Due to pending bridge repairs/rehabilitation on two of the trail bridges, parts of the trail will be closed to ALL trail traffic between January 6, 2020 and February 28, 2020.
The Silver Comet Trail bridge over Nickajack Creek, located near the Concord Road trail head and trail mile marker 2.5 will be closed for up to 7 days during the dates above.
The Silver Comet Trail bridge over Noses Creek, located near the Carter Road parking lot and trail mile marker 8.4 will be closed for up to 30 days during the dates above. The Wildhorse Trail will remain open with the potential for temporary closures and flagging under the Silver Comet Trail bridge. Parts of the Carter Road parking lot will be closed for construction equipment/supplies.
There will be no access through the construction sites during the closures and no detours will be available. We apologize for any inconveniences but Cobb County’s primary concern is the safety of all trail users.
More specific closure information will be available in November.
Please note that Cobb County has installed additional trail markers along Silver Comet Trail as well as other trails within the County. More information can be found on the new markers in the links below.
