Silver Comet Trail

This is the best multipurpose trail I've had the pleasure of using.

Silver Comet Trail

Gorgeous area!

October, 2023 by kippmich

We rode from the Grady road trailhead to mm 19 and back. It was a 51 Mike round trip ride. The area is gorgeous and we were blessed with the fall colors! The trail is wide and smooth. The area between Cedartown and Rockmart is hilly, the rest is relatively flat. There is a section where the trail is near the highway, but other than that it’s in the woods or through cute little towns.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Great ride with some bumpy parts

October, 2023 by kippmich

We rode from the start of the trail to Germania Springs park (mm 23.2) and back. We stopped in the cute town of Piedmont for a snack at Elevated Grounds and then sat on the swing under the gazebo by the history center for a few minutes. The trail is beautiful through the forest, then goes through a rural area where there are lots of cotton fields. It’s a bit bumpy from tree roots that have pushed up the trail. Most spots have been ground down, but it’s still a butt burner going over those spots. Nice ride with not a lot of street crossings.

Silver Comet Trail

Best Trail Ever!

October, 2023 by cbd1961

My wife and I made a trip to Hiram for her birthday and road about 20 miles the first day then the 2nd day drove to Rockmart and rode about another 15 miles. We were very happy with this beautiful trail. It was very peaceful and very cool as we rode through Rockmart then on to the tunnel and back. Loved it and will be back.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Piedmont to Georgia Line

September, 2023 by garybrogers

We started out our Saturday morning having our trikes tuned at Rocket City Trikes located just off the Chief Ladiga trail in Piedmont, Al. After the tune up rode over a couple blocks an at lunch at the “Elevated Grounds” coffee shop, excellent sandwiches!! Then we were on the trail headed toward Georgia, this about a 14 mile ride one way we meet other bikers an trikers, good conversation an fun! Return trip to Piedmont was great, it is a slight downhill grade most of the way! And of course we topped of the trip with a second stop at Elevated Grounds for Ice Cream!! Was a Great Day on the trail!!

Civitan Park Trail

Concrete path for walking and bike riding that is 5 or 6 feet wide. We really enjoyed it. Met some friendly people and animals. The fallen soldier memorial was impressive.

Viking Trail

Great ride.

June, 2023 by mewhitfield_tl

Great ride . We loved the rolling "hills" of the trail and trailheads. This sounds crazy but glad to have port-a-potties along the way for us old folks.(70 plus). Getting back in to riding again and this was a perfect 7 mile ride.

Silver Comet Trail

A wonderful trail!

May, 2023 by digitalpubs

Rode May 4 & 5th, 2023. A fabulous trail! So well maintained! Surrounded by trees on most of the trail. First 20 to 30 miles from Smyrna are probably the easiest.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Flat trail

April, 2023 by gary.heissler_tl

Started off at the trail head at Anniston and rode north past Piedmont to the 9.5 mile marker. Trail was pretty flat with some bumps along the way. The scenery was good.

Sunset Drive Trail

Nice trail along the lake

March, 2023 by paulfanfoot

Very nice trail along the lake. Easy to find and wide enough for bikes going both directions. Some goose poop to dodge, but other than that very nice scenery.

Chief Ladiga Trail

Beautiful views and good trail

February, 2023 by k.bridges

One of our favorites! We’ve started at Anniston, Piedmont and Jacksonville State depending on how much time and how far we want to ride. Bathroom stops along the way and beautiful views. Roots under areas of the path but usually easy to spot & avoid. Mike markers are clearly marked and mostly wide open riding!

Chief Ladiga Trail

Nice and flat

November, 2022 by basteacher123

Husband and I came to ride this trail. We went from the trail head in Anniston. We managed to avoid any rain some lite drizzle but much colder than expected. Rode to mile maker 20. On way back to Anniston we we chased by a white looked like pit bull mix. Food stops along the way would be nice but understandable that there aren’t any for the remote locations. Will most definitely come back!
