Natural Resources Program
Cobb's outdoor program offers many opportunities for you to enjoy nature. Educational programs are offered for all ages. Trails are available for hiking, jogging and cycling. Natural parks provide an opportunity to explore nature.
Whether you want outdoors for exercise, education or adventure, we have something just for you.
Cobb County Department of Transportation (DOT) has several trail networks with proposals for a countywide system to connect major areas of the county. This network of trails accommodates pedestrians and bicyclists while providing transportation alternatives to ease congestion. Although portions of the trail system are recreational, they provide connectivity between cities, access to regional activity centers, and a healthy commuting option for travelers who wish to avoid the congestion of some county thoroughfares.
