Man O' War Railroad Recreation Trail

gorgeous ride

March, 2024 by bglade11

Wonderful trail. Steady incline to Pine Mountain. Plenty of restroom spots. Gorgeous scenery. Highly recommend this well paved trail for all bikes and all levels. About 33 miles round trip. Shorten as needed. Seems like an extra 4.5 miles will be added in a few years. Not very shaded in some parts, but we road this in spring, so maybe the trees will cover more area. A few road crossings that are very well marked, and one larger intersection. Free parking in Pine Mountain.

Ocmulgee Heritage Trail

Not ready for prime time currently

February, 2024 by sidresnick_tl

Feb '04: Started at the park and things went sour. Downed trees, homeless encampment and debris from highway construction made areas impassable. I gave up, returned to parking and took a hike in the opposite direction. The path along the river is bike-able and promising but before you go, check conditions and wait until the highway construction finishes and the area is cleaned up.

Piedmont Park

Beautiful and busy urban park

January, 2024 by jaleonard9

Piedmont Park is Atlanta’s Central Park, and NYC’s park’s designer Olmsted was involved in the creation. The park offers winding paths and trails, as well as skyline views over lakes and fields. For runners, it connects to the Beltlines going both north and south, and also Freedom Parkway and the Carter Center. It is without doubt one of the best running venues in the United States. The only downside is crowds and lots of events.

Rockdale River Trail

Very enjoyable!

December, 2023 by dpate

It was certainly hillier than I expected. I have ridden many trails I have found on TraiLink and this is on the top of my list of great trails.

Silver Comet Trail

Gorgeous area!

October, 2023 by kippmich

We rode from the Grady road trailhead to mm 19 and back. It was a 51 Mike round trip ride. The area is gorgeous and we were blessed with the fall colors! The trail is wide and smooth. The area between Cedartown and Rockmart is hilly, the rest is relatively flat. There is a section where the trail is near the highway, but other than that it’s in the woods or through cute little towns.

Silver Comet Trail

Best Trail Ever!

October, 2023 by cbd1961

My wife and I made a trip to Hiram for her birthday and road about 20 miles the first day then the 2nd day drove to Rockmart and rode about another 15 miles. We were very happy with this beautiful trail. It was very peaceful and very cool as we rode through Rockmart then on to the tunnel and back. Loved it and will be back.
