Rode this and other sections this morning. I would recommend a gravel bike to have the most fun. Semi slicks work really good.
Short trail, fully paved, and well shaded. The main problem I had was it was a one way trail. There are parking lots at either end but no way to connect and not a fast way back to the other one. I take some points off from that because if you didn’t know you would end up 2 miles away from your car.
I just started walking this with my bf and my dog Before you know it, we went 3 miles! I will walk it again very soon. Cant wait until spring when it blooms!
We walked the trail again today. We did the entire trail with our dog. He had a great time.
I rode this trail for the first, but not last time today. It was a great ride, through hardwood forests, with deer and wild turkeys. I rode from Beaver Park in Mansfield which is 8 miles to the end at the river. There is parking at the park and a port-a-potty.
NOT FLAT! There are a lot of hills with, in my opinion, and equal amount of challenge and enjoyable. I have spent two different days on this trail and did slightly different paths. I did 20 miles the one day and 21 a few days later. What I like about it is in some ways if feels like a mountain bike trail without the rocks and roots. You get nature in the woods but you also get open fields. This will be my go to trail when I come to Atlanta.
Neat trail but as of September 30th 2022 most of it East beyond Metropolitan is unpaved rocky terrain.
So this is a neat trail but beware most of it is unpaved beyond Meteopolitan East towards Glenwood as of September 30th 2022
My wife and I rode the 10 miles out from Cedartowm -awesome trail-smooth and mostly shaded on a very hot Georgia day. We drank a lot of water on the ride only to find that there’s no restroom at Esom. Not good for a couple of 70+ bikers. The person at the Cedartown trailhead said that she didn’t know. Beware- still a great ride ¿
I rode the entire Silver Comet trail starting in Alabama on the Chief Ladgia Trail overnighting in Dallas. The Silver Comet Trail is completely paved, well marked and in nearly perfect condition. There are many road crossings but I never had an issue finding the trail and the few busier road crossings have traffic signals to make crossing safer.
There are a few important things to point out however. The large hill that parallels a landfill outside of Cedartown throws out the rail trail of the Silver Comet. It is very steep and riding from West to East there were two downhills where I had to dismount because I didn't feel safe going down a steep curving decline. Powder Springs and Rockmart have embraced the Silver Comet more as they have more signage directing trail users to local businesses, Cedartown hasn't done the same.
The scenery is gorgeous with great variation from streams, tunnels, a few trestles and plenty of trees providing much needed shade during the Labor Day Weekend heat. I encountered more trail users in the last 20 miles from Dallas to Smyrna than I did in the 80 previous miles from Alabama to Dallas. Almost all trail users were courteous and every driver I encountered at intersections yielded to cyclists.
I highly recommend contacting Rooted Trading Company in Powder Springs if you want to arrange shuttle service to anywhere on either the Silver Comet or Chief Ladgia Trails.
The concrete surface is in good condition. The path follows a stream, is in a narrow valley and probably floods frequently. Definitely avoid if raining. There were several spots with a layer of clay or sand from previous flooding. Very nice tree canopy, I enjoyed it.
