Of all of the trails I have ridden on across the country this is one of the best maintained and secure trails there is. Yes, secure as it is patrolled by several county sheriffs that it passes through. I have ridden this trail start to finish and back encountering the sheriff for the county almost every time. It's one of Georgia's best kept activity trails if not across the nation.
This trail has it's moments. There are parts where you are deep into the woods or so it seems. But other parts are right along busy streets with lots of noise. The trail could have been routed better if right of ways could have been gotten. Noonday Creek does run under the local airport runway so it is impractical to have the trail go there. But other parts of the trail that deviate away from Noonday take away from what could have been. Traffic is an issue on many parts of the trail and I watch carefully as the motorists don't care about cyclists. They look the other way as they turn right on red without stopping. Besides that once the trail passes the end of the airport where there is a nice playground constructed and goes off along the creek it has two sections that are real nice. The sections aren't that long but provide a nice quiet ride for a short while. I hope money and right of way becomes available soon in order to connect the south end with the north. Then when you can get away from the Barrett Parkway area it can be a nice trail.
If you want to put on some miles in West Cobb this is a good sidewalk trail. It connects to the Noonday Creek trail and keeps you off Barrett Pkwy. Trouble is the path runs right along Barrett and the traffic noise is great. It isn't kept clean other than by the usage and weather. Okay for adding 6 miles to your route.
Lucille Trail connects from downtown Powder Springs to Shipp Rd. The first 1/3 in Powder Springs is not well defined in a moderate-traffic area. Once on the paved trail just past the Post Office, Lucille intersects the Silver Comet, then follows a small creek up to Shipp road, parallel to Hwy. 278 towards Hiram. (On my ride, I took Shipp to New Macland back to the Silver Comet to complete the square.) Lucille is a short ride, and I passed very few people on Saturday mid-morning.
Bike riders are a bit aggressive. Sad to see some on foot walking off the pavement for the sake of a biker to keep their pace. Slow down.
There is not a single thing I can find wrong with this trail. Well maintained Smooth grounds Good tree coverage from sun Minor hills Don’t hesitate!!!!
Rolling hills, woods, water it’s all here but NOT for true bike rides or skates. Tree debris is on the pavement. Too narrow for bikes and the road swerves in and out. Perfect for nature walk.
Four of us rode from Halcyon to end of this section of the trail (intersection of McFarland and 19 up to Kelly Mill Rd). This section is mostly comprised of boardwalk that was so slippery in sections that it was hard to even stand on. Two of us had pretty bad falls. I would not recommend this section of the trail for bike riding.
My friend and I have enjoyed discovering the LH Trail this spring. We take 4 miles walks morning or afternoon. We’ve heard the gurgling of the creeks, have spotted deer on the path or nearby and be serenaded by many birds. The hills are gentle mostly allowing us to enjoy added cardio without pushing ourselves too much. There are benches along the trail, a playground for young children and exercise equipment too. It is an oasis in the midst of SW Atlanta. It is favorite for walkers, a few runners and neighborhood residents.
I’m in wheelchair for one and half mile roll of flat and up hills, but I made it for being 78 years old. My daughter helped me up most of the hills. The dog came along and enjoyed it, too. Was a good morning walk. Lots of rest and water stops.
We got short rides going north and south from Spring Street entrance. The trial was broken up with highway construction projects. I’m sure trail is beautiful but check first as heavy equipment was everywhere.
Nice path, but the hills near the intersections make it difficult to stop. Also it’s hard to gain traction on the slippery asphalt. Lots of water collected near the downtown portion.
