Cave Spring is known for its small town charm and access to natural resources, and has been mentioned by some trail enthusiasts in the region as Georgia’s next “trail town” attracting visitors and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
The Northwest GA Regional Planning Commission, Cave Spring Downtown Development, and BikeWalk! Northwest GA, has identified a potential trail spur corridor that would extend from the Silver Comet Trail in Cedartown to Cave Spring, GA. The corridor is approximately 12 miles in length and will traverse a variety of landscapes and land use areas.
Part of the scope of the study will examine ways to optimize economic development and increase visitation should the trail connection move forward. The study will examine technical components of trail development for the trail corridor. Land use, traffic patterns, safety issues, necessary structures, roadway intersections, access areas, riparian constraints, utilities, permitting limitations, development costs, and public lands will be identified and analyzed for trail feasibility.
