This paved former railway (a precursor to the Atlanta BeltLine) cuts a 61.5-mile path from Smyrna to Alabama, passing junk-filled backyards and bucolic pine groves. Hit up trailside bike shop Silver Comet Cycles (mile 4.2) and a private lakefront beach (mile 33). Just don’t forget to arrange a ride back home, unless you plan to pedal.
