Built on a foundation of the fabulous Angus Gholson Nature Trail, the new Chattahoochee Nature Trails system treats hikers to an exploration of botanically-rich habitats along bluffs and ravines near the Apalachicola River and an archaeological site towering over the river’s edge. A combination of boardwalk, improved footpath, and natural surface trails, the project – a big undertaking for a town with a population of less than 6,000 – won a special award from American Trails for its construction and design. The new trail system opened in May 2012.
From downtown Chattahoochee, drive west on US 90. Watch for the turnoff for the Chattahoochee River Park and campground on the left. Follow the road down towards the river and around to the trailhead parking area.
