Enjoy a biking, hiking, or horseback riding adventure on your next visit to Alabama State Parks.
Come explore the more than 450 miles of trails that the Alabama State Parks has to offer. Natural beauty abounds in Alabama. There are hiking, biking, and equestrian trails that provide every skill level with opportunities to see the diverse geology and plant and animal communities throughout the state.
Because of the importance of the trails to the parks system, we have created a voluntary trails program that will focus on improving and managing the entire Alabama State Parks trails system. The Dirt Pass Trails Team Program is a way that people can voluntarily contribute financially to improving and managing the Alabama State Parks trails system.
