Island Ford Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The 297-acre Island Ford Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) has been retained in as natural a condition as possible for almost a century, first by the original private owners and later by the National Park Service. The mature hardwood forest at this site is a fine example of what the Piedmont area of Georgia might have looked like before it was cleared and developed.

This is a great natural area, especially for a highly residential portion of metropolitan Atlanta, to find a variety of spring and summer wildflowers, trees, and wildlife. The area also contains a number of rock shelters along the river, as well as shoals within the stream."
