A section of the old bed of the railroad from Chickamauga, Ga., to Durham on Lookout Mountain, past Higdon Lane at Hinkle, Ga., runs just to the left of the current Highway 157.
It is raised just above the level of the road as it proceeds to a small stream and ravine that had to be trestled.
The railroad bed goes by a barn with a scenic view, then it moves toward Mt. Olive Road where the highway jagged to the left when a bridge for it was put across a gorge of Rock Creek in the 1970s.
The railroad stays on the high ground. It went across a trestle behind Mt. Olive Road where the road takes a swing to the left. A tributary of Rock Creek goes under this trestle.
The line went behind Mt. Olive Cemetery on to where a house with a deck overlooking Rock Creek has been built in the center of the track.
Just beyond is where Tucker Branch comes into Rock Creek. By Tucker Branch, the railroad has rejoined Rock Creek.
Across Tucker Branch, Vulcan Drive follows the rail track just above Rock Creek until the old community of Vulcan is reached at the junction of Vulcan Drive and Vulcan Road. Vulcan Road proceeds on to Nickajack Road.
