Silver Comet Trail

Silver Comet Trail Overview

Silver Comet Trail The Silver Comet Trail is a 60 paved mile rail trail that goes from Smyrna, Georgia to Anniston, Alabama where it connects to the Chief Ladiga Trail, another rail trail 33 miles in length. This trail is a favorite because it offers a long distance easily ridden surface through exceptional scenery of pine forests, rock walls and wildlife.

The Silver Comet was a passenger train operated by the Seaboard Air-Line Railway until 1969.

Trail highlights include the 750 foot long Pumpkinvine Creek Trestle, the 800 foot Brushy Mountain Tunnel and the lake overlook at mile marker 45. There are several places along the route for food and provisions, but care should be taken to include plenty of water and snacks depending on your mileage.

As of April 2007 there is still minor construction on a few final points. Be sure to check the trail links for detours around construction.
