My husband and I made a weekend of this trail. We actually combined the Silver Comet Trail with the Chief Ladiga which is 94.5 miles. The Silver Comet Trail is in GA and is 61.2 miles and the Chief Ladiga trail is in AL and is 33 miles long. The both connect but were built at different times. The GA side is wider and a little nicer than the AL side. The GA side runs through several small towns and seems to be much more populated while the AL side runs through more remote areas and doesn't seem to be ridden as much. There are numerous sights with details concerning these trails, there's several trail heads, so you can ride for as far or as long as you'd like. We had our son home from college who came along and drove our vehicle for us in case we had an emergency and needed a quick pick up. We booked a couple of hotels and he would stay until check out and then proceed to the next hotel for check-in and wait on our call if needed. We had a place to shower at night, we went out to eat at good restaurants and had a great place to sleep and rest up for the next days ride! It worked out beautifully for us because we just wanted a nice long ride to enjoy leisurely, we're not avid road bikers, we actually ride mountain bikes leisurely, not on mountainous trails, we tried it once and I didn't like it, so we found rails to trails and I love them!!! I highly recommend you read up on the trails and GO FOR IT!!! This is a great place to go for your first long ride, I had never ridden more than 15 miles in one day, but was able to ride 94.5 in two days!!! My all time record!!
