Silver Comet Trail

wheelchair user

September, 2020 by patriciahart0291

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.

Silver Comet Trail

One of the Best in the Land

August, 2020 by c92vette

Of all of the trails I have ridden on across the country this is one of the best maintained and secure trails there is. Yes, secure as it is patrolled by several county sheriffs that it passes through. I have ridden this trail start to finish and back encountering the sheriff for the county almost every time. It's one of Georgia's best kept activity trails if not across the nation.

Noonday Creek Trail

Only Ridden the Southern Part

August, 2020 by c92vette

This trail has it's moments. There are parts where you are deep into the woods or so it seems. But other parts are right along busy streets with lots of noise. The trail could have been routed better if right of ways could have been gotten. Noonday Creek does run under the local airport runway so it is impractical to have the trail go there. But other parts of the trail that deviate away from Noonday take away from what could have been. Traffic is an issue on many parts of the trail and I watch carefully as the motorists don't care about cyclists. They look the other way as they turn right on red without stopping. Besides that once the trail passes the end of the airport where there is a nice playground constructed and goes off along the creek it has two sections that are real nice. The sections aren't that long but provide a nice quiet ride for a short while. I hope money and right of way becomes available soon in order to connect the south end with the north. Then when you can get away from the Barrett Parkway area it can be a nice trail.

West Cobb Trail

Okay for staying out of traffic

August, 2020 by c92vette

If you want to put on some miles in West Cobb this is a good sidewalk trail. It connects to the Noonday Creek trail and keeps you off Barrett Pkwy. Trouble is the path runs right along Barrett and the traffic noise is great. It isn't kept clean other than by the usage and weather. Okay for adding 6 miles to your route.

Silver Comet Trail

Nice Trail, but...

July, 2020 by stockmia

Bike riders are a bit aggressive. Sad to see some on foot walking off the pavement for the sake of a biker to keep their pace. Slow down.

Big Creek Greenway
