The Paulding County section of the Silver
Comet travels through Hiram, behind the
Paulding Chamber of Commerce in Dallas,
through remote areas in the Paulding Wildlife
Management Area, and heads west near Braswell to the Polk County line.Paulding Wildlife Management Area
Some interesting locations are the Thomas
Concrete plant east of the Hiram trailhead,
and the 750-foot restored Pumpkinvine Trestle
about 0.6 miles west of Rambo Road. Homer
Leggett Park is next to the Hiram parking
lot, and Tara Drummond Park is located at
the former Seaboard Road trailhead.
The 800-foot Brushy Mountain tunnel is in Paulding county, at the Paulding/Polk county line. The tunnel was built in 1912, and the nearest trailhead is Coot's Lake in Polk. This spectacular tunnel is about 2.6 miles east of Coot's Lake.
The Silver Comet Trail is "open from
dawn to dusk", and the trail is lightly patrolled.
Some areas are very remote, so please read
