The Silver Comet Trail follows the bed of the old Seaboard Air Line. From 1947 to 1969, the shiny Silver Comet passenger train provided luxury service between New York and Birmingham.
Today's Silver Comet runs from Smyrna all the way to Esom Hill. The eastern section runs through residential areas, including housing developments with private trail access. The western section is more bucolic, a mixed landscape of pine stands and farmland.
Trail highlights include several relics of its railroading past. At Mile Marker 23, the Pumpkinvine Creek Trestle stands 100 feet high and 700 feet long. At Mile Marker 30.8, the Brushy Mountain Tunnel goes through 700 feet of damp, dark corridor.
Length: 61.5 miles
Trail end points: Smyrna (Mavell Road) to State Line Gateway Park
Trail surfaces: Concrete
