Silver Comet Trail & Chief Ladiga Trail Comments
Trail Trip


I plan to ride the trail from end to end , I have ridden the Silver Comet Trail from begining to Rockmart and back in 1 day, no hils at all, I see there are hills from the other side of Rockmart to Cedartown, how hard are they? I will train before I make this ride to make but I want to make it in 12hrs. what do you think! P.S. I am not a professional rider.

the hills are tough-- short but steep-- but they're only in a 4-5 mile segment with some flat areas in between hills. since it's on the trail, it's easy to pull over and catch your breath if needed. i'm a recreational rider and made it fine (but not without sweat and cursing)!

TM...are you still planning to do this this year? Alone? I'm training for it as well. Let me know and I'll send contact info.

I rode the stretch from Rockmart to the Chief Ladiga trail head. I didn't think the Trashmore mt section was too terrible. I seem to remember it even had swtichbacks which made it easier. I seem to remember a huge downhill stretch after this that seemed to go on for a few miles. I have riden the entire trail and the Rockmart to Cedartown stretch to me is by far the best.

I plan to do it one-way - from Atlanta to Anniston. Is there any way to bring my bike back on any vehicle. I found that Amtrak in this route does not have the facility to carry the bike.
