Michael Tucker Memorial Park & Chief Ladiga Trail

      

   




Anniston’s Michael Tucker Park currently serves as the southern terminus of the Chief Ladiga Trail. The park was named in memory Dr. Michael Tucker, a noted Anniston physician and long-time bicycle enthusiast. Nestled within a pecan grove, the park offers parking the trail, a gazebo, a drinking fountain, 16 site primitive campground and rest-room facilities.

The Chief Ladiga Trail is Alabama’s first extended rails to trails project. It extends over 33 miles and connects the cities of Anniston, Weaver, Jacksonville, and Piedmont as it travels through Calhoun and Cleburne Counties. The trail provides a safe, non-motorized way to travel, exercise, and relax while enjoying the outdoors. Streams, wetlands, forest, farmlands, and mountains can be seen along this family oriented pathway.
