After settling on this land in 1819, James Martin ran a ferry across the Chattahoochee River for many years. His descendents, the Jones family, operated the ferry until it was replaced by the steel bridge in 1904. By the 1930s, the structure had deteriorated to a point where it was declared unsafe and abandoned. Today, this unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area offers more than 7 miles of trails along floodplains and across ridges of upland mixed forest.
