Paulding SORBA Keeps Paulding Beautiful at Mount Tabor Mountain Bike Park

ImageOn April 25th, Paulding SORBA partnered with Comcast Cable for Keep Paulding Beautiful, a community-wide volunteer effort. 50 volunteers from Comcast joined Paulding SORBA to build the Mount Tabor Gateway Trail project, logging an impressive 141 hours of trail work that day! Thanks to their effort, the first loop is now 90% complete. After a hard morning of work the crew and volunteers were treated to a Chick-Fil-A lunch.

Paulding SORBA Trail Crew Leaders Dave Senecal, Scott Martin, TJ Jacobs, Tom Hutchinson, John Miller, Steve Houghton and Cres Summers led the volunteers in their work, while Peggy Grimes & Derek Boyd manned the registration and communication tent. SORBA Woodstock pitched in by loaning their tools. Although the crew from Comcast was new, not only to trail building, but to the sport of mountain biking, they dug right in, and enjoyed creating this asset for their community.

 

NPS Seeks Input on Proposed Bridge at Morgan Falls

The National Parks Service Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area has begun the Environmental Assessment for a proposed bridge across the Chattahoochee River at the Morgan Falls Dam at the Cobb and Fulton County borders. The bridge would be constructed as a free span bridge over the Chattahoochee River and would connect visitors to the Sandy Springs' Great Park at Morgan Falls with National Park Service land in Cobb County below Hyde Farm. This bridge would link into existing and proposed trails that might one day make it possible for walkers and cyclists to go from Cobb County to Forsythe County on a network of dirt and paved trails. The NPS is accepting comments on the proposed bridge through May 27, 2009. You can email comments to CHAT_superintendent@nps.gov.
