Event Directions:

From downtown Atlanta drive north on I-75 to I-285. Take a right on I-285 to Exit 22. Turn left, cross over the interstate and follow Interstate Parkway North, which curves around to the left. The parking lot will be about 0.8 miles down the road on your right, just before the Chattahoochee River. If you cross the Chattahoochee you will get to the main Cochran Shoals area, which is the wrong place.
