Heritage Park Trail

Poorly marked

August, 2017 by wilsonjan55

My husband and I drove down from Cleveland TN after reading about the Heritage Park Trail online. The pictures online made it very appealing. However, the directions to find the park and walking trails were zero. Our GPS system brought us to a left turn in the town and we were left on her own to find the park We found a boat ramp and a small playground that some children were playing on I asked a lady there if she could tell me where the trails were. She thought if we took the walkway around where the children were playing it would put us on the trail and take us down next to the Atlanta Braves park. We ended up at what look like a sewer treatment plant. There were no markings on the trail to say go this way or go that way. We could see a beautiful historic area across the river but wasn't sure how to get there. On our return back after about 2 miles in the sun and passing a sewage treatment plant we decided to take a bridge across to the other side where we found a very pleasant walking trail. If you advertise your trail, you should give some definite directions for the trail and there should be signs along the way identifying how many miles and what's up ahead. Maps identifying all of the historical buildings would even be nice. Unfortunately we were on a time crunch and regret we didn't get to see the best part of this trail. Not likely to come back.

Noonday Creek Trail

Great trail / very little shade

July, 2017 by me31

Ran the whole length of the trail. It is well marked and a nice run, but most of it is exposed without any shade cover, along major roads through an industrial district. As a bonus, the trail ends at Kennesaw Mountain, so you can continue your walk/run up to the top of the mountain.

No water along the trail, so bring some money to buy drinks at a store or restaurant along the way.

Bathrooms, etc. are at the Kennesaw Mountain park (and of trail).

Noonday Creek Trail

Tree danger

July, 2017 by drkentaylor

I use the trail weekly and do enjoy it. However, it is dangerous to walk by the BIG TREE between Bells Ferry and the mall as it drops dead limbs on the trail, which have nearly struck me in the past.

Fourth of July Experience

July, 2017 by Lantana42

Normally wouldn't go on a holiday, but in this case, it was the best time for all of the participants. We had our son-in-law, two grand-daughters (14 and 11), my wife and myself. All experienced riders. We expected the trail to be crowded and it was with walking families, very young bike and skateboard riders, folks with dogs, runners and joggers. A great mix and a fun time, most of the time. Then there were a few bikers that thought they owned the trail. One fool just couldn't slow down when coming to a crowded curve and went right off the trail full bore almost into the creek. So, one has to be careful on this trail of the fools on bikes. Overall, we had a great time and will be back again. The Big Creek Trail we rode was the southern part and we trail headed behind the Ethan Allen store on Northpointe Parkway. Good facilities and parking area.

Silver Comet Trail

Tara Dummond to Coot's Lake

July, 2017 by ledoux245

Roughly a 26-mile round trip, this is a beautiful stretch of the Silver Comet trail. It is pretty flat most of the way, all though I joked with my wife that it seemed like it was uphill both ways. It practically always seemed like we were going slightly uphill, but I guess that was an illusion, since clearly we couldn't have been going uphill both ways! There is a lot of shade and the ride is interesting as you ride through forests, over a high bridge, and through a couple of tunnels. One thing to know: the beach at Coot's Lake is no longer open to the public. We got caught in an unexpected heavy thunderstorm and sought shelter there until the storm passed, but were rebuffed by the owner. We were two veterans on July 4th simply seeking shelter from the rain for a few minutes. Sad. Anyway, stay away from there - they don't want you there. Otherwise, the trip was great.

Chief Ladiga Trail

My Go-To Trail

June, 2017 by firecross625

This trail was easily the most welcome surprise I found after enrolling at Jacksonville State University. Paved and flat, it's a perfect trail for beginners (like yours truly) but the sheer length of the trail opens it up to experienced wayfarers as well. It's a beautiful, tree-lined experience with plenty of shade for extended trips. My usual routes are from the Jacksonville train station to Alexandria-Jacksonville hwy and from Park Place Apartments to Germania Springs Park, alternating which one I do each day. Both are just over 3 miles round-trip. The trail is lively -- so lively, in fact, that I've never gona down it without meeting at least 3 others. If you prefer your walk in solitude, then this trail is not what you're looking for. Otherwise, I believe everyone should give Ladiga a shot! Also, if you wish to go further, the trail becomes the Silver Comet Trail at the state line, extending on into Georgia.

Silver Comet Trail

Ride in the Woods - Cedartown to Borden Springs

June, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Esom Hill, close to the GA/AL border. We rode the Comet east to Cedartown mi53 (see my reviews of other sections of Comet), then turned around and rode west to Borden Springs. 27mi roundtrip. Trail is concrete in GA, then turns to asphalt in AL, but both well maintained. It runs through the woods almost the whole way. Shaded, but no scenery but trees. No facilities either. It is a rail-trail, and you think its flat, but its not. Esom Hill is the crest, and its down hill both ways from there - about 100ft elevation change on both sides. But its gradual, so its very doable. But you will notice the difference one direction over the other. Will return to do final west section.

We parked at Esom Hill, close to the GA/AL border. We rode the Comet east to Cedartown mi53 (see my reviews of other sections of Comet), then turned around and rode west to Borden Springs. 27mi roundtrip. Trail is concrete in GA, then turns to asphalt in AL, but both well maintained. It runs through the woods almost the whole way. Shaded, but no scenery but trees. No facilities either. It is a rail-trail, and you think its flat, but its not. Esom Hill is the crest, and its down hill both ways from there - about 100ft elevation change on both sides. But its gradual, so its very doable. But you will notice the difference one direction over the other. Will return to do final west section.

Silver Comet Trail

Loved this Trail!

May, 2017 by gahanosh

First time on the Comet at the recommendation of a friend. He wasn't kidding - this is a great trail. Well maintained with beautiful scenery. Road the leg from the Georgia State line to Cedartown. Wow just wow. Will do again soon.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Best Trail Yet

May, 2017 by gahanosh

I've ridden a number of rail trails and the Chief Ladiga is the best yet. Started in Piedmont AL and the parking was the best; clearly marked lot right behind the police station! Couldn't ask for a better start. Well marked and groomed trail throughout our ride to the Georgia State line. Several stops along the way allow you to rest and even have a picnic lunch. Only needs one or two more bathroom facilities. Worth the drive to cycle this great trail. Will do so again soon.

Keswick Park Extension Trail

A Nice Start

March, 2017 by irisknapp

For it being just over a half mile it's a nice little trail. It was done very well. It's not much use for a serious walker, jogger or bicyclist but it's nice for a casual walk or to go on with kids.
The online map doesn't show where to park. We parked by Five Guys in the Walmart shopping center but there is also parking on the Keswick Park side by the adult softball field.
I hope there are plans for an extension. I drive to the Roswell/Alpharetta Greenway & Silver Comet on a weekly basis. Would love to have something closer to home. I LOVE Chamblee but we sorely lack a good trail.
