"The trail is on the west side of the river upstream from Johnson Ferry Road. This is an exceptionally good birding area with aquatic, open, brushy, and forested habitats. Ducks, herons, beavers, muskrats, raccoons, opossums, otters, turtles, frogs, and toads are some of the wildlife associated with the wet area and river. The forested area attracts many songbirds. Several benches are positioned along the riverside portion of the trail for wildlife viewing."
"The Johnson Ferry Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) comprises 108 acres entirely on the floodplain of the Chattahoochee River. This unit also provides a picnic area, along with boat ramp and launch area for canoes and rafts"
