Silver Comet Trail

Excellent, Smooth, and Flat Ride

July, 2024 by anthony.johns.6

We started at the Martin Trailhead just west of Cedartown and rode to the state line. It was a good, wide path that I was comfortable really getting up to speed on the straightaways because visibility was very high in most areas and the trail was mostly clear of major debris despite being almost entirely shaded. My son who was riding as a passenger did throw a small limb off the trail when we made a stop on the return trip, but I don't recall it being there when we came through the first time, so it had likely fallen or been placed on the trail within the last 2 hours.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Nice, Mostly Flat Ride

July, 2024 by anthony.johns.6

Went about 7 miles into Alabama from the Georgia line on our ride. It was a good, fairly smooth and flat ride. Compared to the Georgia side of the ride, however, there was a bit less shade and the path was significantly more narrow. It was hardly problematic in general, but it did have a larger impact when people were riding in pairs or passing relative to the wider Silver Comet portion.

Ridge Ferry Trail

A Nice, Casual Little Loop

July, 2024 by anthony.johns.6

This is a nice little loop now with the opening of the bridge near the baseball stadium. The only real point of issue on my ride was that in the park area on the east side of the river roots were pushing up the pavement to make for a pretty bumpy stretch down that bit of the trail. Once through that though, it was mostly smooth riding.

I do hope for more spurs and expansions to allow for additional access to stores and shops so that it can be used for much more than just joyrides.

Reeves Creek Trail

Perfect Little Trail !

June, 2024 by 7gk5dswgpt

I’ve lived less than 15 mins away from this trail for quite a while and today was my first time. It was exactly what I needed and it opened up into a park that was small and quaint . It’s very woody for the most part but it does open up on several parts of the trial. It’s great for walking and or running.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Alabama the Beautiful

June, 2024 by laurieccarter

This was our first long/all day ride. The trail really was beautiful, well maintained and paved the whole way. We entered at mile 1 and rode to the GA/AL line. The trail beyond Piedmont, which is the last populated area you will pass, is fairly remote, and at a very, very slight incline. The return is much easier! There are a couple picnic tables at the state line but no bathrooms. We saw deer and turkey crossing the trail.

Peachtree Creek Greenway

Carrollton GreenBelt

The trail was great, every now and then there are big hills and sharp curves. But it's best to do it when it's dry outside because there are lots of board walks.

Piedmont Park

Beautiful and busy urban park

January, 2024 by jaleonard9

Piedmont Park is Atlanta’s Central Park, and NYC’s park’s designer Olmsted was involved in the creation. The park offers winding paths and trails, as well as skyline views over lakes and fields. For runners, it connects to the Beltlines going both north and south, and also Freedom Parkway and the Carter Center. It is without doubt one of the best running venues in the United States. The only downside is crowds and lots of events.

PATH400 Greenway Trail

It may not be long but it's a nice challenge and not crowded with lots of ops to stop and enjoy lunch or grab a beer.

Noonday Creek Trail

My husband and I walk/run the first part of the trail (from start to the TC mall) 3-4 times per week. Its so beautiful and peaceful. We've met so many "friends" whom we love to say "good morning" to and who brighten our day, everyday.
