Was planning on this being an overnight bike trip, as the kids have never done more than a 10 mile ride. We packed overnight gear, etc. Unfortunately, the forecast for the 2nd day turned sour and the kids decided to push through and finish the ride in one day! they did great - largely on the original rail/paved trail. Towards Rockmart and Cedar Town, it diverted through some downtown areas and some of the uphills were rough..but by and a large a great trail! Both kids left with a great deal more confidence than when they started!
Scenic and long. Great trail to rack up milieage. Pavement is excellent and we'll maintained. Plenty of rest stops for the weary. Go get it.
We didn't complete the trail but it was perfect for the kids (10 and 7). It was dirt and gravel with some hills but not too challenging.
This trail has saved my life. literally, the chief means to controlling diabetes. The beauty of the land, the great places you pass through, the folks you meet, the welcome centers and facilities along the way are outstanding, with the one in Piedmont giving out free snacks to bikers and hikers. I can't say enough about the entire 95 miles of trails, from Anniston, AL to the Atlanta, GA area. Be conscious of the bumps caused by tree roots, they can throw you at speed above 15 MPH (trail designated maximum speed). Don't forget to sound off when passing others on the trail, it is just being a good neighbor.
Wife and I have been riding the Noonday trail for several years and enjoy all the expansions being made.
We live very close to Noonday park and look forward to the day the trail comes to the park and it becomes a trail head for the Noonday bike trail as it is already a established park with restrooms etc lots of parking too.
We are hopeful that a walking track might also be installed at Noonday park to really bring it all together for everyone.
The park is huge.
Ride the noonday trail and enjoy it along with us.
What a fantastic trail! Alot of planning and investment went into this trail. Great mix of water and forest and parks and some residential. Close to city but mostly away from noise and traffic. We completed the whole circle and enjoy a two hour Sunday afternoon outing. We have biked in 30 states and this was one of the most enjoyable city greenbelts. Congratulations to the city and those involved with this trail!
Very nice for walking but pavement seems narrow if bikers are present as they move pretty quickly, many times not warning walkers especially with small children of their presence.
Love dogs too but.. leashes over 5 ft should be discouraged as they totally block the path causing concerns for trail enthusiasts .
(Path currently ends at 92 not yet joining the Noonday trail south and then west to Kennesaw Mountain) That will be a really great ride when it is complete.
Some parts of this trail are real nice but parts run along busy Barrett Pky and Cobb Pky (Hwy 41). Why did they not actually follow Noonday Creek in this area? It would have been safer and nicer. Otherwise this is a nice trail for at least half of it. Going north from Town Center is the nicest part of the trail. Watch all the intersections between Town Center and Kennesaw Mtn as drivers don't pay attention to pedestrians or cyclists. Once you turn up the hill at Old 41 Hwy it is a good climb and if you want you can continue to the top of Kennesaw Mtn. If you follow Barrett Pky instead of going up Old 41 the trail continues for several miles.
The trail is poorly marked in several places. Barrett Parkway and old 41 being one. Several dangerous intersections and strip mall entrances make this more of an urban adventure than I would like on the Kennesaw side. The Northern section towards Woodstock should be better once (if) completed.
My husband and I drove down from Cleveland TN after reading about the Heritage Park Trail online. The pictures online made it very appealing. However, the directions to find the park and walking trails were zero. Our GPS system brought us to a left turn in the town and we were left on her own to find the park We found a boat ramp and a small playground that some children were playing on I asked a lady there if she could tell me where the trails were. She thought if we took the walkway around where the children were playing it would put us on the trail and take us down next to the Atlanta Braves park. We ended up at what look like a sewer treatment plant. There were no markings on the trail to say go this way or go that way. We could see a beautiful historic area across the river but wasn't sure how to get there. On our return back after about 2 miles in the sun and passing a sewage treatment plant we decided to take a bridge across to the other side where we found a very pleasant walking trail. If you advertise your trail, you should give some definite directions for the trail and there should be signs along the way identifying how many miles and what's up ahead. Maps identifying all of the historical buildings would even be nice. Unfortunately we were on a time crunch and regret we didn't get to see the best part of this trail. Not likely to come back.
Ran the whole length of the trail. It is well marked and a nice run, but most of it is exposed without any shade cover, along major roads through an industrial district. As a bonus, the trail ends at Kennesaw Mountain, so you can continue your walk/run up to the top of the mountain.
No water along the trail, so bring some money to buy drinks at a store or restaurant along the way.
Bathrooms, etc. are at the Kennesaw Mountain park (and of trail).
I use the trail weekly and do enjoy it. However, it is dangerous to walk by the BIG TREE between Bells Ferry and the mall as it drops dead limbs on the trail, which have nearly struck me in the past.
