Creekline Trails of Opelika is a community-driven initiative to create hiking and biking pathways along our creeks and roadways, while cultivating interest in preserving Opelika’s natural resources. The overall vision features more than 20 miles of nature trails and ADA-friendly multiuse paths.
With your help on Opelika Giving Day, we will break ground together on the first section of the Creekline: Rocky Brook Nature Trail! This initial 0.3-mile segment will be a natural surface footpath along the northern bank of Rocky Brook Creek from Oak Bowery Road to Blackhawk Drive. Donations will purchase materials for various trail features, including a wetland boardwalk, foot bridge, gravel parking area, and wayfinding signage. Surplus funds will kickstart the 0.7-mile trail extension from Blackhawk Drive to White Road! Future connectivity along the Rocky Brook Nature Trail may include Municipal Park to the east and Wood Duck Heritage Preserve to the west. Stay tuned to dirty your hands during the community trailblazing event after we reach our goal!
