Weekend Weather Update - Dec. 17, 2014

Well, folks... the forecast for Friday night and most of Saturday is rather discouraging: 80+% chance of rain. Building new trails in sloppy conditions is not fun. Update on Saturday's Volunteer Day to come Friday evening.

The update will appear on the calendar at right >>


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.

Volunteer Opportunities ~ Trails

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 Muddy Spokes is nearing completion of the first loop in the 12-13 miles MTB trail system, and they're awaiting review by GA DNR. If you or someone you know is a mountain bike rider, 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 has been determined and an engineer is working on the site plan.

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.
