Man O' War Railroad Recreation Trail Description

The Man O' War Railroad Recreation Trail carries both the name of the famous racehorse and that of the diesel passenger train that once traveled through Pine Mountain between Columbia and Atlanta.

The trail conveniently begins in downtown Pine Mountain, where trail users can find parking, bike parking and refreshments. It then travels along the converted railroad right-of-way sandwiched between US 27/ Main Street and Commerce Avenue. The trail goes through the town and out the southern end, peeling away from the road at about the mile mark, where it starts to become more shrouded with trees. The trail currently comes to an end behind the Mountain Creek Inn but further phases will see it expanded for at least another mile-and-a-half. Harris County had acquired 21 miles of unused railway for future conversion into trails.

Parking and Trail Access

There's plenty of street parking at the north end of the trail in downtown Pine Mountain (Commerce Avenue).

Short but fun

This trail is currently only about 3 miles (Aug 2020). It starts out in the town of Pine mountain, and ends up near Callaway Gardens. Pine Mountain has a few little shops, and some places to eat. The first mile or so is through town and is out in the open. The second and third mile are through a nice ‘tree tunnel’. We rode it in the afternoon and it was hot, but the tree covered section was much more comfortable. The asphalt ends but there is a dirt trail that continues for another mile or so. We did just the asphalt section and started and finished in Pine Mountain. Made a quick sixish mile out and back. Looking forward to the completion. As I understand it there plans to continue this for a 29 mile straight line rail to trail.
