Just a quick reminder that Allatoona Creek does NOT open until 10 AM, 7 days a week, from now through 10/31 to allow for hunting. Furthermore the trails will be closed completely for the months of November and December. The trails reopen 1/1/13.
There have been some riders pretending to not see the hour signage and there is concern that this abuse could lead to a negative view of MTB riders in the eyes of Cobb government officials.
Please honor the restrictions and pass word of them on to you friends. The hunting access is part of the agreement that Cobb County has with the Corp Of Engineers on the lease of this property. Cobb Parks and Recreations and particularly Cobb Land Manager John Purcell have been instrumental in the rapid development of this trail system. So we in the MTB community need to pay them back with good citizenship and assure future cooperation through playing by the rules.
FYI - Allatoona has recently been awarded a significant grant from REI for continued trail expansion so stay tuned for some serious trail building efforts in 2013.
