Bundle Up and Explore Woodstock's Great Outdoors!

Written by Stacy Brown

February is a great time to explore the outdoors. Woodstock has a wonderful network of trails that are used for recreation, fitness, and even commuting.

Through our partnership with Woodstock Elementary, the WellStar Community Health Trail provides a quarter mile asphalt walking surface in the grove of trees in front of the campus. The trail is open to the community outside of school hours.

The Noonday Creek Trail, which is 1.5 miles long, connects downtown Woodstock to Highway 92 and has a beautiful bridge that spans Noonday Creek to connect to Woofstock Dog Park. The trail is accessed in downtown Woodstock on Market Street or from the dog park. Woodstock’s Noonday Creek Trail will eventually connect to Cobb County’s Noonday Creek Trail, which currently terminates near Bells Ferry Road. This trail includes Zagster bike rental stations at the dog park and at the downtown trailhead.

The Towne Lake Pass Trail connects Towne Lake to Woofstock Dog Park, traveling along Towne Lake Hills South from Towne Lake Parkway toward Woodstock High and Middle Schools. Near the school complex, the trail has a turn that goes into the woods, then follows the Noonday Creek corridor under I-575 to Woofstock Dog Park. This trail is nearly 2 miles long.

The Rubes Creek Trail is a .75 mile trail that starts off Arnold Mill Road near Fire Station 14. This 10-foot-wide multiuse trail will eventually be part of the downtown loop. Zagster bike rental stations are also available at this trailhead.

Located at Olde Rope Mill Park, the Taylor Rahdahl Memorial Mountain Bike Trails are made up of three trails, totaling 14 miles. From advanced XC to smooth flow lines, the single-track trails offer something for everyone. While they are built for mountain biking, hikers and runners are welcome to enjoy the natural beauty, too.

The Trestle Rock Trail runs alongside Little River in Olde Rope Mill Park. This .5 mile concrete multiuse trail is essentially flat and features great views of the river and the ruins of the rope mill water diversion chute.

The Dupree Park Family Mountain Bike Trails are beginner friendly with a wide, smooth trail tread. Meant to be fun at slower speeds, the park includes a short bike skills trail that provides technical features designed to teach balance, control, and bike handling. These trails are excellent for children and novice off-road riders as well as those getting back on the bike after a long hiatus.
