The Paulding County section of the Silver Comet travels through Hiram, behind the Paulding Chamber of Commerce in Dallas, through remote areas in the Paulding Wildlife Management Area, and heads west near Braswell to the Polk County line.
Some interesting locations are the Thomas Concrete plant east of the Hiram trailhead, and the 750-foot restored Pumpkinvine Trestle about 0.6 miles west of Rambo Road. Homer Leggett Park is next to the Hiram parking lot, and Tara Drummond Park is located at the former Seaboard Road trailhead.
The 800-foot Brushy Mountain tunnel is in Paulding county, at the Paulding/Polk county line. The tunnel was built in 1912, and the nearest trailhead is Coot's Lake in Polk. This spectacular tunnel is about 2.6 miles east of Coot's Lake.
The Silver Comet Trail is "open from dawn to dusk", and the trail is lightly patrolled.
