Silver Comet Trail: Mavell Road to Floyd Road Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the region’s finest “rail trails,” the Silver Comet follows the former route of a passenger train that ran from New York City to Birmingham, Alabama.

Developed by the PATH Foundation in partnership with state and county agencies, the multi-use trail, which stretches along the old railway bed, reaches the Alabama state line, where it connects with the Chief Ladiga Trail, providing a 101-mile-long pedestrian path that links suburban Atlanta with Anniston, Alabama. An attraction along this section of the trail is Heritage Park, with foot trails leading to ruins of the nineteenth-century Concord Woolen Mill, old Concord Covered Bridge, and a nature center pavilion."

"Following the route of the “Silver Comet” train that carried passengers and mail between New York City, Atlanta, and Birmingham from 1947 until 1969, this rail-trail stretches from Smyrna to Alabama, where it joins the Chief Ladiga Trail rising east from Anniston, Alabama. The easternmost section of the trail, this 4.2-mile path links Mavell Road with Floyd Road. Sites along the way include a steel-framed bridge over the East-West Connector; Heritage Park, with side trails leading to ruins of the Concord Woolen Mill, historic Concord Covered Bridge, and a nature center pavilion; and the old railroad tunnel beneath Hurt Road."
