A fairly short hike that follows an overgrown logging road to a couple of different places to descend to the base. We went down by the top of the falls which involves sliding or stepping down a 3-4 foot high rock at one point. Recent rains made this slippery so we climbed out about 200 yards downstream and emerged onto the overgrown logging trail near blue markers. I think a descent there is very possible. A truly stunning spot ! The falls, pool and Collier Creek are spectacular. Round trip took us about an hour.

Great route if you’re preparing to take on the Appalachian Trail or run any mountainous trail races in the southeast. The “Stairway to Heaven” if run counter-clockwise from Adam’s Gap Trailhead is quite the challenge. Good views at the top and some pretty waterfalls at the bottom. If you’re looking for an easy day hike — this probably isn’t the trail for you.

This was an amazing hike. Nature did not disappoint me today! Easy trail and blazed really well!

Great trail that end at a dramatic and beautiful view of Birmingham. Took a different route than map, adding trail#5 which adds complexity.

I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon at OMSP, and easily covered the 8.1 miles of this recording (the main linked trail but with an extension along The Chimneys) despite getting myself throughly turned around and this getting a nice taste of every trail one can take after Maggie’s Glen. The path is almost entirely through the woods, but with plenty of water features along the way. Though muddy and slightly overgrown in a couple of places, the trails are generally well maintained, though it did live up to its “moderate” rating. On a cool Saturday afternoon in January it was moderately crowded with a pretty even mix of hikers and mountain bikers. A couple of general thoughts: - Be warned that, despite it being the year of our lord two thousand and twenty, the $5 day use fee is only payable in cash. They helpfully have an ATM right next to the gate that will let you get cash out for a $2.60 surcharge (yes, more than half the actual day use fee). - I highly recommend starting with the White segment and returning via Cat Dog Snake - White is definitely more interesting (and thus challenging), so tackle it early and then you’ll have a much easier return. - This is a *very* popular trail for mountain biking. Everyone I ran into was super courteous, but it’s good to be aware and keep your ears open especially since a lot of the curves are blind.

Great first trail hike with a 4 year old and 1.5 year old (in backpack). Easy, straight forward, neat overlooks of the caves below. Playground nearby.

The gate to the caves are closed so you can’t get into the caves. The hike around the caves is nice and very easy. Slight elevation.

I would rate this trail between easy to moderate. The trail is well defined and marked well. Due to the recent rains, there were several damp/soggy areas on the trail. There were also several blowdowns, but these were easy to get over or around. The elevation gains are moderate. Although the lake level is down this time of year, the streams were flowing very well. Saw several deer. All in all a good hike.

Nestled in the heart of Tuscaloosa, this trail offers a chance to get away from the city without leaving it. Birds, squirrels, small creeks, and evidence of a doe with her fawn remind you that you are in nature. I hiked it the day after a rain, so there were a few puddles, but easily hiked around. My app and the trail is labeled as 3 miles. There are no steep inclines, but there are several above ground roots. So even though it’s an easy trail, watch your step. The trail is pretty clearly marked with posts painted with a yellow tip. A few times the trail splits with out markers, but perhaps like life, it doesn’t matter which way you go, the trail comes back together and you end up at the same place.

in regards to the above warning, where can you park to hike this trail?

The approach via Grandview is now on private property, no trespassing. So approach Via Alabama Nature Center. Hilltop is the best for elevation, but all are great for birdsong and the quiet beauty of the woods. $5pp admission

Having never seen bamboo growing in the wild, I loved this park. The trail is very short, but very unique. Apparently in the past it was used for climate training by the military, which is also unique. Several types of bamboo were growing to towering heights. The trail also goes around a little pond where you can see and hear frogs and turtles. While short, this one was a lot of fun and very unexpected.

This trail is more of a walk thru a park instead of a hike. However, it is entirely paved and relatively flat, which is perfect for running (and why we love it). Super convenient and abundant parking too.

This was a nice trail park within the city limits - it gave the feeling of an escape with the convenience of easy access. We went on this trail in Jan and we did the trail as shown as well as the offshoot around the lagoons into the Piney Grove region and then went back via the backcountry trail. All in all it was approximately 4.5 miles. The trail was well marked (and well maintained) with maps abound as well as some pavilions and benches for a rest. If you take the offshoot, there are also restrooms by the picnic area at the lagoons. The trail was great for bird watching even in winter. We saw an egret, hawk, cardinals, geese, and more. We were hoping for an alligator, but sadly were out of luck lol. The lagoons were lovely and peaceful. However, the offshoot towards Piney Grove ran right by the highway, which kind of ruined the ambiance for me. On the whole it was a conveniently located dirt/paved trail (and I bet in the spring and fall it’s even nicer) within the city. We will return for a quick escape again the future.

No litter. Roll tide.

Nice trail, it is pretty rocky at the road access and up hill, there are a few trees over the oath in places.
