Silver Comet Trail

A TALE OF TWO TRAILS - GA

January, 2017 by koldtoess

For a long, late fall weekend, my wife and I based camped at the Chief Ladiga Trail Campground. The campground is located in the Talladega N.F. approx. 7 miles from the GA state line. It is on the trial with plenty of acreage, a running creek, clean showers and a great staff (Terry & his dog Honey)! Hopping onto the trail riding east, we went through some of the most scenic RtTs we have ever rode. You will ride slightly uphill through beautiful forest and creeks until you hit the state line, the photo stop. You will continue with the same scenery, but on concrete, until you “dog leg” at the outskirts/industrial area of Cedartown. After the loop and city street maze, you can visit Cedartown via the unique S. College St. bridge or S. Main St. at the depot. The depot is a great spot to break and has a small museum and bathrooms. There are a couple of unique places to lunch but since it was Sunday most of the place were close so we ate some awesome Sunday-after-church fried chicken at Bojangles. While in town, ride round to courthouse to see the local sports statues. These parts of the CL & SC trails were great but bring plenty of fluids and be careful at all the crossings. After returning the same way, we had a great night sleep and I hit the CL trial westbound.

A TALE OF TWO TRAILS - AL

January, 2017 by koldtoess

This is a continuation of my ride on the Silver Comet Trail. What a beautiful ride west through the Talladega NF with a taste of the “old South”. Passing the N.F., you will travel tangent a roadway until you arrive at Piedmont and the Eubanks Welcome Center. The town was tearing down the old cotton/textile mill which is now common in the south, but I could not overcome an overwhelming since of melancholy in the sense we are destroying all our history, but….. The trail to Jacksonville is less woodsy, hillier and more populated but still very nice. Watch on the left side for the white sea mines in the “tree tunnel” before you travel through the impressive campus of Jacksonville State University. The trail remains much the same as before while your travel through Weaver to abruptly stop at the terminus, Holley Farm Road Trailhead just north of Anniston. The CL trial is asphalt and has some minor rough sections but nothing that takes away from its enjoyment. The towns and locals along the path take pride in the trail and are very welcoming to cyclist. If you get the opportunity, I would recommend visiting downtown Anniston by car along the unique Quintard Ave and eating at the local’s favorite Matas Greek Pizza. I think my love of this trail system stems the opportunities to camp, hike & bike all in one GREAT place.

Thanksgiving Week Ride

December, 2016 by lanabeckmann621

My husband and I drove to Anniston, Alabama from New Orleans and spent 2 days riding the Chief Ladiga and Silver Comet Trail. We stayed in Anniston and drove to Piedmont to ride to the Georgia State line. The trail was smooth and the scenery was beautiful. On Tuesday, we drove a little passed Rockmart, Georgia to ride the Silver Comet Trail. We wanted to ride through the train tunnel and across the tressel bridge, which was very cool. This trail was even smoother and the scenery was equally beautiful. We are looking forward to doing it again. If riding around this time, bring lots of gear to brave the cold weather.

Silver Comet Trail

Beautiful Disaster

November, 2016 by creativefunforkids

This is a lovely trail full of beautiful nature. We entered the trail in Smyrna, keeping our kids to the right side of the path to allow passing. Within 5 minutes a cycler came speeding up on us, we only knew because the people behind us were screaming for him to slow down after almost hitting their small child. He continued on In the right lane knocking my 3yr old nephew off his bike and to the ground, not stopping until others demanded he stop. Same thing happened on the way out as we were leaving, this man got off his bike and came after the family who yelled for him to slow down! I am horrified by the lack of courtesy for children by these cyclers we encountered and hope that this is not common and that next time will be a different experience.

Chief Ladiga Trail

October Ride

October, 2016 by cdouglas44

Great fun. Nice trail. Would do it again. Ate a late breakfast at Solid Rock Cafe in Piedmont which was good. They had smoothies and coffee there too but we opted for eggs and bacon.

FYI, there is a family of dogs living somewhere near the state line. 4 pups plus their Mom and Dad, no collars. Please pack a bag of dry dog food and/or treats for them. Seemed clean for their situation, very friendly but really hungry. Maybe someone could bring a bowl and leave it there so water can be shared with them. Thanks

Future of trail and lodging

September, 2016 by jim smith

Many have said to me,... there is nothing past Cedartown Ga for lodging....so "we ride from Smyrna to Cedartown..."; and I remind them there is 39 miles of continued trail on into Alabama to end at Weaver (Anniston) Alabama.

Future of the trail is to continue from Weaver into Anniston and link with the AmTrac and open up more travels on to NewOrleans or back to Atlanta and NYC.

I have property, in Weaver, and it is perfect for a B and B...but I need some Bicycle enthusiasts the help me spread the word, to get the place up and running prior to the completion of the trail to Birmingham. This City, Birmingham is building 470 miles of bicycle trails INSIDE the city and that will open the trail to Smyrna (Atlanta) ! so if any interest, please contact me.

Silver Comet Trail

looking for trail lovers and B and B seekers Atlanta to Birmingham...

September, 2016 by jim smith

Trail is great! I have traveled most of it and now am searching for any who know or are personally interested in sharing the word of potential B and B to come that sits at the end of the Chief Ladiga trail (Alabama's name of the Silver Comet trail ) as it enters the state of Alabama.

How neat would it be to have a B and B on the Alabama end much like the one at the Atlanta end? Many do not know, but Birmingham is about to build 470 miles of trail inside Bham... and before long the trail will continue to follow the former train track on to Anniston then on to Smyrna Ga. If your have any ideas on how to develop this idea further...please let me know.

Silver Comet Trail

Good ride once again

September, 2016 by bthomamd

Returned to ride portions of the Silver Comet trail and the Chief Ladiga trail and what fun.
Trails remain in good condition.
Stayed in a very bicycle friendly establishment in Cedartown, GA, the Quality Inn. Great location to ride both trails.

I've ridden portions of the Silver Comet trail now 5 times and enjoy it with each and every ride. The Silver Comet trail connecting with the Chief Ladiga trail makes for an especially enjoyable riding experience.

I'm looking forward to returning to the area to ride both trails.

Silver Comet Trail

Round trip from Dallas, Ga to Coots Lake

September, 2016 by elmedford

Best part of silver comet trail! Easy to moderate round-trip starting near Drummond Park trail head (mm 20.16) and ride west to Coots Lake (mm 33.48). Slight uphill grade westward (downhill heading back). Crosses 700' bridge, through national wildlife area and through long tunnel.

Shady Rolling Hills - Powder Spgs (mi11) to Rockmart (mi40)

August, 2016 by ajw

Gradual rolling hills (3rd gear up, 6th gear down) from mi11 to mi18. Then downhill to mi23, uphill to the tunnel at mi31, downhill to Rockport mi37. Then the trail veers off the old railbed through Rockville with ups and downs to mi40 where it becomes the sidewalk of US287. Since the old railbed is in use from Rockmart to Cedartown (mi53), the trail runs alongside the railroad for much of this stretch. Lots of parking areas along the route. I parked at the Paulding Co Chamber and rode 8mi out and back both ways, for 30mi round trip on Day1; and parked at Coots Lake Beach and did the same thing for another 30mi on Day2. I saw several police patrols in Smart cars on the trail, and there are cameras at various spots too. Was comfortable leaving the car at these two spots, and did not see any trouble anywhere. The trail was shady nearly the whole way. The tunnel at mi31 was fun, as was the trestle at mi23, and the village of Rockmart. An enjoyable 2 days.
