This is a great segment of the Silver Comet trail we rode from mile marker 0 in Smyrna to Pumpkinvine trestle on the other side of Rambo. The trail starts out very crowded then thins out at Power Springs park asphalt or concrete all the way about 6' wide a few road crossings but most have singles for safe crossing. Grade is very low I would rate moderate just of the milage nothing steep in this section. Trail is open for all types of activities bikes,skates,blades,boards,running ETC. Benches along the way to rest or just take in the surroundings. Will be back to do the rest of it. It would be nice if there was a shuttle service and if there is please post it here thanks.
