Most of the trail is shaded and runs 2-4% grade.
Zoom into the map and more detail shows up.
The start in Smyrna is a busy commercial area.
It then blends into suburban areas but is still secluded.
Next is Hiram (good Bike Shop), then Dallas. West of Dallas is wilderness till Rockmart.
Rockmart to Cedartown is country with a 8% grade for about a mile. West of Cedartown is country and wilderness till Piedmont. Then you head to Jacksonville (collage town), mostly parallels to a road off and on. to Anniston. There are a few bathrooms and water stops along the way. Get water at Hiram, Dallas, Rockmart, Cedartown, Jacksonville and Anniston.
