Mountain Biking Beaver Creek / Forever Wild Trails

****   Add a review
#14 of 99 mountain bike trails in Alabama
#1,376 in the world

The Dothan Forever Wild Trails is part of the ongoing Alabama Forever Wild Land Trust, creating mountain biking and hiking trails throughout the state. The Leisure Services Department was heavily involved in spearheading the efforts to make the vision of the Trails a reality. It began with 40 acres of city-owned land inside the city limits near the old Beaver Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. When Wells Fargo Bank added 60 nearby acres to the 40 already owned by the city, the vision to do something even bigger began to form. Eventually, about 400 acres were secured and submitted to Alabama 's Forever Wild program, which identifies land to be protected forever as a natural preserve.The beginner trail and pump track opened in 2015.

The rest of the trails opened on October 1, 2016 and are a 10 mile system consisting of six separate trail loops linked together by connectors/bridges. The Trails are accessed from 3 parking lots, one off of Flowers Chapel Road and two off of Fortner Street.

The trails are typically open from 6:30 am until dark unless they are undergoing maintenance.

Rider questions

Q: Is the walking trails open too
A: Yes. The biking and walking trail is the same trail. Multi-use. The recommendation is to walk counter-clockwise and riders ride clockwise in order to see and avoid each other.
