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 nature
preserve. The park is located in Smyrna,
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 doesn't allow bicycles. Areas are isolated, so please use proper safety precautions.
