The trail is mostly flat, but goes through some really nice areas. There is only one truly remote section, which is right before the Alabama Border. But now that it's joined the Chief Ladiga Trail you can get in almost 100 miles. Wonderful place for family recreation.

At a friend's recommendation, I rented a bike at the Silver Comet Depot Bicycles and set out for a 20-mile ride on the protected trail. The trail stretches out to Alabama. It's covered with trees, mile markers are plentiful, not overly crowded even though it's shared with runners and walkers. As it turns out, I was feeling quite energetic and... More

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.
