Chief Ladiga Rail toTrail Trail

Friends of the Covered Bridge Trail invite the public to join members for a fun, relaxing day on Alabama's premier rail-trail, the Chief Ladiga Trail in Piedmont. 

This trail began in 1990 as the first ISTEA rail-trail conversion project in Alabama. It now runs more than 25 miles. People from the local area and across the state use the trail. Supporters say the trail has become a resource for communities along its path. The trail has increased tourism dollars, benefited business, and enhanced the quality of life for those living along or near the trail. Public educational areas have been developed near the trail.

Want to travel the Chief Ladiga rail-trail? Meet at the Oneonta Public Library, Second Street and Ingram Avenue, Saturday, October 16, 8 A.M., to car pool to Piedmont (about 1.5 hours from Oneonta). Bring helmet (required), bicycle or roller blades, lunch, water and a day pack. Optional dinner (Dutch treat) afterwards. Showers available.

Those going will be split into groups: choose between riding 30, 20, or 10 miles or less, all on pavement.

On view from the trail is Dugger Mountain, the next proposed wilderness area for Alabama.
