Best Ways to Enjoy Spring

Spring is here, so opt outside. Explore outdoors and soak up the rays.

From Rail to Trails Opening Day on April 8th, and even though our trails are open year round, cycling season has begun. So, hit the Ladiga Trail, for 95 miles, if you include Silver Comet, for peaceful pedaling and the occasional gradual incline. If you're up for climb, check out the adrenaline bringing trails at Coldwater, 35 miles perfect for any mountain biking enthusiast, hiker or trail runner. Cheaha Challenge Cometh, so participants best be considering the training rides and the Iron Mountain Challenge to prepare for May 21.
If you're not a cyclist but enjoy action packed sports, check out this weekend's Alabama Cycling Classic, featuring the Noble Street Festival, the Sunny King Crit, and the McClellan Road Race.

Terrapin Creek is open, so float with No Worries, Terrapin Outdoor or Redneck Yacht Club.

Spring is an extremely popular time for festivals.
Enjoy the cycling entertainment and delectable food at the Noble Street Festival (April 8).
Oxford celebrates the annual Legend of Lickskillet this year on May 13th in Historic Down Oxford.
The National Park Service celebrates the new Freedom Riders National Monument May 13th too.
JSU launches the brand new arts and music JamFest in conjunction with Cheaha Challenge weekend on May 20th.

When it rains it pours!
