Silver Comet Trail & Chief Ladiga Trail Comments
Hole in Trail around mile marker 38 in Rockmart

There is a water meter embedded in the trail around mile marker 39 in front of Haney Farm and Ranch, Inc. The water meter is recessed in the trail surface resulting in a sharp concrete lip surrounding the meter that is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches deep. Last weekend I hit this thing and got not one but two flat tires as a result of hitting it! I went back a week later and looked at it and took pictures and noted that the top of the hole is worn away and jagged from so many people hitting it. As a result, I am sure I am not the first to hit this hole and perhaps get flat tires. I think this needs a metal plate installed over the top. Does anyone know the best resource to forward this recommendation to, including pictures? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Tom

I'm sure you've already checked, but maybe the Haney Farm & Ranch or Haney Powersports can point you in the right direction. Rockmart? Polk? Sorry you had to TOFTT.

The hole is still there as of 10/27/2017, it's painted orange so it's a little visible but still could take someone out. For the record it's on the right side headed towards Atlanta (East). Thanks for making this post since I was looking out for it after reading this before leaving.
