Email friendsofchattahoocheebend@gmail.com to update the status of a trail section.

Feel free to go out and clear any section of trail regardless of adoption status! We’ll greatly appreciate it! A rake, pruning shears, and a small handsaw are all you need to clear a trail. Large fallen trees will be taken care of by park staff.
