= good heading east - you'll have to cross busy Main Street, heading west is very hilly
The Cedartown Depot is at mile marker 51.4
on the Silver Comet Trail, which travels alongside
the Cedartown Depot. Restored in 2004, the
Cedartown Depot is a replica of the original
Seaboard Airline Railway depot. The depot
serves as the Cedartown Welcome Center,
and a Silver Comet trailhead. It has nice
restrooms, water, maps, and a Silver Comet
Museum. The depot is staffed during the
day, and is a few blocks from historic downtown
The restrooms are only open during business
The trail is very hilly heading east to Grady Rd Trailhead. Some of the hills are rolling while others are long, steep, and in direct sunlight. Please bring plenty to drink, and be careful not to overheat. For more information on the hilly areas, visit the Grady Road Trailhead page.
Heading west the trail travels through
park-like settings, alongside Hwy-278, and
to Martin Trailhead.
Even though the trail runs through populated
areas, some sections are are isolated. Please
use proper safety precautions, because trail
users are occasionally harassed by people
loitering around the trail just west of the depot.
