Chief Ladiga Trail / Silver Comet Trail Infographic

  1. 1. Chief Ladiga Trail / Silver Comet Trail The Chief Ladiga Trail and Silver Comet Trail in NE Alabama / NW Georgia is a rail trail formed after the railroad formally occupying the trail was abandoned. Currently, the trail is a continuous paved trail for over 90 miles from Smyrna, Georgia to Anniston, Alabama. There are plans to extend the trail through Anniston to the Norfolk Southern line, when completed, the trail will be around 100 miles long! With both trails combined, it makes for the longest continuous paved trail in America! Both trails are non-motorized and are great for walking, bicycling, rollerblading, skateboarding, hiking, jogging, running, horseback riding, and dog walking. @GeekAlabama Plus.Google.Com/+GeekAlabama Infographic Brought To You By: Infographic Created By: Nathan Young 256-452-1565 @GeekAlabama Plus.Google.Com/+GeekAlabama Infographic Brought To You By: Infographic Created By: Nathan Young Dallas Powder Springs Austell Cedartown Alabama Georgia Piedmont Jacksonville Weaver Anniston Oxford The Silver Comet Trail is a rail trail and is named for the Silver Comet passenger train that used the same route from 1947 to 1969. It begins in Smyrna, Georgia and runs west through Paulding and Polk counties. The trail connects with Alabama's Chief Ladiga Trail at the Georgia-Alabama border. As of September 2008, the entire 61.5- mile (99 km) Silver Comet Trail was paved and open for riding. The 33-mile long Chief Ladiga Trail is Alabama's premier rail- trail. It is located in Cleburne and Calhoun counties, in east- central Alabama. The smooth asphalt surface travels through the Talladega National Forest, and connects to Georgia's Silver Comet Trail to the east. Currently Chief Ladiga ends in northern Anniston. Plans are underway to extend the trail an additional 7 miles into Anniston, allowing a possible train return route to Atlanta using Amtrak.
