Buck Creek Greenway - Alabaster
The Buck Creek Greenway trail contains approximately 3 miles of walking and biking paths with a 1.5 mile linear main trail. It connects two major parks: Buck Creek Park and Warrior Park. There are three trail heads to access the nature trail.
Two are located at the existing parks (701 Sixth Avenue South and 100 Depot Street). The third trail head parking lot is near the YMCA and old Buck Creek Mill site. The Alabaster Senior Center is near this site. The linear trail topography is user friendly and consists of natural surfacing. This segment will easily accommodate strollers, bikes, pets, and seniors. There are five bridges on the trail with the associated handrails and approach ramps.
