Rockdale River Trail

Over the River and thru the Woods

December, 2020 by lb33558

We loved this trail. Lots of HILLS and beautiful woods. Something new to experience at every turn. The Monastery was a lovely place to stop and call halfway. We started at the Lyon Rd trailhead and it was just about 20 miles round trip. Would do again for a good workout!!

Settles Bridge Park Trail

Nice groomed trail to river

December, 2020 by stephen7barr

This trail leads to a river side trail to the river access at the old Settles Bridge and back up north to a private subdivision. Nice river views, level, and secluded.

Camp Creek Greenway

The scenery and the set up is great for bike riding and nice walks with the wife. However, we haven't seen any deers or wild animals yet.

It was a wonderful feeling being able to ride on the Michelle Obama trail and ending up at the Barack Obama Elementary School.

Big Creek Greenway

ride with my bride

November, 2020 by biff.kinney

We rode the Big Creek Greenway today. Very well maintained and fun to ride. Lots of families getting some fresh air. It was good to be with my fellow Americans enjoying our freedom¿¿

Silver Comet Trail

Beautiful trail with fabulous fall foliage

November, 2020 by rbovine1

We rode 38 miles yesterday, and enjoyed the beautiful fall colors on this well maintained trail. Riding through the Brushy Mountain tunnel was amazing! Very little traffic and nice fall temperatures make this trail almost perfect for a November ride. Don't wait, this is the one you want to do. We rode from Rockmart in both directions and will be back for more!

Mountain-to-River Trail

Great time!

November, 2020 by lisatpark

We took a family outing for a virtual 5K along the trail. We picked it up at the Marietta Square and walked toward the mountain. Wide pathways and clearly marked. Check it out!

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.
