Silver Comet Trail

Tara Dummond to Coot's Lake

July, 2017 by ledoux245

Roughly a 26-mile round trip, this is a beautiful stretch of the Silver Comet trail. It is pretty flat most of the way, all though I joked with my wife that it seemed like it was uphill both ways. It practically always seemed like we were going slightly uphill, but I guess that was an illusion, since clearly we couldn't have been going uphill both ways! There is a lot of shade and the ride is interesting as you ride through forests, over a high bridge, and through a couple of tunnels. One thing to know: the beach at Coot's Lake is no longer open to the public. We got caught in an unexpected heavy thunderstorm and sought shelter there until the storm passed, but were rebuffed by the owner. We were two veterans on July 4th simply seeking shelter from the rain for a few minutes. Sad. Anyway, stay away from there - they don't want you there. Otherwise, the trip was great.

Silver Comet Trail

Ride in the Woods - Cedartown to Borden Springs

June, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Esom Hill, close to the GA/AL border. We rode the Comet east to Cedartown mi53 (see my reviews of other sections of Comet), then turned around and rode west to Borden Springs. 27mi roundtrip. Trail is concrete in GA, then turns to asphalt in AL, but both well maintained. It runs through the woods almost the whole way. Shaded, but no scenery but trees. No facilities either. It is a rail-trail, and you think its flat, but its not. Esom Hill is the crest, and its down hill both ways from there - about 100ft elevation change on both sides. But its gradual, so its very doable. But you will notice the difference one direction over the other. Will return to do final west section.

Arabia Mountain Trail

Car Break-Ins

May, 2017 by able88

After a pleasant day of biking and upon our return to parking at the Browns Mill Trailhead, we found that our vehicle back window had been smashed, along with another trail patron's car. Had to get repaired this week. Be careful! They need a security patrol and cameras at this site.

Silver Comet Trail

Loved this Trail!

May, 2017 by gahanosh

First time on the Comet at the recommendation of a friend. He wasn't kidding - this is a great trail. Well maintained with beautiful scenery. Road the leg from the Georgia State line to Cedartown. Wow just wow. Will do again soon.

Arabia Mountain Trail

A lot of hills!

April, 2017 by denpep

This trail is about a 3 hour drive for us so we decided to give it a try. Its paved and very nice but if you are not use to hills be prepared, there are a lot of them. If you don't like hills I would not recommend this trail. For those that said it wasn't enough of a work out they must be out of their minds. We were headed to the Rockdale River Trail and met a local man
riding the trail and he warned us about the "monster" hill that went straight down. We were very thankful for that information.

Keswick Park Extension Trail

A Nice Start

March, 2017 by irisknapp

For it being just over a half mile it's a nice little trail. It was done very well. It's not much use for a serious walker, jogger or bicyclist but it's nice for a casual walk or to go on with kids.
The online map doesn't show where to park. We parked by Five Guys in the Walmart shopping center but there is also parking on the Keswick Park side by the adult softball field.
I hope there are plans for an extension. I drive to the Roswell/Alpharetta Greenway & Silver Comet on a weekly basis. Would love to have something closer to home. I LOVE Chamblee but we sorely lack a good trail.

South River Trail

The beauty of Nature

February, 2017 by chestershaven

My husband and I were visiting our godchild and she took me to the park for a walk. She says it is one of her favorites places to walk and reflect. I see why. To say it is beautiful is an understatement. We saw deer, foot prints of other wild life, sandy shoals and waterfalls. The next time we come we are bringing our bicycles. Awesome!

Phoenix Trail

Great for family stroll or bike ride

January, 2017 by ron_goodwyn

My son and I hit the trail on a Sunday morning. We parked along side the road near the Marriott hotel closed to the Marta stop. Some parts of the trail are very secluded but noticed that College Park police were along the trail.

Silver Comet Trail

A TALE OF TWO TRAILS - GA

January, 2017 by koldtoess

For a long, late fall weekend, my wife and I based camped at the Chief Ladiga Trail Campground. The campground is located in the Talladega N.F. approx. 7 miles from the GA state line. It is on the trial with plenty of acreage, a running creek, clean showers and a great staff (Terry & his dog Honey)! Hopping onto the trail riding east, we went through some of the most scenic RtTs we have ever rode. You will ride slightly uphill through beautiful forest and creeks until you hit the state line, the photo stop. You will continue with the same scenery, but on concrete, until you “dog leg” at the outskirts/industrial area of Cedartown. After the loop and city street maze, you can visit Cedartown via the unique S. College St. bridge or S. Main St. at the depot. The depot is a great spot to break and has a small museum and bathrooms. There are a couple of unique places to lunch but since it was Sunday most of the place were close so we ate some awesome Sunday-after-church fried chicken at Bojangles. While in town, ride round to courthouse to see the local sports statues. These parts of the CL & SC trails were great but bring plenty of fluids and be careful at all the crossings. After returning the same way, we had a great night sleep and I hit the CL trial westbound.

Silver Comet Trail

200 miler

November, 2016 by jdoyle123

My wife and I did the full Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Trail. Beautiful trail. We embarked on our 3 day adventure on our road bikes and a backpacks. 14.4 hrs and 196.8 miles. Our itinerary was Atlanta-Piedmont-Rockmart-Atlanta.
Recommend this trail. Keep Riding!!!!

Reeves Creek Trail

Superb white concrete surface, winds through woods and meadows

October, 2016 by jsaxton425

It's a somewhat hidden gem. My wife and I walk on this trail at least weekly. Very serene, and other walkers are almost always pleasant, sweet folks. We've never felt threatened by any seedy human elements. The City of Stockbridge, Ga., does a pretty good job of maintaining it, moreso if you phone their stretched-thin Parks department with a request, such as, please remove a fallen tree, etc. People say that parking at the Memorial Park (106 Jennings Way, Stockbridge) end of the trail is more secure than the Flippen Road parking lot at the other end... but we've done both and never had a problem at either. We've seen foxes, turkeys, Canadian snow geese, ducks, possums, armadillos, hawks, a big 20" wide tortoise and a jillion squirrels and turkey vultures, and there's a number of wildflowers to delight. Oddly, no snakes or gators so far, even though some of the surrounding area is the bog of Reeves Creek. Every season has its charm on this diverse trail.

Stone Mountain Trail

Not Much of a Trail

October, 2016 by lancedr_tl

This barely qualifies as a bike trail. Cuts through parking lots, transitions into busy urban streets, and is not well maintained. It's a shame, because it's the closest trail to where I live.
