My riding buddy and I will be riding the SCT and Chief Ladiga trails (round trip) in early May. We'll have an overnight stay in AL.

Neither of us have ridden it before and have no idea about motel/hotel accommodations or eating places in AL. Would appreciate any hints/help anyone can give.

I am also a little concerned about the hills (I'm 80 years old)....are there several "notable" hills on the trails? If so, where?

Would appreciate any "lessons learned" if you are willing to share them with us.

I have ridden the Chief Lagida/Silver Comet Trail several times. There are some steep hills between Cedartown and Rockmart. The steepest hill are from Cedartown to about 5 miles to the east. There is also a steep hill on the west side of Rockmart. A few of these hills are steep enough the many people have to walk their bikes up the hill. The rest of the trail is either flat or has gradual climbs and descents. The hotel that I have recently stayed at on the Alabama side is the Hampton Inn in Jacksonville. I had a good stay there in March 2014.

The Eubanks Welcome Center has a website that lists the motels on the Chief Ladiga.

I'd park in the middle and ride to one end and back on day one and then ride to the other end and back on day two. Nothing close to the trail in Alabama as far as I can tell. Rockmart Econolodge is not far from the trail and fairly centrally located and Rockmart is a better place to RON (remain over night) compared to Cedartown, IMHO.
