Birds, trees, invasive species,
Best spot in the southeast (Atlanta, at least)

Great overlook of the river.

Nice trail in the city. Easy but with lots to see, especially the bamboo grove. Watch out for snakes.

Beautiful walk and a wonderful place to spend a day around Atlanta.

the best in atlanta for keeping dogs and you cool due to the dog beach

Certain trails can be very hilly, so wear closed toed shoes. (A lot of people were wearing sandals as they walked towards the river, but not knowing they still have to use a trail.)

It’s pretty cool and the best part is getting to the trail that runs parallel to the river. However, be careful bc the park hasn’t really cleared the trails so you might have to hop over or under a few logs. But the views were worth it!

Very nice park with a great deal of foliage to protect from sun and rain. Having said that, I was a little disappointed because of a lack of signage and also because every "path" was muddy and flooded. This won't stop me from coming back but it made the trail quick slippery and might be an issue for older or less skilled hikers. Pretty views once you get to the river.

Very nice hike, there are too many unleashed dogs there. I almost stepped on a 5' snake. I would have given it 5 stars but the unleashed dogs and lack of parking have it a four star rating.

It was a nice trail. I started at marker 13, got to the lookout tower and decided I wanted to go all the way to the river. If you hike the entire thing like I did-make sure you have plenty of water. Also, yellowjackets during spring are everywhere here and they kinda linger around the maps-so be careful!!

Have been a regular on the beltline since it opened. Love to come here and stroll to different areas to eat, attend events, or meet with friends. Perfect for days when you don't want do any strenuous exercise.

Easy trail. Pretty views in the beginning but not too much to see after that. Well marked. Keep an eye out for dog poop though.
Overall nice stroll!

A plethora of trails some that take you on the banks of the Chattahoochee.

Nice difficulty with several options to take. Tons of dogs and trail runners. Bamboo forest, great views of the river, and beautiful places to take in nature. My husband and I hiked over 5 miles today and had an incredible time.

saw a baby snapping turtle and enjoyed the trails but nothing over spectacular today. was looking for trails to ride mountain bike on but found nothing really.. but realized there's no MTB riding listed here..

Great trails on the east side of the Chattahoochee. Nice views of the river and the overlooks are spectacular. Well worth the $5 parking fee. Get there early on the weekend. It fills up fast.

Always fun to ride on the silver comet. Just have to learn what time of day works for you.

Loved it.

Awesome!

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.

For being so close to the city, it still feels fairly remote. The view at Poppy’s point is great (plus a nice rest stop) on your way to the bamboo forest at the end/turnaround.

Nice views and Nice hikes. All the trails are easy. Some go in the woods some go by the river. Take my dog each time and she loves it.

Great trail but is tricky in some spots where the trail looks like it eroded away .

Really enjoyable trail. Great views.

This was an urban hike through Freedom Park on the PATH trail, by the edge of Candler Park, over Lullwater Creek, and then through Olmstead’s linear parks: Shadyside, Oak Grove, Dellwood, and Virgilee. Hikers without dogs could detour into Fernbank or the Frazer Center’s Cator Woolford Gardens at the turn-around point (around the 2 mile mark).

Refreshing little walk in the city. More sidewalks then surrounding areas. Lots of nice redevelopment to give one remodel ideas.

Super sparsely used but so pretty! Really hilly, would be great for a run! Saw literally no humans once we left South Bend.

Great! Love it! So much to look at while running/walking/biking whatever!
