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.
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.
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.
I haven’t rode a bike in 15 years I got a bike to get daily exercise and my first day out was on this trail a lot of steep inclines that I had to walk my bike up if your a novice avoid this trail until you get your legs up under you
raised boardwalk offers beautiful views of forest, creek, swamp. lots of birds and turtles.
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
Woods, parks, bridges, streams, etc. on this part of the beltline. Great for a casual stroll with the fam.
Less busy than the east side trail, which makes exercise and social distancing possible. Excited watching the development of businesses and neighborhoods.
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.
There are enough long flat stretches that can be walked back and forth as well as small and big hills for a more challenging walk. There are restrooms at the Tennis Center as well as those marked. Most folks pick up after their pets.
Absolutely wonderful!!!! Rain AND Shine!
We live 3-4 blocks from the park where the trail starts but it feels like its our backyard. Love the amenity for hikes, bike rides, creek walks, and commuting to Emory University car-free on trails! Pleasant blend of boardwalk, bridges, concrete path. Crosses the tracks in an overhead trestle, has spurs to Three Forks Trail in Melton Park, spurs to Oak Grove via Spring Valley and leads otherwise from Medlock Park to Mason Mill Park. Parks and parks and parks!
