of the path is very rural and wooded.
