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

The Silver Comet Trail is a wonderful place to go for a walk, take your kids for a bike ride or gear up and take long bike ride with your serious biking friends. Close into Atlanta it is crowded on weekends and the long distance rider needs to use caution and slow down. Once you get 10 miles out the... More

Rode just past mile marker 15 with my spouse. We are not the avid road cyclists one sees but we do like to bike in our “comfort” bikes. The course is deceptively flat. What I mean is that we were able to traverse the 15 miles one way because I kept telling myself and my wife that it was essentially... More

This is a great outing for bicycling: no cars and pleasant scenery. Unfortunately, the Moms (walking) sometimes forget to go single file and create problems.This is a great outing and I wish Atlanta had more of this type of activity!

It was easy to rent bicycles and helmets from Silver Comet Cycles right on the trail at Mile 4.2 in Mableton, GA. You can rent by the hour or the day. The people were nice and the trail was lovely. There were lots of trees/shade.
