Each Spring Keep Opelika Beautiful coordinates the Azalea & Dogwood Trail for Opelika. This event brings in visitors from across the state that appreciate the beautiful blossoms and lovely homes. The Trail begins and ends at the corner of 2nd Avenue and 8th Street and is approximately 5.5 miles. We let Mother Nature dictate the start and end date to the Trail each year. There are green arrow signs throughout the city directing each turn. Along with directions printed and online, the signs usher visitors and residents through the Azalea & Dogwood Trail. In 2018, letters were mailed to all residents along the Trail encouraging them to plant and maintain azaleas on their property.
