The Friends of Carrollton GreenBelt broke ground on Phase Four of the Carrollton GreenBelt at Hobbs Farm in December. This phase of the GreenBelt will include over one mile of trail and will connect to the existing trail at Lake Carroll. Hobbs Farm is a 200-acre city-owned park that includes 100 acres of pristine wetlands, Little Tallapoosa River frontage, and many more environmental attributes. The City of Carrollton is currently building a restroom facility at the trailhead parking area.
Once this phase is complete, the Friends of Carrollton GreenBelt anticipate this trail will be one of the most popular sections of the GreenBelt. “We have had our eye on this phase of the Carrollton GreenBelt since we began construction in 2011,” stated Laura Richards, Chair of the Friends of Carrollton GreenBelt. “We are excited to bring this phase online and feel like it will be one of the most special sections of the GreenBelt trail network.” Completion of this phase is anticipated for early Spring.
