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."
