How big a deal is this trail? It has inspired it's own web site!!! Included at this site is almost everything you may want to know about the Silver Comet Trail!
In Cobb & Paulding Counties construction is complete on the Silver Comet Trail. Many sections in Polk county are now complete. Thanks go to many people including Senator Nathan Dean and Alicia Soriano but most of all to the PATH foundation. The once railroad line has become a first rate trail, although paved. Ultimately, it will extend 57 miles! Starting at Mavell Road It will connect Powder Springs, Dallas, Rockmart, Cedartown , and end at the Alabama border. This is an expensive but exciting proposition, $13.5 million.
Parking: Many places along the trial including; the trail head at Mavell Rd., Fontaine Rd. at East-West Connector, Cooper Lake Rd. north at Derby Lane (etc.).
