I rode the trail on Sunday, May 31st. I encountered a couple of motorcycles and two atvs, driving at high rates of speed near the Dallas trailhead. Be careful out there.
The Spring Road Trail is another wide sidewalk type trail which requires the rider to ride alert. The trail is poorly marked and has few Bike crossing signs for the car traffic and few stop/yield signs for the bike traffic. It crosses a lot of commercial parking lot entries and exits and small roads, some of which are very rough, but the trail mostly stays on the north side of Spring Road, which is normally a busy, high speed road. It does have a few crosswalk buttons to stop cross traffic.
This trail starts at Atlanta road, where the Concord Road Trail ends and makes a turn across Spring Road and continues along Cumberland Blvd. where it connects with the Silver Comet Cumberland Connector Trail behind the Cobb County Transit bus station at the Cumberland Mall.
Also, if you continue straight along Spring Road, across Cumberland Blvd., you will arrive in about 1/4 of a mile at The Battery after crossing U.S. 41, a commercial/ office/residential development which contains Truist Park, the MLB stadium where the Atlanta Brave play.
This trail starts on a difficult uphill at a parking lot just off the SIlver Comet Trail. The trail is well paved and has a lot of small hills and requires the rider to stay alert, as it is basically a wide sidewalk which crosses a lot of driveways and the entry/exits of a lot of subdivisions. Most crossings are not well marked with bike crossing signs for the car traffic or stop/yield signs for the bike traffic. The trail also has several utility poles in the middle of the trail to watch out for.
This trail crosses back and forth over Concord Road several times at traffic light regulated crosswalks, where it is best to wait for the light and stay in the crosswalk, as Concord Road normally a very busy, high speed road. Last time I rode this trail in 2018, most crosswalks did not have buttons to trigger the lights. Be especially careful of Southbound traffic turning left off of Concord Road onto North Cooper Lake Road. This V intersection is especially dangerous to bike traffic. The trail does connect directly to another trail that will take you most of the way to Truist Park, where the Atlanta Braves now play.
A great ride to the Georgia State Line. Great scenery along the way and about 3 miles from the Georgia State line is a nice little campground along a creek with bathhouse, campsites with tables and a lot of friendly folks. We started at Piedmont trailhead the first day and spent the night at the campground. The Chief Ladiaga campground is small but well kept. The bathhouse is clean and has basic tent sites. After breakfast we woke up and road to the Georgia state line and back to Piedmont the second day.
The trail does go through a few small towns with bike friendly restaurants. The trail has clean rest stops to refill water bottles and take a nap if needed. The only negative is the asphalt trail is somewhat rough in places. Tree roots have made unexpected ripples in the pavement and give you a surprise bump in the road on several segments of the trial. The closer to the state line you get the rougher it gets. Some bike trail angels have painted white lines onto of the roots to prevent accidents and it helps.
Other than a root little surprise every now and then it is still a well kept scenic route with bridges, farms and views to remember for a good days ride. Have fun
great trail but watch out between mile markers 18.5 to 16. There are some bumps that will loosen your molars, not to mention damage your bicycle. Wish someone would grind them down.
Absolutely wonderful!!!! Rain AND Shine!
Easy to use paths and connects seamlessly with Roswell River trail!
Beautiful trail, just not maintained from Piedmont's area of responsibility and Cleburne county's area of responsibility. Safe to use at lower speeds on road bikes, or best if mountain bikes. Sever bumps from roots, will toss you from the cycle. Large cracks in Cleburne county that tires on road bikes can get caught in. Be safe, ride slow, be observant. Still a great ride.
Overall this trail is best for connections. The north side is a great bike/walk trail where you can freely bike/walk at least a few feet removed from the street and it’s aesthetically nice even for a trail that runs between an interstate and a service road. As a connection to the trails along the Chattahoochee it’s excellent but wouldnt really stand on its own other than being a nice side street trail. The south is a glorified sidewalk that connects the Bob Callan to Akers Mill shopping center, Cumberland Mall, etc.
My wife and I did this simple loop around the city at an avg of 11mph. One of the most pleasant enjoyable rides Ive ever had. We have Trek ebikes but also have regular bikes. We rode ebikes this time. Shouldnt be any issue for anyone. Awesome flow through many different types of areas.
Rode 40 miles from Piedmont back toward Jacksonville , then from the state line to Cedartown, GA. Love this trail had lunch in Piedmont at Shells downtown, wow!!!! Highly recommend. Only open Wednesday thru Saturday
Good for walking and leisure riding, cruddy for any kind of actual workout.
