The trail leading to Rottenwood Creek at Paces Mill will be closed from February 13 to June 1, 2006. Cobb County received a grant from the Federal Highway Administration and will be constructing a multi-use trail through the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. It will begin at Paces Mill and parallel the Chattahoochee River to Rottenwood Creek. Once this section is completed, the trail will continue through National Park Service property following Rottenwood Creek to Cumberland Boulevard and ending at Interstate North Parkway. The latter section will be closed to the public from June 1, 2006 – February 1, 2007. The trail will eventually connect to other green trails within Cobb County.

 Upon completion, the multi-use trail will be open to bicycles, strollers, joggers, and walkers. The trail surface will be constructed with pervious concrete. Motorized vehicles, skateboards and roller blades will be restricted from the trail. For more information, contact Cobb County Department of Transportation, 770-528-1602.
