Three of us rode roundtrip from Piedmont, Alabama to Rockmart, Georgia on the Chief Ladiga (Alabama) / Silver Comet (Georgia) trail. Overall the trail is in very good condition. The asphalt (Alabama) and concrete (Georgia) pavement is about 6 ft to 8 ft wide, smooth with only rare bumps or misaligned joints, and mostly flat. The Alabama section has more... More

I rode this trail a few weeks ago an it was great. I rode from Paulding going west for @ 12 miles. This section was exactly what I like, mainly flat and really scenic. But when I say scenic, I don't mean water. Mainly just tree lined. Still I loved it. More water or ponds or creeks would have been... More

It's gets a little congested at the start of the trail. But just wait. We ride to Rockmart which was 40 miles away. There is an old tunnel about 34 miles in and some of the views off the bridges are just amazing. It's makes you think what it was like if you was a passenger on the train.

I recently started taking my grand children for bike rides on the Silver Comet Trail. Started doing 7 miles, then 10, and so forth. There are many great things about the trail. For one you can jump on the trail anywhere along the way. We have gotten on near Thornton Road, Hiram and Dallas for day trips. Bear in mind,... More

The Silver Comet trail is a great way to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. I ride this trail about 4 times a month. If you don't ride you can still walk or run the trail. It has a lot of beautiful sites along the trail as well as historical sites. A great way to get the family out and... More

I'm fairly new to biking. I've been looking for a great way to get exercise and this is it. I pull the kids on a cart and they love it too. Nice places to pull off and enjoy a snack and even a playground in Hiram.

We made it as far as Coots Lake trailhead the round trip was 36 miles. The section did have areas with more inclines than any of the other sections but... More

This is the first time we visit the trail, we rented bikes from the silver comet cycles and enjoyed the morning on our bikes. There were people walking , skating and biking. You could bike leisurely but there were serious bikers passing us by. Everybody respected the rules. will be back again.

We'd always heard this was a great place but had never tried it. Friends suggested we rent bikes at Silver Comet Cycles which is right on the trail - can't beat that as you get a first class bike with a helmet for $10/hr. So, off we went. The trail is about a car lane wide with a stripe down... More

We rode from Cedartown, Ga to Rockmart, GA about a 15 mile one way trip and returned. We have ridden in segments all of the Comet Trail from 0 to 61 mile markers and the Chief Ladig Trail which runs from the AL line to Anniston, AL. I mention this for two reasons. This leg was the hardest ride and... More
