Campaign to Restore Chattahoochee Park Trails!
Did you know that the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) has 83 miles of trails in its fifteen park units located along the river?
Even before the CRNRA was established in 1978, outdoor enthusiasts hiked along the Chattahoochee and its tributaries and up nearby slopes for views of the river.
Many of these “social paths” are still being used by the three million people who now visit the park every year – and they are being loved to death. Degraded and eroded trails pose safety problems for visitors and environmental harm to waterways and natural habitats.
Our vision is to preserve and manage the trail system within the CRNRA so that its natural beauty and cultural heritage can be shared and enjoyed today, tomorrow and for years to come. We also hope to connect park trails with paths in adjacent communities where possible.
To reverse years of degradation, CPC has initiated a Campaign to Restore Your Chattahoochee Park Trails, working with the National Park Service and other partners. Our goals: better trails, restored habitats and more educational opportunities for visitors.
The Trust for Public Land (TPL) is partnering with us to make the CRNRA a recreational jewel for metro Atlanta. To kick off our Trail Restoration Campaign, TPL has generously offered a 4:1 matching opportunity with a goal of raising $25,000.
