A great getaway from things for a couple of hours! The trail takes thru city streets, WG campus and the woods! Well maintained!
Had a wonderful wonderful time on this trail! Great trail for first time long distance bikers like myself. My husband and I will be back to do the Silver Comet Trail all the way through the Chief Ladiga 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!
It’s a great trail for Running, but it does need a restroom and a water fountain for when mother nature calls and you need to relieve yourself, I think that would help out a lot!
The Phoenix Trail in College Park doesn't carry many superlatives - it's not especially long and it's not especially scenic (it mostly passes through light industrial and hotel areas), but like a solid neighborhood bar or restaurant it's reliable, predictable, easy, and loved.
Actually, I think it does deserve a superlative - this might be the #1 trail for plane-watching. It's right next to Hartsfield-Jackson ATL Atlanta airport, the busiest in the world, so planes will drop down right over your head. At first this can be unnerving if it catches you by surprise, but is pretty fascinating once you're used to it. From the southern end of the trail, which dead ends at airport property, there's a great view of planes coming in to land on ATL's fifth runway.
I visit this trail at least once a month for biking and it's steadfast in being a great escape. I live in the Tri-Cities south of Atlanta (East Point, College Park, and Hapeville - put Outkast on your headphones), so I bike to the trail itself. Downtown College Park, with many small shops and restaurants, is just another mile on a slow and quiet road from the northern end of the trail. While I don't think there is any official parking for it, the Ruby Tuesday and Sleep Inn parking lot is adjacent to the trail and rarely crowded.
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.
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.
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.
Good ride / wheeling down a 10 ‘ wide trail area.
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.
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.
A great ride with lots of shade and beautiful scenery. The trail only has slight inclines, so no big hills to climb and overall the trail is well kept. However, there are a few places where tree roots have lifted the asphalt - these were marked once but are hard to see until you’re right up on them. It was a very nice, relaxing day on a fairly easy trail.
