McQueen's Island Trail

Queensway Historic trail, near Tybee Island.

May, 2017 by kenyaplant

Needs repair- a couple of bridges are out- one passable but other not passable if high tide. Still not bad small gravel path- lined by palm trees that provide shade. Part of path wiped out by storm and some parts too sandy to ride through. No facilities.

Arabia Mountain Trail

Car Break-Ins

May, 2017 by able88

After a pleasant day of biking and upon our return to parking at the Browns Mill Trailhead, we found that our vehicle back window had been smashed, along with another trail patron's car. Had to get repaired this week. Be careful! They need a security patrol and cameras at this site.

Silver Comet Trail

Loved this Trail!

May, 2017 by gahanosh

First time on the Comet at the recommendation of a friend. He wasn't kidding - this is a great trail. Well maintained with beautiful scenery. Road the leg from the Georgia State line to Cedartown. Wow just wow. Will do again soon.

Arabia Mountain Trail

A lot of hills!

April, 2017 by denpep

This trail is about a 3 hour drive for us so we decided to give it a try. Its paved and very nice but if you are not use to hills be prepared, there are a lot of them. If you don't like hills I would not recommend this trail. For those that said it wasn't enough of a work out they must be out of their minds. We were headed to the Rockdale River Trail and met a local man
riding the trail and he warned us about the "monster" hill that went straight down. We were very thankful for that information.

Athens - North Oconee River Greenway

Fun, Fun, Fun!

April, 2017 by ddicer

The Dudley Park end is good for families, but the Sandy Creek end is too much fun.

Athens - North Oconee River Greenway

just learning

April, 2017 by ddicer

Easy to get to. Plenty of parking (across from Chicopee building). The Sandy Creek end was flooded from the recent rains, so I will have to go back and try again.

Keswick Park Extension Trail

A Nice Start

March, 2017 by irisknapp

For it being just over a half mile it's a nice little trail. It was done very well. It's not much use for a serious walker, jogger or bicyclist but it's nice for a casual walk or to go on with kids.
The online map doesn't show where to park. We parked by Five Guys in the Walmart shopping center but there is also parking on the Keswick Park side by the adult softball field.
I hope there are plans for an extension. I drive to the Roswell/Alpharetta Greenway & Silver Comet on a weekly basis. Would love to have something closer to home. I LOVE Chamblee but we sorely lack a good trail.

Tallulah Falls Rail-Trail

Great for a grandpa and young grandson!

March, 2017 by wxjeff

This was a wonderful easy hike alternative for me and my 6 year old grandson. We were sheltered from this windy day by the nature of the trail cutting through the hill where the railroad used to be. Lots to see and explore and my grandson thoroughly enjoyed the suspension bridge.

Asphalt trail is in great shape and there were a few signs describing wildlife that might be seen as well as a speaker-sign on the far side of the bridge that described its makeup and construction.

Parking is limited at the south end (maybe 7-8 spots?) Not too bad of a walk from the other parking areas on this side of the highway.

Carrollton GreenBelt

Beautiful ride

February, 2017 by irongrizzly556

I enjoyed this trail so much. I road 10miles with the ease. The trail is beautiful.

South River Trail

The beauty of Nature

February, 2017 by chestershaven

My husband and I were visiting our godchild and she took me to the park for a walk. She says it is one of her favorites places to walk and reflect. I see why. To say it is beautiful is an understatement. We saw deer, foot prints of other wild life, sandy shoals and waterfalls. The next time we come we are bringing our bicycles. Awesome!

Jekyll Island Trail

A must ride for the beginner or the seasoned rider

February, 2017 by racencason

The scenery is by far one of our favorites, the ride takes you from the marsh, to historic buildings, blending to the beach and ocean views, along the way you will encounter shopping and resturants, golf courses, the water park and nature. Simply a relaxing ride with mostly wide paths to alow traffic in both directions. No matter the season you will fall in love with this treasure of the coast. From the fast paced rider to the laid back cruiser, Jekyll offers something for all. We take our 6 year old nephew with us on some rides and he loves it even on his smaller bike. The trails are a very nice ride for our cruisers and our friends ride road bikes and they also found it a pleasing ride. There has been alot of improvements over the last year to the riding paths. I don't see many being disappointed after their experience here. Come for the day, stay for the week, or discover your home away from home.

Phoenix Trail

Great for family stroll or bike ride

January, 2017 by ron_goodwyn

My son and I hit the trail on a Sunday morning. We parked along side the road near the Marriott hotel closed to the Marta stop. Some parts of the trail are very secluded but noticed that College Park police were along the trail.
