Volunteer Day Update - Feb. 21, 2015


We have a special project on the Riverside Trail, about 1-3/4 mile up. 

Bring shovels, picks, garden rakes. If you have waders, bring them. A wheelbarrow will be great for hauling supplies. Along the way we'll be replacing/repairing blazes, so bring a hammer, too.

Meet at the Visitor Center by 11:55 am. Dress warmly! 


The Friends and the park need YOUR help keeping our trails clear and easy to hike for our guests. Claim your own section of trail TODAY! Click here to start!

Want to give a section a try before you commit? No problem! Most of the sections are still in good shape from our efforts this fall and winter, but stuff is about to get growing like crazy. Go to the Adopt-A-Trail page for more info.

Hiking Trails

Our Adopt-A-Trail program is an on-your-own-time opportunity to keep a section of trail pleasant to hike. Volunteer Days are scheduled for trail building and heavy maintenance.

Mountain Bike Trails

The first "barbell loop" trail is complete! The first rideable trails of the 12-13 mile MTB trail system are Easy to Moderate, and feature two loops linked by a high-speed connector. It's on the map at right. We need volunteers to build and maintain the trails!

Horseback Trails

The 11-mile Central Loop Equestrian Trail has been reviewed by GA DNR and construction can begin anytime -- all we need are volunteers! The trailer parking area is engineered and we plan to get this moving this year!

Chattahoochee Bend RiverFest

Paddle Georgia swept through Newnan and Chattahoochee Bend State Park during three-day/two-night cap of their 10th Annual week-long trip, and we threw a huge party!

Our photographer, Chris Martin, has posted the photos to an online album. Click the photo above to see how good the photos are. You can view photos, download them, and order prints and gifts by visiting the online album.
