Chastain Park Trail Reviews

This is a wonderful trail offering an escape from having to wait at traffic lights while out on a run. It is wide enough to not feel too crowded and circles around a very scenic golf course. Only complaint is that it is mainly concrete, but that is difficult to avoid inside the city perimeter.

This trail is beautiful! I give this only 3 stars because I pull my toddler in a bike trailer and there are a few very steep hills (granted, not very long) that I had to get off of my bike and push it and the trailer up. If I were walking, I wouldn't have thought twice about the hills. Also, there is a pretty long stretch where the path is along a street and the signage was not clear whether bikes needed to be on the street or stay on the path. I stayed on the path, mainly because I was pulling the trailer and the street was very busy and not bicycle-friendly) and it was too narrow for the trailer as I passed other people along it. I had to get off a couple of times and push my bike and trailer. If it had just been me on my bike, I would have had an easier time.
