Trussville Sports Complex
||Beginner - Intermediate
Great set of trails in Trussville !
There are 4 to 6 miles of trail and it is not finished.
- The trails wind around the baseball, soccer, softball,
tennis and other areas of the Trussville Sports Complex.
- B.U.M.P. is in the process of adding several miles of
fine single track to the trails which are already there.
For work days check the B.U.M.P. web site.
- This area has great potential as a playground for anyone
on a Mountain Bike. I love the place.
- It has no hard climbs or fast down hills, but great
single track. Some log obstacles and some nice rocks. Big
- This page should help you find it. Just ride anywhere you
see a trail and maybe you can figure it out. You should
have fun anyway. More information coming soon I hope.
I got a
copy of a map from Cahaba Cycles. It is a black and white copy of
a color map. I have had to modify it so that it is readable. I
will improve it some after I have ridden the trails more.
- The official hours of the Sports Complex are sun up until sun down.
- You can ride any time you can get in and see well enough to ride.
- From I-59 get off at exit 141. This is the
- Go East on Chalkville Rd. If you are headed North on I-59
you will turn right on Chalkville.
- Travel about 0.9 miles then turn left on Oak St. You will
pass Poplar and Pine Streets.
- While traveling on Oak St, go through one stop sign. I
think the name of the street changes after you pass the
first stop sign. I believe it is Cherokee St.
- Go over a bridge.
- At a second stop sign, turn left into the Sports Complex.
- I saw no street or road name sighs inside the sports complex the last
time I was there.
- Travel this road past the Softball fields on the right
side of the road. Watch out for the speed bumps.
- At the first fork take the left road.
- Go past the baseball fields on the left side of the road.
- Take the first road past the baseball fields into the
baseball parking lot.
- You can drive all the way to the lower end of the parking
lot and park near a brick pump house.
- One of the trails is across the parking lot from the ball
fields. You will see it.
- You do not have to park here. Once in the Trussville
Sports Complex you can park almost anywhere.
My riding experience here is very limited, but plan to ride
it more. My description of the trails is pretty lame. Maybe
someone who knows more will e-mail me some info soon. Maybe a
map. If you are parked in the baseball field parking lot this
is the description. Pick up the trail on the back side of the
parking lot. Start riding on this trail clockwise. Take a
trail named Dead Dog Trail when you come to it. Ride it to
the tennis courts. Take the pavement to the left a short
distance to Big Mountain Loop on the left side of the road.
This will come out on the pavement above the soccer fields.
Ride down the back of the soccer fields. Stay off of the
field. Go behind the fence. Follow you nose and bear left
until you pick up a single track which will go to the right. Ride this
single track, Pump House Trail, as it switches back and forth up the side of
the mountain. This is the best part of the ride. After a couple of miles of trail you will come out on the
entrance not far from the gate. Ride the paved bike path to
the right and watch for a trail to enter the woods down to
the left. Take it and follow it back to the baseball field
As soon as I find out I will put it here. The local bike
shops are a little vague just to be honest with you. If you
get the right person there they can tell you something. The
wrong person won't know as much as I do.
Contact any of the Birmingham area bike
shops for details.
