Bike trails in total make a beautiful meandering training workout. Wonderful in Autumn

I had a really great time hiking for 4 hours there. I found the toughest sections to be fairly easy. There's a creek running alongside the Mud Trail. Some of the grasses alongside the trail get pretty tall so wear pants or keep an eye out for ticks. $5 to get into the park. I'm 41, in decent shape, and only hike occasionally when I'm out of town for work.

Very good place for beginners and intermediate riders.

For the most part this was an easy hike. In some areas it gets a little confusing. They are adding roads or making improvements to the trails and they have cut through some of the trails. I think I probably did a number of these trails because I wasn't sure were I was going at times. Overall a decent trail and I loved exploring the history of the place.

Cannonball is an excellent flow trail for mountain biking. Highly recommend all trails for all skill levels sans Furnace trail (advanced). Buy the annual pass!

Nice lollipop loop featuring Civil War era iron furnace. Route entirely follows two-track old roads including an iron haul road and a stagecoach road. On the harder side of easy due to length and several small hills. There are also many single-track mountain bike trails here, but if you end up hiking on single-track you have lost the main loop. Overall, a quiet, fairly easy hike with an historical flair.

This is your basic trail. Nothing fancy and there’s no good views. The park is a great place with history but for a good hike you have better places like Oak Mountain and the Pinhoti trail in Alabama. This trail is easy and great for kids for a hour or two hike but if your looking for great views and more of a challenge look elsewhere.

Nice place for families and for groups of people with different fitness levels. Lots of activities in addition to trails.

This is in between a pleasant stroll in the woods and a hike, but closer to a stroll. Well maintained but not necessarily wonderfully marked for beginners.

Great on a week day.

This was one of my first hikes in new hiking boots. The trails were in great shape with plenty of shade from the Alabama heat. I liked how most of the trails dovetailed into one another. We will definitely go back!

Very easy trail and very relaxing but not much to see.

This trail is ok, but nothing special really. Most of the loop trail is on gravel roads basically (albeit historical gravel roads). The few sightseeing highlights are the furnaces, the creek views and the slave cemetery. Trail is easy. There are many other trails at Tannehill also, some perhaps shorter but more interesting. This is kind of a large loop around the perimeter of the park. Did enjoy the labeling of all the various tree species on the first section.

Loved this trail. Lots to see on it

Took a nice hour and a half walk around the park. There were a lot of people around the river in the center of the park and in the campgrounds but the trails were not over crowded. It looks like they are doing a lot of expansion with their bike trails, B.U.M.P seems to be sponsoring it. Lots of historical buildings and sites to see. They did have a mineral and gem event going on as well as craft cabins running. Looks like a lot to do for a family with kids! There is a entrance fee: $5 adults, $4 seniors, and Children 6-11 $3.

It's a Thursday so there were very few people there. I took my dog through the Cemetery Trail and out through the Slave Quarters a total of about 3 miles. Really easy. The trails are not well marked but most of them are connected in a loop back to the same starting place. The river was very pretty. More of a stroll but it was nice.

Nice park for camping and day hiking.

Nice park for a weekend. We always enjoy bringing the camper here.

This is descriptive of the outermost wide trail. There are other multiple singletrack, bidirectional trails for hiking/mountain biking within the outermost trail that are far more fun.

Love this trail. It's easy to navigate and we have been back several times.

Tennehill Ironworks is a fantastic park! But the trails really need updating. It was very difficult to figure out where you were. Really read the map and have a good sense of the park before taking on the trails.

Never found a trailhead. Signage not very good. Singletrack was in good shape.

We went after reading about the local bike club creating a new single track around the wide loop of the old hiking/biking path. When we got there, no one had a trail map and only one Ranger knew where the trail head was. Once we got on the trail we lost the single track due zero markings. We had a blast making our own route but ended up sticking to the wide old loop for most of it. As we came across single track we would take it, but without a map or markings it was very hard to follow. The hills are steep and straight up but the downhills make up for it, the only problem is that you are sharing the road with hikers and there are blind curves so you have to moderate speed and bring a cowbell.
