The Roswell Riverwalk trail begins near the intersection of Riverside and Dogwood and Old Alabama roads, in Roswell, GA. Much of the trail is paved, but parts are pea gravel.
I get to the Roswell Riverwalk using the multipurpose trail along Martin's road. Along Martin's road, there is a bike trail, but I find the trail to be much more relaxing and peaceful. To me, often it is the overall peacefulness of the experience that matters than the how quickly I get to a destination. So, taking the slower and more enjoyable route works great for me.
A very cool bride over the Chattahoochee. This is part of the Riverwalk.
Still on the Riverwalk.
When we started house-hunting in Roswell, I remember looking at some homes on Shallowford Road. I didn't quite know the significance of the name then, but now I do.
Nicely constructed system!
Chattahoochee Nature Center. I wanted to check out this place, ever since I first laid eyes on Roswell (on Google Maps). My dream of riding to this place finally became true. I was overjoyed! Actually, I rode further past the Nature Center, on Willeo, just so I can reach the next county; Cobb County!
Drum Circle on some Friday nights. I haven't been to one, yet, but I bet it is a lot of fun.
There are several points at which one can join the Riverwalk, which is a 7 mile long linear park. Here is a parking lot, at one such a point.
I don't claim to know much about history, but I learned a bunch by reading the information boards along the way. Here is one that caught my eye - Roswell is situated on what was once part of the Cherookee Nation.
Upon returning home, I noticed that I rode about 18 miles, in all. This has, by far, been the longest ride I have undertaken in Roswell. I had a wonderful time on the Riverwalk and I hope I can do it again, soon. I also plan to walk at least 10 miles of it someday soon. I just have to get my nephew to go with me, for both inspiration and for catching up.
That's all for now.
