Silver Comet 5.0 Tour

Silver Comet 5.0

The Silver Comet Trail is named for the Silver Comet passenger train that traversed the route in the middle of the last century. Now the second longest rail-to-trail route in the nation and one of the most widely acclaimed, the route takes riders from the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia to its continuation onto the Chief Ladiga Trail in Eastern Alabama.

This two-day out-and-back tour takes riders through the forests and small towns of Western Georgia and eventually culminating at the trailhead near Anniston, Alabama. Experience a slice of Americana as we make our way through two states, en route to luxury accommodations at Hotel Finial in Anniston.

The 5.0 tour is 80 miles each day (160-mile total) and begin at the red caboose at the Hiram Trail Head.  All rides end on day 1 at the Chief Ladiga trailhead near Anniston, AL.  Day 2 comprises our return route.  This tour is perfect for the cycling enthusiast comfortable with several hours of riding each day.

This is the ride for you if you’re looking for gentle slopes, paths free from car traffic, and a hometown feel. Don’t forget to ride your way to a great meal in Anniston!
Apart from dinner on the evening of day 1, this is an all-inclusive tour, with all meals, snacks, drinks, professional ride support, and one-night, double occupancy stay in Hotel Finial included. Single occupancy available upon request.

Double Occupancy Rate: $360
