Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area: Powers Island Professional Review and Guide

"In the 1800s, the Power family owned a substantial amount of land along the Chattahoochee River. In 1832, James Power set up a ferry operation on the river (where Interstate 285 now crosses), and he likely farmed the surrounding land and harvested timber.

As you walk the trails at Powers Island, you will see no trace of James Power’s work— the trees and brush have reclaimed the land. There are really two areas to walk here. From the southwest corner of the parking lot, you can walk west to Powers Island, a narrow strip of land with a boat launch and good view of the river. From the north end of the parking lot, a trail leads to the lush hills and riverbank on the east side of the Chattahoochee."
