The Silver Comet Trail goes from Smyrna to the Alabama state line and then continues as the Chief Ladiga Trail. Most of it is shaded and, since most of it runs on old railroad right of way, there are no step hills. Of course, no hills means that you do not get a full workout and a road race with... More

It is fully protected and isolated from automotive traffic. Most of the stretches we took were shaded. There were other bicyclists and hikers, but it wasn't crowded, even on the weekend. Plenty of parking at the entrance points. I love it; just wish it came closer to where I live.

This trail is paved the entire way and offers amazing scenic views. It is patrolled regularly by police and is safe for cyclists. There are unique small towns along the way and the locals are extremely friendly along the trail and welcoming and helpful to cyclists.

The trail is great for walkers, runners, bikers, skaters, etc. Pets allowed. There is a station with bathrooms/rest stops every several miles. Starting in Smyrna, miles 0-4 tend to be most crowded. Lots of people with kids and dogs, which tend to be unpredictable and a bit of an obstacle course. Miles 4-8 are less crowded and beyond 8 is... More

Found it difficult to find parking...so parked in a grocery store parking lot... Ended up finding a parking lot along the way dedicated to the trail. Was a great first run of 2015. Not too crowded, and people were mostly friendly.

Long trail with scenic views, covered bridges, biking, dogs, people... Go as far as you like or not at all. Stroll or jog it. Bike it or skate it. It's got something for everyone. City planners take note. People want to live where there are natural places and trails.

I enjoy walking on the Silver Comet Trail. It's peaceful and lined with lovely trees and flowering plants. The trail is not as nice when a lot of cyclists are riding on the trail. They are not always cordial. The trail is also relatively flat (which is why it's great for cycling).

Lengthy paved trail running for more than 50 miles with very scenic views. There are many entrances and exits west of Marietta, ga. Good for walking, jogging, inline skating and cycling. Often many people on the trail. When not many people consider safety risks if going solo
