Recent Trail Reviews

Lower Roswell Trail

awesome

November, 2019 by jeffballard63

Easy to use paths and connects seamlessly with Roswell River trail!

Akers Mill Trail

Akers Mill great for connections

October, 2019 by hokiespark

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.

Rockdale River Trail

Three-Trail System is a Roller Coaster!

October, 2019 by rogerkimp

The Rockdale River Trail is seamlessly connected with the Arabia Mountain Trail and a portion of the South River Trail, forming a network of ~25 miles of trails (I see various measures). This entire system is hard surface (mostly concrete with a few asphalt stretches). Even though significant portions of the trail are wooded/shaded, the trail itself is usually quite clear of debris (well maintained)... unless you are riding very soon after stormy or windy days).

When we ride near dawn or dusk, we often see wildlife along the trails (deer, rabbits, snakes, turkeys). The stretch of the Rockdale River trail between Union Church Road and S.R. 138 that runs above/along the South River and is probably my favorite portion of the entire connected system, as you listen for the water cascading over the rocks down below.

Rockdale County recently (~September 2019) constructed bathrooms at the trailheads located off Union Church Road (at Daniels Bridge Road intersection) and off S.R. 138 (at the East Fairview Road intersection)… the latter of which has full plumbing (running water + sewer).

As other comments on this site indicate, this trail system has lots of hills and curves (this is a roller coaster, not a "rails to trails" like the Silver Comet!). So, if you are a beginner, expect to cover a shorter distance than you normally would. And remember, along with uphills come downhills, so make sure your brakes are in working order!

Carrollton GreenBelt

Loved it

October, 2019 by goosegear

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.

Settles Bridge Park Trail

cambanta

September, 2019 by cambanta

The wooded trails are absolutely beautiful but be careful if walking along the Chattahoochee River. Copperhead Snakes and Raccoons have been spotted.

Yellow River Trail

Short and relaxing

September, 2019 by sue.samuel

Nice, short walk through the woods and along the river. Perfect for a quick and quiet walk with the dog.

Ocmulgee Heritage Trail

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!

Big Creek Greenway

Nice trail

August, 2019 by fred.holzheiser

Don't miss this trail. I use it often both on bicycle and walking with dogs. Beautiful and clean!
Yes sometimes there are slippery spots on the boardwalk sections but don't all nice trails have this at some point. My suggestion is to keep your eyes open.

South Peachtree Creek Trail

We bought in this neighborhood because of trail!

August, 2019 by satellitefarm_tl

We bought our house back in 2008, because of this trail. Well that’s partially true¿¿ It’s been great to see all the growth and extensions on this trail. Back in 2008 the trail only went as far as the stone bridge before the railroad tracks. Now it’s a full blown trail that is simply beautiful! They did an outstanding job on this trail. They’ll even left the ruins of a water treatment village there! It’s got hiking trails that veer off and take you into the woods. It’s a treasure for this neighborhood!

Big Creek Greenway

Big Creek Greenway - Roswell to Alpharetta

August, 2019 by guya

A very nice well maintained trail from Old Alabama Road to Marconi - approx 8 miles one way. The trail is nearly 100% in the woods along Big Creek. All concrete and nice width. We were riding on Sat 10 - 11:30 - there was fair amount of traffic, but not overly so. The trail crosses under all major roads / no at grade crossings.
The only negative is the signage is lacking / a little hard to tell what trail branches go to where. But, now that we have ridden the trail, we are more likely not to make the several wrong turns we made today.
I actually enjoyed this trail better than SC, only because it was less crowded.
