Great paved bike/run path
Oct 2020 • Friends
This is an excellent place to get out and ride, run, or walk. It’s paved and pretty flat. Use to be an old train track. Park over by Nickijak Elementary School in Smyrna. Shady and pretty nice path.

Took the trail to the covered bridge
Aug 2020
Since my husband and I like covered bridges and I found out you could take the trail to get to it, we were on it! But there are no signs. We were fortunate enough to run into another couple that told us were it was. So for those that would like the directions - see my photos 😊

Love the Silver Comet!

I jog here daily. It can get crowded, but I love how it’s mostly covered by trees with occasional breaks of sunlight.

Long trail great for walking and cycling
Feb 2020
We take the dog out every so often when the weather is nice and its a pretty walk...it goes for miles and miles so if you want a nice flat run for a long ways without much interruption this is a great option

Friends Ride the Silver Comet
Feb 2020 • Friends
The Silver Comet is a great trail to ride bikes. It’s a Rails-to-Trails path. We ranged in age from 50-60. The four of us enjoyed our time together even if the weather wasn’t the greatest. We didn’t see one ray of sunshine. We will ride it again soon with others promising to join us.

Most beautiful rail to trail
Feb 2020 • Couples
My wife and I are 60 years old. We ride our bikes 60-80 miles per week. We are currently traveling around the US in our motorhome to visit all of the national parks. As we travel we seek out areas to stay that have rails to trails bike paths nearby. We have spent the last 3 days exploring various segments of the silver comet trail. It is truly a beautiful trail with a nice mix of urban and rural areas along the 60 mile trail. Another cool feature is that the state of Alabama has added an additional 30 miles of trail which connects to the silver comet. If you are in to smooth flat paved trails this is a must do.

Great old rail trail for exploring
Dec 2019
This was an old railroad route thru the area, and you can hike or bike even on the old trestles. Well maintained trail.

Very nice, scenic trail. Well maintained, smooth & wide. Fairly easy riding with gentle inclines and plenty of resting areas. Decent signage. We rode on a Wednesday and met just a few others along the way. A great ride for all abilities and levels of cycling.
We're both in our 60s and easily managed to ride ~35 miles on this trail.

Fantastic walking, running, biking trail.
Nov 2019
My husband and I, frequently, walk the Silver Comet Trail. It is a beatiful trail that runs from West Cobb a ll of the way to the Alabama line, and I believe that Cox Enterprises just donated a substantial amount of money to extend the trail even further. We usually bring our dog and park at the Nickajack Road parking lot. If it is too busy, you can park on the weekends at the elementary school on Nickajack. The trail is well shaded by trees in the summer so it remains cool. Dogs are welcome, and there is always a large bowl of water at the Nickajack bathrooms for the dogs. The 4 miles of trail that we walk out from Nickajack is beautiful and goes over several bridges and through a cool tunnel. The trail is used frequently by bike riders so be aware if you are walking or running not to take up too much room on the path. Bike Riders are good about yelling on your left when passing, but keep an ear out.

The trail is awesome and weather was cool but perfect. Only feedback for out of towners, there are no hotel "on the path". Research carefully with Google maps and chose your best option. Only 3 miles is still a long way on bike along main roads after a day in the woods enjoying your bike
