Silver Comet Trail

Beware of ATV's and Motorcycles

June, 2020 by capjapmc

I rode the trail on Sunday, May 31st. I encountered a couple of motorcycles and two atvs, driving at high rates of speed near the Dallas trailhead. Be careful out there.

Spring Road Trail

Good sidewalk type trail, with hazards

May, 2020 by tfrancell

The Spring Road Trail is another wide sidewalk type trail which requires the rider to ride alert. The trail is poorly marked and has few Bike crossing signs for the car traffic and few stop/yield signs for the bike traffic. It crosses a lot of commercial parking lot entries and exits and small roads, some of which are very rough, but the trail mostly stays on the north side of Spring Road, which is normally a busy, high speed road. It does have a few crosswalk buttons to stop cross traffic.

This trail starts at Atlanta road, where the Concord Road Trail ends and makes a turn across Spring Road and continues along Cumberland Blvd. where it connects with the Silver Comet Cumberland Connector Trail behind the Cobb County Transit bus station at the Cumberland Mall.

Also, if you continue straight along Spring Road, across Cumberland Blvd., you will arrive in about 1/4 of a mile at The Battery after crossing U.S. 41, a commercial/ office/residential development which contains Truist Park, the MLB stadium where the Atlanta Brave play.

Concord Road Trail

Good trail but with some hazards

May, 2020 by tfrancell

This trail starts on a difficult uphill at a parking lot just off the SIlver Comet Trail. The trail is well paved and has a lot of small hills and requires the rider to stay alert, as it is basically a wide sidewalk which crosses a lot of driveways and the entry/exits of a lot of subdivisions. Most crossings are not well marked with bike crossing signs for the car traffic or stop/yield signs for the bike traffic. The trail also has several utility poles in the middle of the trail to watch out for.

This trail crosses back and forth over Concord Road several times at traffic light regulated crosswalks, where it is best to wait for the light and stay in the crosswalk, as Concord Road normally a very busy, high speed road. Last time I rode this trail in 2018, most crosswalks did not have buttons to trigger the lights. Be especially careful of Southbound traffic turning left off of Concord Road onto North Cooper Lake Road. This V intersection is especially dangerous to bike traffic. The trail does connect directly to another trail that will take you most of the way to Truist Park, where the Atlanta Braves now play.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Chief Ladiag Trail

April, 2020 by don_williamson

A great ride to the Georgia State Line. Great scenery along the way and about 3 miles from the Georgia State line is a nice little campground along a creek with bathhouse, campsites with tables and a lot of friendly folks. We started at Piedmont trailhead the first day and spent the night at the campground. The Chief Ladiaga campground is small but well kept. The bathhouse is clean and has basic tent sites. After breakfast we woke up and road to the Georgia state line and back to Piedmont the second day.
The trail does go through a few small towns with bike friendly restaurants. The trail has clean rest stops to refill water bottles and take a nap if needed. The only negative is the asphalt trail is somewhat rough in places. Tree roots have made unexpected ripples in the pavement and give you a surprise bump in the road on several segments of the trial. The closer to the state line you get the rougher it gets. Some bike trail angels have painted white lines onto of the roots to prevent accidents and it helps.
Other than a root little surprise every now and then it is still a well kept scenic route with bridges, farms and views to remember for a good days ride. Have fun

Chief Ladiga Trail

great trail but watch out between mile markers 18.5 to 16. There are some bumps that will loosen your molars, not to mention damage your bicycle. Wish someone would grind them down.

Silver Comet Trail

I've walked a small portion of the Silver Comet for one week; Can't wait to ride my bike!

Absolutely wonderful!!!! Rain AND Shine!

Big Creek Greenway

Awesome Trail!!

December, 2019 by joemcpa

Really enjoy leisurely biking the trail. It can be very busy on the weekend, and the avid cyclist take some great risks in passing walkers and other slower cyclists. Most do not announce they are approaching, and many “thread the needle” in trying to pass.

Lower Roswell Trail

awesome

November, 2019 by jeffballard63

Easy to use paths and connects seamlessly with Roswell River trail!

Chief Ladiga Trail

Bumps everywhere

October, 2019 by bwoods0

Beautiful trail, just not maintained from Piedmont's area of responsibility and Cleburne county's area of responsibility. Safe to use at lower speeds on road bikes, or best if mountain bikes. Sever bumps from roots, will toss you from the cycle. Large cracks in Cleburne county that tires on road bikes can get caught in. Be safe, ride slow, be observant. Still a great ride.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Great Trail

October, 2019 by goosegear

Rode 40 miles from Piedmont back toward Jacksonville , then from the state line to Cedartown, GA. Love this trail had lunch in Piedmont at Shells downtown, wow!!!! Highly recommend. Only open Wednesday thru Saturday

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Trail closed 10/7/2019 for 3 weeks at Rowing Center

October, 2019 by cheryl77

We parked at Chickamauga Dam Riverpark and got on the trail heading towards downtown Chattanooga. The trail is well maintained and utilized by a variety of residents, all of whom were respectful and mannered. However, when we got to the Rowing Center we discovered the trail had closed two days ago for a three week period. Just FYI as we were not aware. There were other people surprised at the trail closing as well when we were there.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Great Trail

September, 2019 by jasperpjm

We biked from the southern terminus to the boat launch, about 10 miles. Real nice, very scenic , lots of sculptures along the way. Trail along river north of there was closed. We probably could have and should have worked our way around the closed section but we did not.
Lots of variety. Some old abandoned buildings from a previous time and some new ones from today.
Markings were poor in some places.
