Like the Silver Comet Trail, the Wildhorse Trail is designed to accommodate bicyclists, skaters and walkers, hikers, joggers and persons with disabilities. It does not have facilities for horses, however. The trail is open from dawn to dusk except after rainstorms. Along the path of the Wildhorse Trail is the largest red maple tree in Georgia, known as a "State Champion Tree." The Trail also features a wetlands observation tower just south of Hopkins Road and a rest area near Powder Springs Road. Parking is available at the Wildhorse Creek Park.

Trail is simple and well paved. Storm drains are nicely decorated along the trail with a different animal on each drain access. Low area trail scenery, the Noses creek comes along side the trail when getting close to the Silver Comet trail. Hiked in winter when temperature was 23F, only met one other person. The trail does connect with the Silver Comet trail. A gazebo overlooking a marsh area. Some graffiti along the trail, signage is in need of updating (a little weathered).

This is a nice little trail with a few scenic areas to ride a bike on (or walk). It will eventually take you to the silver comet trail.

It was quite nice, but I did not encounter very many people. It was very shaded on the trail.

There are a few areas where I noticed someone had spray painted a bench or nature-lookout area.

The path is paved and fairly wide. There are a few places where it crosses roads. I may ride my bike here again with someone else, but I think if I'll be riding by myself I will stick with the well-traveled areas of the Silver Comet Trail.
