Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area

Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area offers extraordinary recreation opportunities in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. With 48 miles of river and over 50 miles of hiking, outdoor activities can keep visitors busy for days. In addition, visitors can learn about Native American culture and view signs of habitation in rock overhangs.

Threats

Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area has critical land acquisition needs. If acquired, Hyde Farm would provide visitors with a window into the traditional farming culture that has largely disappeared in Cobb County because of development. The property is adjacent to the northern end of the popular Johnson Ferry unit and represents one of the "dwindling opportunities to protect the scenic, recreational, natural, and historic values" of the Chattahoochee River corridor as proposed by 1999 legislation.
