This beautiful 10 mile trail cuts through the low ridges in west central Georgia from Hamilton to Pine Mountain. Calloway restaurant sits about the halfway point. Leaving from Hamilton you can ride to Pine Mountain or take 354 into FDR Park for a more challenging mountain course. Possibilities and workout levels are endless.
Great trail for riding bikes but very poorly maintained. Rode from 11:30 am until 2:30 pm on a Sunday and not one restroom marked along the trail was unlocked and most were very unkept and grown up on the outside. We’ve visited and ridden trails all over the southeast and we were disappointed in this trail. Loved the trail but didn’t like anything else about it, especially the constant dodging of dog poop right there on the paved trail. You would think that people would at least get them in the grass off the side! Safety for your vehicle is also a priority as most parking areas are high crime.
I've ridden this trail a few times in recent years on my annual drive south to Florida. It's only about 11 miles long on the east side and 1 mile on the west side, but very scenic and interesting. I stay at the Courtyard Phenix, which has easy access to the trail over a cool bridge. The Hotel Indigo rooftop bar has a not-to-miss view, although food and service is meh.
Rode from PIne Mountain to Hamilton. Excellent ride on brisk November day. So nice to have this new rails to trails.
We biked from Pine Mtn to the Country Store, 9 miles RT. Lovely!
We rode from Pine Mountain to the Country Store. There is a sign warning to go no further, but the trail appeared to continue. Is the sign obsolete? We ended up with a 9 mile ride which was fine. The trail was lovely.
Very scenic and well kept.
Nice woodland views as you cross the Pine Mountain ridge. The grade is not very steep. Hope it eventually is expanded to south Harris county.
Yesterday I rode the Man-O-War Railroad Recreation Trail. It's now 10 miles long, as it runs from a little north of Pine Mountain to Hamilton. There is parking on both ends and in the middle, at the Callaway Gardens Country Store. While it is flat in Pine Mountain and Hamilton, it climbs up or rolls down Pine Mountain most of the time. There are benches and trash cans, on the north end, and paved spots for more, in the future. I will ride this trail again soon.
Chattahoochee River trail is one of the most scenic of the 30 Rail to Trails that we’ve ridden. Paved, smooth, relatively flat (a few inclines a trail goes up to parks or trailheads) We stared at the 14th Street pedestrian bridge that connects Georgia to Alabama crossing the Chattahoochee (rapids at this location) The trail goes under the bridge and you can go north or south from this location. Going north we had a detour, followed by trail closure for repaving. Going back south no issues. Many parks, benches and shade along the trail. Made a stop at the National Civil War Navel Museum, really great display of actual ships and recovered artifacts from Civil War. 15 miles of great views, smooth trails, and very few people on the trail, especially on southern end.
Newly upgraded trail that is now 4.5 miles long. Beautiful scenic trail that is NOT flat. It is essentially a V shaped terrain. It starts with a 1.5 mile gradual slope southward followed by a 3 mile uphill slope. Slightly challenging uphills grade
Just rode 5 miles! Lovely improvements made and a lot of opportunity!
