Chief Ladiga Trail

Chief Ladiga Trail, Nov 2018, *Excellent*

Chief Ladiga Trail, Nov 2018, *Excellent*

I recently bicycled from Dallas, Ga, to Anniston, Ala. An excellent ride which I highly recommend, that could easily be broken into sections for a family outing or weekend 'de-stressor'. Thank you to those responsible for the development and maintenance of this path. Great job!

Comments;
Trail surface conditions; excellent. The path is cement in Georgia and asphalt in Alabama for the entire length. It is well drained, smooth, wide, and in generally excellent repair. A few areas tree roots have encroached and damaged the asphalt path, but this is not currently an issue.

Signage & markers; very good over all. Markers are located every mile, however a recommended improvement would be to add distance values to cities, towns, trailheads, etc. As for signage there is very little. Interpretive plaques, historical markers, place names, availability and direction of restroom\food\lodging\police\medical signs, etc. could be added at appropriate sites.

Trail maintenance; very good to excellent. The trail right of way is clear and wide, free of encroaching brush and bordered by well kept grass. Some vistas could be improved by clearing underbrush which would allow viewing of surrounding area. Especially when approaching some road crossings is this true. I noticed virtually no litter. Trestles and bridges, while currently usable and safe, are showing typical wear and age. Hopefully a schedule of maintenance exists for these.

Amenities; average. While benches and rest stops are conveniently located and not too far apart, I think toilets or port-a-potties are needed trailside at appropriate locations.

Great job to those who created this trail!

Markers are located every mile, however a recommended improvement would be to add distance values to\from cities, towns, trailheads as the existing markers only provide overall distance in miles, kilometers, and elevation. As for signage there is very little.

Mountain-to-River Trail

Not a lot of fun

November, 2018 by davidadamus724

I am new to the area, and started riding the trail at Kennesaw Mountain. Rode the trail all the way to the Confederate Cemetery in Marietta, and the trail winded very tightly and was very narrow/un-ridable at points. It was also hard to navigate-without the GPS in my phone I probably couldn't follow it.

Chief Ladiga Trail

A Walk to Remember

November, 2018 by dgcourte

A friend and I began our walk/hike at sunrise at the AL/GA state line. With 33 miles ahead of us an early start was necessary to allow enough time (10-11 hrs) to finish the trail before sunset that evening. The first several hours of the walk gave way to a landscape of beautiful autumn colors, bridges, and streams. Duggar Mtn also provided a beautiful backdrop for surrounding pastures, forests, and farmlands. As we continued on the path through the countryside the scenery began to change as the trail lead us through the small town of Piedmont where we were able to rest for a short while at the Eubanks Welcome Center. For the next several miles we continued to enjoy the beauty of the trail. Entering Jacksonville the trail lead us through the campus of Jacksonville State University and near a old train depot. With the sun beginning to set we finally made our way to the trail end in Weaver where friends and family greeted us with a celebratory bottle of champagne to commemorate a successful adventure.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Beautiful quiet run

October, 2018 by schadowmt

I run the northern part (most of it) out and back to the Riverpoint parking area.Very quiet and very few other people on the trail. Like running in the woods 8-). I will be back.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

great ride

October, 2018 by lambertkayla2015

Great ride, needs better signs. Great playgrounds piers and many public restrooms along the way. Started at Chickamauga dam to wheland foundry around 13 miles. Around downtown/ross’s landing confusing and busy but past that theres not many ppl and signs seem some better. Well worth the effort, will do again.

Silver Comet Trail

Silver Comet Trail since 1999!

September, 2018 by charlottefairchild

This is the main trail I go to. I wish there were signs for the Buddy System for safety along with wearing a bicycle helmet. I wrote a book about this trail after walking the whole trail in 2004 with friends. The first day I went alone and that convinced me to find friends. I love this trail.

Noonday Creek Trail

So far so good

September, 2018 by joetheplumber

I hope this trail system continues to grow as it provides easy access for metro Atlanta residents to get off the roads and get some exercise. I primarily use the Woodstock trials and really look forward to being able to visit my friends in Cobb county. We are waiting for that connector where the Woodstock section ends at 92. I hope the funds are there for a nice pedestrian/cycling bridge over 92. I miss my friends in Cobb. We haven't seen each other in so long. Please complete the trail. :-)

Chief Ladiga Trail

Beautiful round trip - great trail

August, 2018 by modiorne

Started at the Chief Ladiga trailhead at Michael Tucker Park in Weaver / Anniston. As someone else mentioned, plenty of parking and clean, open bathroom facilities. Every bit of this trail is well marked and very well maintained. The buckles or bumps in the trail were marked with white paint.
Took the recumbent trike since this was a paved trail. And, while I wasn't planning to ride all the way to the AL/GA border and the link with the Silver Comet, the trail, weather conditions, mix of shade and sun, I found myself just going... and going... One of the other bikers at the start told me it was a flat ride (relatively), he wasn't kidding. All the elevation changes are gradual, long sight lines, no blind curves, so made for as easy or fast as you like.
Trail was never crowded, bikes, a few hikers/walkers and a single skateboarder (near the college in Jacksonville). Saw flock of wild turkeys, some squirrels and one rabbit. Plenty of birds, dragonflies and butterflies
I hadn't planned on the full out and back, but with Piedmont right in the middle of the out and the back, was able to restock water as needed. Lunch along the trail was as peaceful as could be.
Anyone of any ability could ride as much or as little of this trail as they like. Multiple places along the trail to park, all the road crossings are clearly marked and only one listed as "caution". Plenty of shade, especially in morning or late afternoon. All the bridges are in excellent shape.
Quite a gem.

Big Creek Greenway

Too Dangerous To Cycle

August, 2018 by drtball2000

Boardwalks are simply too dangerous at any speed when cycling - I've seen walkers slip and fall as well - Cannot recommend this trail.

Cleveland/Bradley County Greenway

Sets the Standard for a Tennessee Greenway

July, 2018 by edmcanally

Wonderful example of uniting retail, residential and recreational facilities. The park is as functional as it is recreational and boasts tasteful public art and a good balance of sponsor recognition. Plenty of shelters, restrooms, and benches dot the trail. Trail lighting extends usefulness. However, the Creek is the main attraction. Undergrowth really should be cut away in many places to expose the massive rocks and noisy cascades. One of the best greenways I've experienced.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Very nice ride!

Excellent use of boardwalks to make this trail accessible. A most enjoyable outing!
