I love a good outdoor run but the silver comet trail gives me the creeps. I’m always thinking someone is going to come out those woods but overall it’s a easy trail to run, walk, skate, and/or bike! It’s not my 1st choice but I’ll...More

We had a bit of trouble finding it, at least using the TripAdvisor map. Ultimately we just used Google Maps and searched for the trailhead. It led us to the Connector trail adjacent to a bike shop (Smyrna Bikes, I think). This was several miles...More

Well maintain paved running, walking, biking trail that goes on forever. Flat mostly. Great for those looking for a safe running trail to train for their upcoming long distant events like 1/2 marathon, marathon, triathlon, ironman etc...; If I need to train for hilly races,...More

There are several restaurants near the trail periodically. The Dallas, Hiram, and Rockmart, GA, areas have several easily accessible on a bike. Hotels - where it parallels 278 closely you may find them within a mile or two.

As far as the time of year I would say fall, but the trail is shaded with trees along the trail. So, you aren't in a lot of sunlight. If you want to know the best time to go when the really fast bikers are less likely to be... More
