With several trailheads to start from and public bathrooms, this is my favorite, easy hiking trail in Smyrna. Convenient to surrounding neighborhoods, bicycles can also be rented. Beautiful foliage, paving, & lots of traffic make this trail as safe as it is beautiful.

Fun biking trail for adults and kids alike. It is always busy on the weekends but very peaceful during the week. It was once an old railroad track that has been paved and renovated as a bike trail. It seems to go forever!

My walks on the Silver Comet Trail have been ok. However, I must say the bikes and dogs annoy me. Most bikers are pleasant and pass at a distance, but others are just too close. The same thing with dogs - some pass too close....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

So sorry. It was the Country Hearth Inn in Cedartown. Didn't want to send you looking for something that wasn't there.
