Biked the stretch from the library downtown out to the golf courses at Cherokee and back. Nice stretch with 2 shaded bench rest stops with water. A few road crossing with decent sight lines. Saw a dozen folks working out and 2 folks transporting themselves via bike to/from work. Nice to see it used, miles marked, and two trailheads.
It's hot in South Georgia during August, so ride this trail in the morning. There is a good bit of shade but about 1 and 1/2 miles are out in the open. Best place to park is at the Lower Meigs Road trail head. It's a nice parking lot, but no restrooms. You can go north to downtown or south to the airport from here.
We started at the downtown end and road south to the airport. The portion from downtown to around the West View Cemetery really needs some attention,i.e. garbage strewn along the trail, broken glass and grass over-growing the edges. After that rough part, the trail was very nice and is used extensively by walkers, runners and bikers. Crossing US-319, a major four-lane highway, was all right, if you pay attention and use the crosswalk which has signals. The first mile after crossing US-319 is out in the open with a number of driveways and road crossings, then it slides back into the trees until you reach the airport. Shady and peaceful along this part.
Overall a good ride, (we did the entire 15 miles out and back.)
This was a well maintained, safe, and scenic trail. It is paved with concrete; wide enough for plenty of people. The day I walked, it was only me. There are also dirt trails coming off the concrete path. They are safe, easy to walk. Although the concrete trail is about 2.4 miles, I made a 7.4 mile walk by taking some of the extra dirt paths, the loop, and walking back to my starting point (instead of getting picked up at the end of the trail.)
There are places to sit, pic nic, and fish.
If I could add half a star, I'd give 4 1/2 stars for this event. The trail is very nice, much of it wide enough for three abreast. The "trail proper" is attractive, intermittently shaded, and well off the road. As mentioned in the reviews, connecting trail areas are somewhat less appealing. Also, I agree that trail signage could be improved, as well as adding numerical addresses for trail heads.
The apres ride aspect of Moultrie's square? 5 stars! Lunch at Three Crazy Bakers (wonderful!) and interesting boutique shopping around the picturesque courthouse square. Pick up BBQ to go on the way out of town at The Barbeque Pit. Last stop before Valdosta? Peaches in Barney!
Great for jogging, walking, or biking. Very nice!
Walked this trail for the first time today, and was pleasantly surprised at how well this trail is maintained and how clean and well kept it is. We plan to go walk this trail again in the morning. We seen lots of wildlife and even walked up on a beautiful Doe! We also saw a cute little Oak snake who let us take a picture of him, then he scurried off on his way. Definitely will be planning many more enjoyable walks on this trail. :-)
This trail is very pretty, my family and I enjoyed our Christmas walk out here. It is kept very clean and has some gorgeous views. Definitely a new favorite go-to trail.
I lived in this town my first year out of college and rode my bike out in the country. This trail was not here then . I was surprised at how ruff some parts were in my velomobile but the starts and stops were many in town. After you get out of town it was a nice ride. Only saw one other rider in the whole time on the trail.
We really enjoyed riding on this trail. We went on a Saturday and parked at the airport. Rode all the way to the end and back for a 15 mile ride.
The trail was nice and had some very nice scenery.
The part I liked the least was riding beside the busy hwy, and having to cross the hwy at a red light.
We used the pedestrian crossing, waited for the walk signal- about halfway across the road, it turned to "No walk" without any countdown, or warning! Luckily, the cars waited- but that was pretty scary to me!
The next time we ride the trail, I may park downtown and skip the Highway side of the ride.
enjoyed the walk,comfortable walked it 3 times.
The best place to park is the Tom "Babe" White Linear Park at Lower Meigs Rd and Main St. There is a map of the whole trail there and you can either go north a couple of miles to downtown Moultrie or south about 5 miles to the end near the airport. The farthest south couple of miles are along the main bypass highway and not scenic. The rest is very nice and nearly flat (being S. Georgia). You can see the old railroad mile markers and there are now bike trail mile markers with zero at Lower Meigs Rd.
"Once we found the trail, it was wonderful! However, there are no signs directing bicyclists to any of the trailheads, and there are no maps to indicate how many miles go either way. "
