Wheelchair Accessibility = not great; gravel parking lot and moderate hill leading down to trail

Martin Trailhead is at mile marker 53.4 on the Silver Comet Trail. It has a gravel parking lot and a portable toilet. When heading east, the Silver Comet travels through Downtown Cedartown. The area west of Martin Trailhead travels through scenic rural areas and is remote. Esom Hill is the only trailhead between Martin and Piedmont, Alabama.

Please follow safety precautions and be prepared when traveling in either direction (good ideas). Some visitors report that the parking lot gate can be locked during the open hours including in the middle of the day. The closest trailhead to the west is Esom Hill at the Alabama state line and Cedartown to the east.
