Crooked Creek Trail
The proposed action is to construct 3,060 linear feet of hiking trail in the Holcomb Bridge Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. The trail would connect to a one-mile access trail to be constructed by the City of Sandy Springs on a proposed adjacent city park to be known as Crooked Creek Park.
The Holcomb Bridge Unit comprises approximately 33-acres of undisturbed forestland bordered by the Chattahoochee River to the north and Crooked Creek to the west. Currently there is no official access to National Park Service-owned land in this unit. This project entails construction of a loop trail of approximately 3,060 linear feet in the Holcomb Bridge Unit, mostly on an existing social trail. The proposed new city park would provide access to the unit via a 1-mile natural surface walking trail. The new city park would be constructed near the intersection of Spalding Drive and River Exchange Drive.
