Noonday Creek Trail

Paved Walking Trail

Easy walking trail and clearly marked....

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.

Silver Comet Trail

One of the best

April, 2021 by dmisner_tl

My wife & I rode from Dallas west to the big tunnel & back. Fabulous 23 mile ride. Beautiful scenery, well kept, plenty wide enough to ride side by side. We can’t wait to explore the other parts of the trail in the future.

South River Trail

Be Aware if parking at MLK Jr. High School

April, 2021 by nbpadula

We parked at MLK Jr. High School on a Sunday around noon, and after getting back to our car, the school had locked the entrance gates, preventing us from leaving the parking lot. Probably an accident, but keep this in mind when choosing where to park. Otherwise, it's a great trail!

Cricket Frog Trail

very nice trail!

Great place for families!

Peachtree Creek Greenway

What a GEM in Atlanta!

April, 2021 by bluesgrl02

Recently walked and biked along this beautiful paved path. It is very wide and allows walkers, bikes and families to easily navigate around each other without having to step to the side. There are benches, pet waste receptacles, & bike repair stations. One would almost never know they are not far from 2 major roadways and I believe it’s due to the lovely creek flowing beside the path. The only reason 4 stars instead of 5 is it need to be much longer!!

Eastside Trail (Covington)

Great trail with lots of incline changes.

April, 2021 by sdavis292

It was a fun and sometimes strenuous bike ride, but a clean and safe place to enjoy the outdoors with your family.

Cricket Frog Trail

Great leisurely ride!

April, 2021 by sdavis292

Very nice, clean and wide path. Perfect for a leisurely afternoon ride. Very few hills and inclines are minimal.

Arabia Mountain Trail

More than you might think

March, 2021 by chafields

The title is based on this trail connecting to so many others. You could ride this trail all day!
First, a public service : The StoneCrest Mall trail head is a bit tricky to find. You can park anywhere in the vast parking lot, but my gps pointed me to the bus stop outside the theater. I parked a bit south of there and hunted for the trail along Klondike Rd. Mistake! Park north of there and cross the ring road and you'll find the trail. Better yet, park at the Library or Vaughter's Farm, at least the first time. You can follow it North to learn how it ends.
That said, this trail has much to see - creeks, woods, meadows, a covered bridge, granite outcrops, a lake if you continue on the Panola park trail, and wildlife! I spotted deer and turkeys while riding. The trail is also in better shape than most.
For you e-bikers like me, note that this trail is hilly. It will consume more battery than the flat trails you're accustomed to if you ride former rail trails.

Big Creek Greenway

Terrific views and solid ride

March, 2021 by steve.lovig

Biked out of Bethelview Rd trail head; did both south and northbound sections on mostly sunny Sunday. Lots of people walking and biking but not overly crowded. Some challenging climbs and great views/stopping points to catch breath.

East Decatur Greenway

PATH Foundation's East Decatur Greenway Trail

February, 2021 by eem1958

East Decatur Greenway is a paved, short, 1.2 miles bicycle and pedestrian trail situated at the south-east boundary of the City of Decatur, in Metro Atlanta. You can access it from the Stone Mountain Trail, from Avondale Marta station or, if driving, you can park in the street of around de Marta facilities.

I upload a video of a trip in my bicycle to my YouTube Channel City Bike Jour.

I constantly use the East Decatur Greenway when bicycling to Oakhurst Village in Decatur or Kirkwood in Atlanta. The path includes a wonderful view to the eastern edge of the City of Decatur's Legacy Park, a heavily forested niche with a large pond that is home to a variety of species. A series of trails throughout the dense forest provides a unique opportunity for walking while experiencing nature inside the City of Decatur limits. The greenway has direct access to the park trails along the way. I access the trails from different entry points when I walk, instead of running bikes. Next to the lake is the Decatur's Kitchen Garden, a garden space for refugee and immigrant growers, led by Global Growers in collaboration with the City of Decatur. The garden can be observed from the trails

At the south, it ends in a green passive park at 890 Columbia Drive, the East Decatur Greenway project, a green community space where to enjoy nature. It was in the past a polluted lot of a closed gas station that was cleanup . You can park there to access the greenway.
