Wheelchair Accessibility from the Silver Comet Trail at Concord Road = not good because there's a big hill at Concord and a switch-back trail leading down to Heritage Park.

Located on the corner of Fontaine and Nickajack roads, Heritage Park is a 105-acre historical nature preserve. The park is located in Mableton, Georgia in Cobb County.

Heritage Park's 1.7-mile walking trail has an elevated boardwalk over wetlands, travels through forests along Nickajack Creek, passes the ruins of Concord Woolen Mills, and is near the historic Concord Covered Bridge. Heritage Park is a soft-surface walking trail, and bicycles are not allowed. The path is gravel and dirt, and because it travels through the woods, sometimes there are large roots that may be a trip hazard. It's a beautiful trail but it is isolated, so please use proper safety precautions.

To access Heritage Park from the Silver Comet, park at the Concord Road trailhead and walk east about 0.2 miles. The entrance is on the east lane of the Silver Comet, just past the wooden Concord Road bridge and before the metal East-West Connector bridge. This section of Heritage Park includes views of Nickajack creek, the Concord Woolen Mill ruins, and a peak of Ruff's Grist Mill in the distance.

The Heritage Park entrance, located at the corner of Fontaine Road and Nickajack Road, has good parking and nice restrooms. Some of the pick-nick areas are covered and some are part of a wooded elevated overlook.
