Southeastern Outings Dayhike, Richard Martin Trail, Elkmont, Alabama

Presented by Southeastern Outings at Hayden/Corner Park and Ride is meeting place

Walk on one of Alabama’s rails-to-trails conversion routes on an old railroad right of way.  This smooth trail, formerly called the Limestone Rail Trail,  is wide and level.  No hills on this trail.  This trail is located in extreme North Alabama just to the west of I-65 and a few miles south of the Tennessee-Alabama border.

The hike is rated easy.  We will hike a total of 5.3 miles. On this particular hike you will be walking on a scenic trail which goes through fields, near houses and through the woods.  The trail winds through wetlands with wildlife and a great variety of birds.  On the trail you will pass the site of the Civil War Battle of Sulphur Creek Trestle.
