Sokol Park Mountain Biking Trail System
Less than six miles away from downtown Tuscaloosa, Sokol Park is a short drive for Tuscaloosa residents. With over 11 miles of trails for beginning, intermediate, and experienced riders, Sokol Park offers some great riding opportunities.
The area within Sokol Park that contains the trail system is relatively compact, making the trail sections very tight and almost stacked onto one another. This layout makes navigating the trails on your own like moving in a maze in spite of decent signage and the WAMBA trail map. We recommend that new trail users either join a WAMBA group ride or team up with a friendly local in the parking lot to “learn the trail.”
In spite of the navigational challenges, getting lost is not a great concern since all trails are loops that either come back to the Main Sokol Trail, or return to the field that is adjacent to the park lot. The majority of the trails are rated intermediate (per International Mountain Biking Association rating criteria) due to tight turns, roots, constantly changing elevation, and the occasional trail grade that exceeds 15%.
