Let's head back and see how the progress of the stadium is going and explore the paved walkway that will lead us to the new Braves Stadium.  I explored these trails last year on my bike.  While this is not exploritory, due to construction we may have to do a little rerouting as we travel down the paved route from Cochran Shoals and then up towards the new Braves Stadium.  If we have time we'll head down toward the West Palisades park as well along Rottenwood Creek.

This is a paved path so I do recommend tennis shoes over hiking boots.  There is also a bathroom at the start.

Please remember a $3.00 daily or $25.00 annual Park Pass is required on parked vehicles in the National Park.



Required Items to Bring:

Comfortable Tennis shoes for walking on pavement
