This is a thirty mile round trip scenic bike ride on the Silver Comet Trail. The Silver Comet is a paved rails-to-trail bike trail from Smyrna to the Alabama line.
We will start at the Rambo Trailhead near Dallas, ride to Rockmart have breakfast at Waffle House in Rockmart, and then ride back.
Here is our trip:
Early on we will cross the Pumpkinvine Trestle, which is 750 feet long and 126 feet high.
Then for the next eight miles, we pass thru Paulding Forest, which is basically a hilly pine woods. The hills will not affect us however, since we will be on the old rail bed, with all its cuts and fills.
Before we emerge from the forest, we go thru the 800 foot long Brushy Mountain Tunnel - definitely stop to take your picture here!
Then it's mostly open pasture till we get to Rockmart. We will pass Coot's Lake on the way also.
HELMET REQUIRED TO BE WORN - NO HELMET, NO BIKE RIDE
