Cochran Shoals, Island Ford, Vickery Creek, or any of the other 12 land units along the river? Join the volunteer hiking patrol for the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. The goal of this program is to provide an additional set of eyes and ears for park staff along the 48- mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River. The volunteers will receive 12 hours of training, including CPR & First Aide certification, to assist park visitors with safety, first aid when necessary, and information and resource protection reminders. Each member of the hiking patrol team will also, receive training on minor trail maintenance. This program will help create a safer and more enjoyable experience for the more than 3 million park visitors at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
