Johnson Ferry is usually buzzing with activity as people walk and bike trails for exercise, or enjoy the wildlife in the emerging wetland on the riverbank. Though the trails lie near heavily traveled Johnson Ferry Road, you can get a sense of escape as you stroll down trails shaded by heavy forest of beech and oak. This riverside wetland also has more birds and greater diversity of wildlife than other wetland habitats along the river. The trail first follows a streambed and moves deeper into quiet woods before looping back to skirt the Chattahoochee River. Here you can sit on a wood bench and watch herons cruising low over the slow-paced river.
