Smyrna’s Top Trails

Hike, bike, and kayak your way to new adventures.

Silver Comet Trail – One of the most popular trails in Atlanta, this 61.5 trail system runs from Smyrna all the way to Esom Hill. The eastern section runs through residential areas, with housing developments along the way featuring private trail access. The western section offers a mixed landscape of pine stands and farmland.

There are plans to connect the eastern end in Smyrna to downtown Atlanta via the Silver Comet Connector, which will also cross the Atlanta Beltline with anticipation of completion by 2022 or 2023.

With plenty of access points featuring parking and other facilities along the trail’s entire route, it’s easy to spend a day exploring different parts of the trail. 

Heritage Park Trail – A shorter trail at 3.3 miles, this soft-surface trail features river views and is perfect for hikers of all skill levels. Heritage Park Trail travels through forests along Nickajack Creek and passes old ruins of Concord Woolen Mills, ending at the historic Concord Covered Bridge and Ruff’s Mill. Grab your family–and your furry friend, too–and hit this trail for a mid-week reset from the hustle and bustle or change of scenery from walking around the block.
