Workday Tentative Due To Weather Forecast (Rain Likely)
Saturday's Volunteer Day will be a little different. There won't be any formal Friends leadership (as of right now) but y'all can gather at nine, check in at the Visitor Center, and hit the trails. A couple of us will be out there later in the day, around 2 pm, if you'd rather come then. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring leaf/grass rakes, pruning shears/loppers. Your mission: maintain the trails ahead of the green up. Which trail? The Wild Turkey Trail from the Visitor Center to the Tower Trail to the Riverside Trail needs help. Also, northbound on the Riverside Trail past the Observation Tower.
See the Adopt-A-Trail map for details!
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.
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!
NOTE: We need VOLUNTEERS to FINISH the trails before they can be officially opened. No volunteers to work, no open 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!

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!
