Noonday Creek Trail
The Noonday Creek Trail is a seven-mile off-road and on-road path stretching from the Bells Ferry Trailhead to the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. It is open for walking, cycling, jogging and other non-motorized means to explore our district from a different perspective.
The CID created this trail to celebrate our natural environment, encourage physical activity, and connect neighbors and neighborhoods. The trail is completely paved, making it easy for users of any age to get out of the traffic and experience the flush nature that surrounds where you live and work.
A natural escape, Noonday Creek Trail weaves between Town Center’s major roadways to take you underneath the tree canopy. For most of its length, the trail follows Noonday Creek. At certain points it floats below major roads and bypasses ground level traffic, taking you through flora-lined paths and across pedestrian bridges for a chance to see views of the creek that are otherwise hidden to the everyday passerby.
From the trail, you can reach several destinations throughout the district, such as Aviation Park and Town Center at Cobb shopping mall. It also leads to the trails at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and Marietta’s Mountain to River Trail. The CID helps maintains landscaping, so the trail is always clean, safe and photo-ready. We have installed wayfinding signage along the way, as well as restrooms, water fountains, benches and trash cans.
This trail is one of the many gems Town Center is proud to offer. It’s the perfect setting for your daily excursion, whether you use it for short rambles on your lunch hour, afternoon walks with your dog, group bike rides to campus, or longer weekend treks to connected trail systems.
If you don’t have your own bike, you can still take a ride on the trail!

Busbee Trail is a half-mile multi-use path, suitable for pedestrians and bicyclists. It runs north along Busbee Drive from the CobbLinc transit station and crosses Chastain Road before ending at the Skip Spann Connector. This trail offers a safe alternate route for those traveling from Kennesaw State University’s main campus and parking facilities to Fifth Third Bank Stadium.
Regional Trail Connectivity Plan
Town Center’s trail network is an integral part of Cobb County’s Greenways & Trails Master Plan. This plan will create 207 miles of new trails that connect Cobb’s six cities and natural features such as Lakes Acworth and Allatoona, Kennesaw Mountain and the Chattahoochee River. Its goal is to improve connectivity, mobility and accessibility, comfort and safety, and to encourage more physical activity in our day-to-day lives.
Trail expansions are a priority for all of metro Atlanta. The public has voiced their desire for walking and bicycling highways as a means to exercise and bring communities together. Collaborations between the PATH Foundation, the Atlanta Beltline and others are building more and more trails across the regional landscape. Thanks to these efforts, the future of Atlanta and it’s commuter counties will be more connected than ever.
