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

I've been in Atlanta for 9 years now, and i still believe the Silver Comet trail is one of the best places you can go for a great run on any day. It's relatively flat, and it's a nice getaway from busy streets of metro Atlanta. There are certain sections that will get really busy on a nice spring and... More

I just completed a one day cycling trip on the trail between mile marker 0 in Smyrna and the end of the trail on the GA/AL state border (approx. 62.5 miles). Considering the weather, there were not many people on the trail beyond the first few Cobb county trailheads where I saw runners and joggers. The trail in Cobb county... More

This quiet, non-motorized, paved trail is for walkers, hikers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, horses, dog walkers, and is also wheelchair accessible.

Can't beat the value since it's free. Great route for biking (also walking, running). No motorized vehicles allowed. Since it's a former railroad bed there are no steep grades. All public road crossings have traffic lights. You can get on and off the trail wherever you want to. Geocachers can find caches along the way. Trails off the main route... More

Walk as far as you want... ask a relative to pick you up. Better yet, get on your bike. Nice trail and setting in Smyrna. Goes all the way to Rocksmart, quite a walk. Its safe and fun. People are very friendly.

The silver comet is a nice paved trail for a relaxed run or bike ride. It is well maintained especially considering it is surrounded by trees for the most part. It can get crowded with people who don't respect the trail etiquette and clog up really wide path. Really the only other issue is there are very few places to... More
