Trails and Parks

Get in Spring in Your Step with our Beautiful Trails and Parks

One of our greatest assets, the Silver Comet Trail can be accessed from several trail connectors within Powder Springs.

  • Linear Park
  • Dillard St. Connector
  • Lost Mountain Rd Connector
  • Florence Rd Connector

This fully paved trail was built over an abandoned rail line and named after the Silver Comet passenger Train runs from Smyrna, GA to the Georgia/Alabama line creating over 61 miles of walkable, joggable, bikable trail for your enjoyment!

The Lucille Trail is a 10-foot wide concrete facility just over a mile in length located west of the historic downtown along the western bank of the Lucille Creek. The path leads to downtown Powder Springs and extends through the town center to complete the downtown loop along Marietta and Dillard Streets to the Silver Comet Trail at the Dillard Street trail-head. 

Like the Wildhorse Trail to the east, the Lucille Trail functions as a recreation and transportation corridor. Residents are able to travel without a vehicle to numerous destinations, including Powder Springs and Wildhorse Creek Parks, historic downtown, the library, and employment and commercial centers. The trail is closed at night. Parking is available at Shipp Rd and in downtown.

The Wildhorse Trail is a 1.5 mile trail that begins at the Wildhorse Creek Park on Macedonia Road and continues along Wildhorse and Noses Creek to the point where it connects with the Silver Comet Trail at Carter Road. 

The Wildhorse Trail is designed to accommodate bicyclists, skaters and walkers, hikers, joggers and persons with disabilities. It does not have facilities for horses, however. The trail is open from dawn to dusk except after rainstorms.

Parking is available at the Wildhorse Creek Park with access on Lancer Drive and at Carter Road with access at the Silver Comet trestle bridge.
