West-Rim Trail Re-routing Project -
Your State Parks Day
Get Outdoors Georgia
Saturday, Sep 27, 2014 10 AM to 5 PM
Help re-route sections of the West-Rim Trail, one of the most scenic trails in the nation. Due to its popularity, parts of the trail now suffer from over-use. These views appear on postcards and in magazine/newspaper articles on a regular basis. The West Rim Trail is rated as a moderately difficult trail.

The West Rim Trail is one of the most scenic and popular trails in the park. It has several beautiful overlooks where the canyon can be viewed. These views appear on postcards and in magazine/newspaper articles on a regular basis. The West Rim Trail is rated as a moderately difficult trail.

Because this trail is so popular, it is suffering from over-use. Plans call for two sections of the trail to be re-routed due to deep erosion and extensive root exposure in the current location. Volunteers will work closely with park staff & the Friend's Trail Committee on this project.

If you are interested please meet us at the Interpretive Center, located within the main "Day-Use" area of the park, at 10 am on September 27th. The project will last from approximately 10 am to 5 pm, however volunteers are welcome to leave at any time.

Please call the office at (706) 657-4050 or email Josh Purdy at Josh.Purdy@dnr.state.ga.us if you have any questions.

*Note: A $5 Parking Fee is required for all vehicles 706-657-4050.
