Wheelchair Accessibility = good; short, paved hill leads down to trail

Coot's Lake Beach Trailhead is at mile marker 33.5 on the Silver Comet Trail, has a porta-toilet, and paved parking lot. The trailhead is next to Coot's Lake Beach in Rockmart, Georgia. Coot's Lake Beach has public swimming at an affordable price. Coot's Lake Station is a convenience store/gas station that's very close to trailhead.

Located 2.6 miles east from Coot's Lake is the massive 800-foot, turn of the century railroad tunnel under Brushy Mountain Road. It was built in 1912 and is located at mile marker 30.9 on the Silver Comet Trail in Paulding County.

The Coot's Lake section of trail runs through forests, and next to fields. It cuts through large hills exposing impressive rock formations, and makes a worthwhile day trip.
