Join us at the Floyd Road Trailhead for a fun ride along the silver comet trail. It has plenty of parking, restrooms and is nearby to a cycle shop and gas station!

From the silver comet trail website:

"The Silver Comet Trail is located 13 miles northwest of Atlanta, Georgia. It's free of charge, and travels west through Cobb, Paulding, and Polk counties. This quiet, non-motorized, paved trail is for walkers, hikers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, horses, dog walkers, and is wheelchair accessible.

The Silver Comet Trail is 61.5 miles long, and starts at the Mavell Road Trailheadin Smyrna, Georgia. It ends at the Georgia/Alabama state line, near Cedartown and The Esom Hill Trailhead." comet-cobb-county/silver-comet-floyd.shtml
