The Silver Comet Trail in Polk County travels near several historical locations including downtown Rockmart and the Cedartown Depot. The depot is a recreation of the original Seaboard Airline Railway Train Station, and it serves as a trailhead, museum, and the Cedartown Welcome Center.

One of the most spectacular attractions is an 800-foot antique railroad tunnel constructed in 1912. Though the Brushy Mountain Tunnel is located about 2.6 miles east of Coot's Lake Trailhead, it is actually in Paulding County near the Polk/Paulding county line.
