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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
