TSALAGI Trails

The TSALAGI Trails (pronounced Ja-la-gee meaning Cherokee Trails) of Clay County Alabama: four unique road trips that take you through the back roads of Clay County and for some, to places you have only dreamed about.

Any one of the four TSALAGI Trails provide a great day trip from Birmingham, Montgomery, Columbus, LaGrange, or Atlanta. Many who have already experienced the TSALAGI Trails call them the “Best kept secret in Alabama.”  Now, we want you to discover the secret, too.  All of the trails offer interesting scenery, plenty of photo opportunities and adventures you will share with family and friends and probably your grandchildren one day.

58 mile mostly dirt road trail that allows you to ford two creeks, a third creek is an option.   See a Treasure Forest, a waterfall, and some of the prettiest mountain scenery in Alabama.

  • NO TSI Trail

Why you have a sports car!  Curves, hills, top down, beautiful scenery, Ashland’s Historic Court House, and Antique Shops.
