This Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared for the National Park Service (NPS) to support the proposed construction of three trail connection projects within the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (the park). The proposed trail connection projects are located within three of the park's units, including Bowmans Island West, Johnson Ferry South, and Cochran Shoals/Sope Creek.

A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been made based on the EA and other factors in the public planning record for this proposal.
To support the publication of a special regulation required to open some new trails in the Sope Creek and Johnson Ferry South units to cycling, a cost-benefit analysis was completed as part of the regulatory process.
