This path is the Silver Comet Trail’s continuation west from Floyd Road. Along this section’s 7.3-mile route (one way), the trail passes through a railroad cut, over a trestle bridge with a panoramic view of the Dogwood Country Club, and past a parking area and 1.6-mile side trail leading to Wild Horse Creek Park. Farther west the path skirts the edge of historic Powder Springs (access trail leads to restaurants and shops). Just beyond town, a boardwalk leads to Lucille Creek Trail, and the path climbs a bridge over the creek and descends to its end point at the Florence Road parking area.
