running at Cochran Shoals

The Chattahoochee River is my favorite place to trail run close to Atlanta. Its only about 20 minutes away, but offers enough terrain for me to get in a trail run. The trails are diverse, mainly single track, and add in slight elevation gains. My favorite is Cochran Shoals, where I did most of my training for my first few trail races.
