It was a wonderful feeling being able to ride on the Michelle Obama trail and ending up at the Barack Obama Elementary School.

Big Creek Greenway

ride with my bride

November, 2020 by biff.kinney

We rode the Big Creek Greenway today. Very well maintained and fun to ride. Lots of families getting some fresh air. It was good to be with my fellow Americans enjoying our freedom¿¿

Silver Comet Trail

Beautiful trail with fabulous fall foliage

November, 2020 by rbovine1

We rode 38 miles yesterday, and enjoyed the beautiful fall colors on this well maintained trail. Riding through the Brushy Mountain tunnel was amazing! Very little traffic and nice fall temperatures make this trail almost perfect for a November ride. Don't wait, this is the one you want to do. We rode from Rockmart in both directions and will be back for more!

Mountain-to-River Trail

Great time!

November, 2020 by lisatpark

We took a family outing for a virtual 5K along the trail. We picked it up at the Marietta Square and walked toward the mountain. Wide pathways and clearly marked. Check it out!

Westside Trail (Atlanta Beltline)

Great trail

October, 2020 by tcurtishicks

I love the Westside trail! I live in midtown so it's a fun ride over on my gravel or road bike. You can hit some nice gravel trials over near the the grant park portion of the trial. Off the Westside trial are some great breweries where you can stop and get an Emergency drinking beer and a walkin Taco!! The only con; currently you do have to go down some congested roads to get back to the trial where it's not finished yet. It will be nice when the trial is complete.

one with nature

A great getaway from things for a couple of hours! The trail takes thru city streets, WG campus and the woods! Well maintained!

Silver Comet Trail

Beautiful trail, well maintained. We rode during the week and it wasn't very busy. Shady, clean (they were blowing off leaves while we rode), mostly flat, some small hills near alabama state line, fun!

Proctor Creek Greenway

Needs a restroom and water fountain

October, 2020 by bryantkirkland1983

It’s a great trail for Running, but it does need a restroom and a water fountain for when mother nature calls and you need to relieve yourself, I think that would help out a lot!

Phoenix Trail

Neighborhood Restaurant of a Trail

October, 2020 by jgonzalski

The Phoenix Trail in College Park doesn't carry many superlatives - it's not especially long and it's not especially scenic (it mostly passes through light industrial and hotel areas), but like a solid neighborhood bar or restaurant it's reliable, predictable, easy, and loved.

Actually, I think it does deserve a superlative - this might be the #1 trail for plane-watching. It's right next to Hartsfield-Jackson ATL Atlanta airport, the busiest in the world, so planes will drop down right over your head. At first this can be unnerving if it catches you by surprise, but is pretty fascinating once you're used to it. From the southern end of the trail, which dead ends at airport property, there's a great view of planes coming in to land on ATL's fifth runway.

I visit this trail at least once a month for biking and it's steadfast in being a great escape. I live in the Tri-Cities south of Atlanta (East Point, College Park, and Hapeville - put Outkast on your headphones), so I bike to the trail itself. Downtown College Park, with many small shops and restaurants, is just another mile on a slow and quiet road from the northern end of the trail. While I don't think there is any official parking for it, the Ruby Tuesday and Sleep Inn parking lot is adjacent to the trail and rarely crowded.

Ivy Creek Greenway

Nice trail

September, 2020 by cubajax

Started at the Environmental Center and went all the way to Georgia Mall. This is a nice trail, especially the long wooden bridge and the water falls. Stopped for a few minutes to hear the fall and was very relaxing. I did the paved trail and when tried to get on the dirt trail near the mall of GA had to turn around because it became muddy and was all wet. Next time.
Great trail.!

Big Creek Greenway

Excellent Trail

September, 2020 by realrainmaker

I cycled the southern section (Roswell/Alpharetta). It is wonderful, peaceful and somewhat secluded (at least when raining).

There are bathrooms, bike aid stops, call boxes, a few trash cans and benches along the pathway. Some markings indicate direction, but it is helpful to print a map for longer journeys.

The boardwalk can be slippery, but they are short patches on this portion of the trail. The northern portion may be slicker since more of it is boardwalk.

I would recommend this trail. There are plenty of deer and quiet riding. Rain wasn't an issue, though some parts of the trail had overflow from the creek. Still, it is easily in my top five trails in the metro/outer Atlanta area.

South River Trail

Michelle Obama/South River Trail

September, 2020 by joymonique74

This is an awesome jewel in South Dekalb County. Easy access to the Michelle Obama trail from the GSU-Decatur campus lot. It’s sparsely populated, but interesting wildlife such as deer, squirrels, and rabbits. My mom and I walk this trail during the weekday and it’s very peaceful. Highly recommend if you want a peaceful walk and or run.
