Trail Closure due to Bridge Construction
Contact: Visitor Center, 770-427-4686 x0
Due to bridge rehabilitation, portions of the fire road trail between Burnt Hickory road and Dallas highway will be closed beginning on March 2, 2011.
During bridge construction, the parallel hiking trail will remain open as a detour, that begins and ends at the same destination as the fire road trail.
The hiking trail is noted on the Kennesaw Mountain Trail Club Map with a green line that diverts from the main red line trail. Click the link above to view the map or to access the maps page click here.
The trail will be reopened during the month of April while the concrete for the bridge "cures" but will be closed again for further construction at the beginning of May 2011.
If you have any questions contact the visitor center at 770-427-4686 x0.
