This abandoned railway line ran from Chickamauga, GA, to the coal mines at Durham, GA, located atop Lookout Mountain.
The line was abandoned in 1951 and the rails were removed the following year. A majority of the former right-of-way can still be traced, although some of it has been encroached on and part of it goes through a private nature preserve.
More recently, the former ROW was given to Walker County, GA. The City of Chickamauga, in cooperation with the Walker County, intended to build a trail on the right-of-way from Chickamauga to Lula Falls, where the route first reached the top of Lookout Mountain. After already receiving a grant to pay for the first part of it, the plans were dropped because of opposition from land owners along the property.
