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.

Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail

Bridgeport Walking Trail

August, 2021 by brucebeach

Trail is one mile out, and one mile back(you have to make the roundtrip). You walk up an incline from the railway station parking lot, about 75 yards or less, and the rest of the walk is flat. The first half thru the park is almost all in the shade and then the walk across the bridge/river is all in the sun. Very beautiful, peaceful, an easy stroll for older people, like my wife and I. If you find yourself in the Bridgeport, Alabama area, I would highly reccomend.

Silver Comet Trail

Great every day trail

July, 2021 by sinclairjr

Bout too many challenging hills but its length makes for a great work out. It’s mostly populated everyday by cyclists, walkers, and joggers. Has a few good views and even a public outdoor workout facility.

Silver Comet Trail

And exceptionally good ride.

July, 2021 by dmsgls101020


The Silver Comet is an excellent RT biking experience. There is one glitch to the trail. The trail ceases to be over the original railroad bead in Cedartown, Ga. From the Alabama / Georgia connect with Chief Ladiga trail to Cedartown, Ga the trail is over the original railroad bead, but it leaves in Cedartown and is somewhat hilly but paved. We started on it but turned back. We are in our 70s. From the west side of Cedartown to the end it is fully paved, concrete, and wide. You will love this trail. My first experience was around 18 years ago and rode it several times. It is exceptionally well kept up. Now in my 70s my wife and I rode this RT in November of 2020, and we look forward to riding it many more times.

Chief Ladiga Trail

A decent trail

July, 2021 by dmsgls101020

A decent trail
I rode this trail when it about 18 years ago and rode it last November 2020. For the most part, it is maintained. It would be nice if those maintaining the trail would give more attention to the roots. Don’t let the root comment stop you from riding this trail. CL was my first RT biking experience over 18 years ago. I look forward to riding it again soon, perhaps this year, 2021. It is a fully paved asphalt trail. There is plans to the extent it two more miles we were told in 2020 by another biker.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

Outstanding

July, 2021 by bwrenfroe

A beautiful greenway. Varied landscapes and a level, well-maintained path make this an outstanding ride. We drive from Muscle Shoals just to bike this trail.

Thoroughly Enjoyed

Clean and easy. Beautiful scenery. We will do this one again!

Silver Comet Trail

Biked the Silver Comet today

May, 2021 by cej0415

I was looking for a relatively flat trail to condition on my road bike. This was a well-maintained, paved trail. Fun to ride, with ample straightaways to crank it up. There were quite a few people biking, blading, skating, running or just enjoying nature, but it was a pleasurable ride. Higher recommend jumping on a trailhead and checking it out.

Silver Comet Trail

I ride this trail at least twice a week. I start on Floyd Rd. and my goal is to go to the end, Alabama line. The furthest I've gone is 15 miles out. I love this trail for bike riding.
