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!

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.

Love riding on the Silver Trail great for me. Those of us who have to ride in wheelchairs, come on out to the trails and enjoy the fresh air. You will love it.

Rockdale River Trail

Hill, hills and more hills

September, 2020 by maritza.dacosta

Great trail! We enjoyed the trail. It has lots of never ending hills but it was a great workout. Trail is wide enough to share with walkers and runners but keep in mind that we didn’t see much of them.

Big Creek Greenway

Great Ride Monday thru Friday

September, 2020 by jdozier821

This trail is marvelous for nature lovers and serious riders...just be sure to be respectful of each other. Having a nature preserve in an urban setting like this is rare. What a gem! Biking on weekends is not recommended, even for the most casual of bikers, but it’s great Monday thru Friday! Simply too many kids on weekends (and that’s a good thing!).

Arabia Mountain Trail

Love This Trail

August, 2020 by kd9

I ride this entire trail twice a week (weather permitted) including the Panola Mountain Part --- I love every inch of this trail

Lower Roswell Trail

A good challenge

August, 2020 by coachclark1

If you start on the East end, it is a bit of a tough hill to climb out of the valley. Mostly uphill Westbound but some flat spots to gather yourself. Many restaurants await you at the West end. Going East it is mostly downhill, especially at the end. You can continue on East and South along the 7 mile Roswell Riverwalk Trail to add to your ride.

Roswell Riverwalk

casual riding trail

August, 2020 by vohenson

This is a good trail if you can go early in the morning before the strollers and the dog walkers get out! not enough room for side-by-side cycling with Friend. Pretty view over the water. We usually double it to give us a half decent workout.

South River Trail

Beautiful Trail and close to home!

August, 2020 by joymonique74

Since I live in South Dekalb, this trail has been a jewel. From the Panola Rd entrance point to the Michelle Obama Trail entrance point, this is a hidden jewel for my area. It’s lightly populated and I’ve rediscovered its beauty during the pandemic.
