The Rottenwood Creek multi-use trail runs from the corner of Interstate North Parkway and Cumberland Boulevard to the Chattahoochee Palisades West Parking lot near Hwy 41 and Paces Mill Road. I rode it today and took some pictures.
The parking lot at Palisades West.
It runs right under I-75
There's lots of dog doo so you have to be on the look out.
Rottenwood Creek looks pristine here.
But don't let that fool you.
Hey here's a hill.
Evidently there's a dispute between the feds and Cobb County about who is responsible for trash pickup.
The parking lot at Cumberland Blvd & Interstate North.
So how was the ride? Short. It's actually not a bad way to skip riding on Cumberland Blvd and 41 in Cobb County as it dumps you right by the river. They seem to have built it as cheaply as possible, instead of the smooth concrete it's made of the rough stuff you see in the dog doo picture. But if you want to practice climbing a hill on a mup I'll doubt you'll find a better opportunity in Atlanta. One word of advice, unlike the Palisades West parking lot, there's no charge to park at Cumberland & Interstate North.
