the Mountain to River Trail

More than 15 years in the making, the Mountain to River trail stretches from Kennesaw Mountain, continues along the Marietta Square, and ends at the City limits on Atlanta Street. It serves as the backbone for future growth of Marietta's planned trail system which will connect residents, pedestrians, and cyclists from across the City of Marietta.  Even better, the Mountain to River Trail will connect separated trail systems from across Cobb County.
