Man O' War Railroad Recreation Trail

Nice trail lots of possibilities

December, 2021 by lb33558

Just rode 5 miles! Lovely improvements made and a lot of opportunity!

Silver Comet Trail

Great trail, some places are better than others

November, 2021 by biguglymaniac

I have ridden the complete trail and just wanted to let people know where the best places are in my opinion. Riding from Rockmart up to the Brushy Mountain Tunnel is perhaps the best part of the trail from a beauty and interest standpoint, and being approximately 8 miles one way, it is a great afternoon jaunt with causal riders. Along the way you hit some nice waypoints to rest.

The trail origin location near Atlanta to Rambo trailhead is really nice and there is a lot of traffic out there. From Rambo to Rockmart is also very nice, but there are some unleashed pit bulls/ferral dogs to contend with from time to time. From Rockmart to Cedartown is not necessarily awesome due to it paralleling the highway, but it is not bad by any stretch. From Cedartown to Piedmont is rough leaving Cedartown near the landfill, but once you get through the hills, the trail to the Chief Ladiga/Silver Comet junction is pleasant as well.

Like most, there are a number of parking locations along the way and we usually tried to keep our segments to 10 miles one way when doing this trail.

Near the Atlanta region, expect a lot of walkers and plenty of riders going extremely fast/racing. We have seen some harsh wrecks when a very fast rider wanders off the concrete into the dirt and tries to get back on, leading to a yard sale crash with ribs and collar bone awesomeness. Be careful.

Great trail to unwind on

November, 2021 by biguglymaniac

This is a very pleasant trail to ride in an afternoon. We usually start near the lake and ride the whole trail as a loop. There are short relatively steep areas but nothing other than a downshift is needed. It goes through the university (UWG) which is fun, through the public school complex which is like a utopian school campus, through the sloughs and plenty of beautiful well marked trails. Taking the spur into the town brings you to a jewel of a square filled with nice places to eat and just gawk at. I have ridden bikes for nearly all my life and this, to me, is the best overall afternoon trail I have ever been on. The fact that it is a loop makes it so you can just go one way and unvaryingly end up back at your car without a care in the world.

Be careful when riding the long boardwalks on slick tires when they are wet. You can be down before you realize you aren't up.

Silver Comet Trail

silver comet trail

November, 2021 by lgibbs137

Trail in excellent condition until you get past rockmart. Then a lot of leaves and debris on the path. Also is a busy trail near Smyrna but thins out quickly when traveling west bound

Camp Creek Greenway

Great, except after rain

November, 2021 by donoltmann_tl

I bike this trail quite a bit. It is generally well maintained but can be a muddy mess after rain. Many portions of the pavement are below the surrounding grade and get mud flows that cover the path in spots.

It can be a bit difficult to bike during high pedestrian traffic times, so if you want to bike, pick your time to ride. A tough hill on one of the Killian Hill forks and on the other end at Lions Club Park, but the rest is river grade.

Nice place to grab a beer or taco at the "bus" in the park in the middle of the trail, too.

Rockdale River Trail

A fine, fine, trail

October, 2021 by gordorad

Great paved trail. It is actually three or more trails, as this trail interconnects to several others. Concrete almost the entire way, and very smooth. I rode this on a Friday afternoon in October and it was very quiet. Went all the way to the Monastery and back and then to the Visitors center and back. Highly recommended.

Man O' War Railroad Recreation Trail

Not complete.

October, 2021 by djracer201

10/16/2021 The trail runs through the town and behind Callaway Gardens, but abruptly stops at a fence before the old railroad crossing over the highway. It looks complete, but wondering why it's still blocked off. The other side at the country store I believe snakes down to the rail alignment, but it's blocked as well. It's good till that point. The county has a website stating the whole trail fr town to country store is open.

I LOVE the Silver Comet Trail! I ride on it about twice a week (usually from the beginning near Nickajack School), and it's just great. Keep it up!

Silver Comet Trail

Silver Comet Trail

I biked the Silver Comet Trail with my wife to the trail end at the GA/AL state line in 2016. The trail surface is paved and one of the best converted rail trails in the southeast. Very smooth.

I rode the trail's namesake Silver Comet train in the late 50's with my Mom and brother from Birmingham to Atlanta. Biking this trail brought back many memories of that train ride. Definitely worth a bike ride, especially during the week when it's less busy.

Arabia Mountain Trail

hidden gem

Enjoyed a day of beautiful biking. Definitely would recommend.

Silver Comet Trail

Well shaded, but very busy

September, 2021 by stvatandem

My wife and I rode from the Mavell Trailhead (MM 0) to the Florence Rd trailhead on a Saturday afternoon. We enjoyed the paved trail and the fact that it was shaded most of the way. Also, every road crossing in this zone had a user-activated traffic light. Some of the busier roads had bridges over them, or underpasses. Being a Saturday afternoon, it was very busy. I used my "dingy" bell frequently to alert pedestrians that we were approaching. all in all, it was a good ride. If I were to ride it again, I'd try to do it on a weekday.

Silver Comet Trail

Silver Comet disappointment

September, 2021 by bmyer

In early September 2021, I rode parts of the trail. On the first day, I rode from the Tara/Drummond Trailhead westward to the trail's intersection with Bethlehem Road and returned to the that same trailhead. Two days later, I rode from the trail's intersection with Bethlehem Road to Cedartown and returned to the Bethlehem Road intersection. The trailhead was well executed with ample parking and flush toilets. Other trailheads to the west offered less parking and portajohns. The concrete surface was not anywhere near as smooth as relatively new asphalt. I felt a constant jiggling through my bike which got to be annoying after a while going about 12 to 15 mph. Numerous areas of tree debris and leaves covered parts of the trail. Fortunately, it was a dry day, so the debris didn't contribute to any slipperiness. The route through Rockmart was not very well signed, necessitating a couple of u-turns. The surface through Rockmart had me thinking,"Why am I still on the trail when the adjacent city street looks to have a better surface?" West of Rockmart, the trail experience is less enjoyable as the surface is more uneven than east of town and openly parallels U.S.278. I returned to Rockmart heading east on U.S.278, a 4-lane 65 mph divided highway, which was a much better ride. The light to moderate traffic tolerated my presence as all of the drivers gave me the right lane with nary a honk. I always ride in bright-colored clothing, a red flashing rear light and a rear view mirror to make sure approaching traffic sees me. On the second day, traversing the trail westward to Cedartown from Bethlehem Road, the trail is even less enjoyable with the stench of adjacent landfill hanging in the air coupled with challenging hills into Cedartown. The adjacent nearly level railroad right-of-way drove home the point that this was not a rails-to-trails portion of the trail. The Cedartown depot was a nice stop with friendly staff. Again, I chose to return to my starting point to the east on U.S.278. The trail is an asset for the area, but in the areas I experienced, it is needs some TLC. If you're in the area, it would be worth checking out. I can't recommend traveling specifically to ride on the trail as I did. There are much better places to ride than between Rockmart and Cedartown on the Silver Comet Trail.
