Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area: Island Ford Professional Review and Guide
"Before Europeans settled in the Island Ford area, Native Americans had established a major trail that they used as a trade route. In those days, this section of the Chattahoochee River sometimes dropped low enough that people could wade across. As you hike the Island Ford Trail, you will see natural rock alcoves that were used by prehistoric Native Americans as far back as 8000 years ago. It’s also likely that you’ll see anglers in the river shoals, as this is a popular spot for trout fishing. Much of the trail moves easily along the riverbank, but if you want a little more exercise you can take a path that loops through the hills west of the river."
