Hidden Gem

May, 2021 by rob.loew7

We walked on the Newbern side of this trail today it was very clean, quiet and peaceful. All while being shaded the whole time.

Great trail with lots of incline changes.

It was a fun and sometimes strenuous bike ride, but a clean and safe place to enjoy the outdoors with your family.

Cricket Frog Trail

Great leisurely ride!

April, 2021 by sdavis292

Very nice, clean and wide path. Perfect for a leisurely afternoon ride. Very few hills and inclines are minimal.

Ocmulgee Heritage Trail

unkempt and disjointed

September, 2020 by kholbent

I had high hopes for this one, because I thought we he mounds, music history and cemeteries would be interesting. It looks like the city made an effort at one time to invest in their greenways and parks, but the portion we rode was unkempt and unclear. Lots of construction and little revitalization. Maybe down the road they will get it all together and it will be a nice ride.

Great Trail

September, 2019 by dhisrael

This trail is nearly level compared to other trails that are reviewed. The Northern end at The Water Park is very well maintained and a great place for kids, birthday parties, and community functions. The Southern End is to be linked soon but at present that is a promise.
The Southern End extends from the Spring Street Bridge north a bit but certainly goes South from there to the Ocmulgee National Park. This lower part is new to me and truly a wonderful ride, hike, run or walk. It parallels the River and the Interstate 16 with many bridges over creeks and marshes. It is highly recommended.
From the Boat Ramp at the Spring Street Bride to the Great Temple Mound is about 3 miles. Many prefer to park at the Great Temple Mound and walk North as security is a bit better. But, don't get locked-in!

This is a great trail that will be even better once completed into Mansfield.

I take my daughter and I take my dog. It's peace full and paved. I feel safe. When starting near Covington library there's a lot to look at. Definitely a good family friendly trail.

Eastside Trail (Covington)

Covington Runners Treasure

June, 2015 by cfrogers50

The trail is a treasure for anyone looking for a safe, scenic & accessible run. With the growth of Newton County, the highways & biways are becoming much more of a challenge to recreational runners. The Eastside Trail has afforded many runners a place to run freely, enjoy a flat & hilly course while appreciating the clusters of trees that provide shade on the hottest days of summer. I especially appreciate the views of a bubbly brook after a hard rain, peeks of green fields, wild blackberries dotting the tree lane, & the occasional wild rabbit or black snake that ventures across the white cemented path. There's always people passing by but you never have the feeling of being crowded. As a runner, I truly appreciate this trail in my "backyard" so to speak. It is a worthy trail for training for races & is as hard or as comfortable as you want, depending on the distance you go & the side you start on. There's even benches along the way to rest & public access to bathrooms during the library & health department business hours. Great trail!!

Eastside Trail (Covington)

Quiet and Challenging

June, 2015 by molissa

I have enjoyed the trail about 3-4 days a week. I have started at Eastside High school more often than the library to give me the extra challenge of running up to the library. It is a very peaceful and quiet trail tucked away to seem as if I am in the mountains. I recommend the trail to friends all the time but try to run/walk with a buddy!

Eastside Trail (Covington)

Not everyone opposes trails.

April, 2015 by bill 2009

One of the reviewers commented that Covington was "notorious" for opposing trails. There are many in Covington and Newton County who support trails and have been involved in their planning and construction, whether sidewalk enhancements to improve access or specific trail projects such as Oxford (Turkey Creek, Turner Lake Park or Eastside. All of these are part of a long-term plan to interconnect the local communities with non-auto alternatives and have widespread support.

Like many areas, there are, unfortunately, a "notorious" few who have undisclosed personal agendas (and may represent some large landowners) who opposed a proposed rails to trails project. Please don't judge our City by these people.
