Swim

A deep swimming hole in a creek near the Rockmart quarry in the town of Rockmart. You can jump off the concrete base of an old pump station into a dammed portion of Thompson Creek. It is on the new Silver Comet Trail , a paved hiking-biking trail over 37 miles long, starting at Mavell Rd. in Smyrna going to Water Street in historic downtown Rockmart. The swimming place is very near the Rockmart end of this trail, on the south side of the trail across from the quarry, marked only by a small path.

This report from a visitor in 7/2014:" We just visited this swimming hole and we were disappointed because it didn't seem safe to jump in such rocky, shallow water and there was a lot of erosion between the bank and where the huge cement platform started. We had to climb a very rocky and steep path to access the platform. Maybe when water levels are higher, this would be a nice spot to jump in. The platform itself is two levels and my son swam a bit off the lower level only. The directions were great and easy to follow. We parked in the little town and walked down the road to where the comet trail starts. You just turn left (upstream) and its only a little ways up the path. Was also disappointed at all the litter around the swimming hole but overall a fun adventure."Courtesy of swimmingholes.org
