“With over 15 miles of singletrack, Chewacla offers a place to ride for all types of riders.”

None. We are open to ride year round!
Chewacla State Park is a special piece of land located in Central Alabama, just outside the Auburn city limits. Labelled as the last foothill of the Appalachians', Chewacla transports it's visitors to a terrain more similar to those found in North Carolina than Central Alabama.
Our trail system encounters many rock out crops, lake views, creeks, and historic features that make Chewacla State Park a truly unique experience. Our trails range from the very beginner friendly CAMP Trail to our technical, feature heavy Dell's Trail
to intermediate singletrack. We are also currently in the process of working on a skills area, bmx track, and flow trail system to add even more biking options.

History & Background
Many of the trails in this system utilize old CCC camp areas and the original Auburn Bike Path that at one time lead from Downtown Auburn to Wrights Mill. That bike path was created in the late 1800's. Chewacla was also host of the very first NORBA National race east of the Mississippi River.
