Rottenwood Creek Trail is part of a larger effort by the City of Marietta and its partners to expand the current trail network by developing a connection piece between the Mountain to River Trail and the Bob Callan Trail. This trail will create an east-west connection between Kennesaw Mountain and the Chattahoochee River.
The project is currently divided into two phases. Phase I begins at Alumni Drive on the Kennesaw State University-Marietta campus and travels east to Franklin Gateway at the Franklin Gateway Sports Complex. This portion is nearing completion of its engineering and design phase with construction estimated to begin in 2022. Phase II begins on Franklin Gateway and travels south and east across I-75, terminating at the intersection of Delk and Bentley Roads, and ultimately tying into the Bob Callan trailhead at Terrell Mill Rd. This portion of the trail is currently within the scoping phase.
