The Silver Comet Trail is one of Georgia’s top trails for running, walking, cycling, or skating. It’s an epic-length, 61.5-mile trail that spans from the Atlanta suburbs in Smyrna to the Alabama border. The rail-trail follows the corridor of an upscale passenger railway that ran through this scenic swath of Georgia landscape in the mid Protected content .

Today, the smooth, paved trail follows a nearly level grade, thanks to the railway’s deep-cut channels, towering train trestles, and shallow tunnels. Hills on the trail are gradual, and the trail runs nearly straight, following a beeline direction with gentle curves. Limited street crossings make for a great, distraction-free, long-distance run or cycle on the trail. And the sights are scenic, ranging from heavily-wooded forest to grassy farmland to suburban neighborhoods.
