East Cobb has something for the entire family to enjoy. Get everyone involved in a friendly competition with a race at Andretti Indoor Karting & Games. Several public parks give kids the opportunity to run and play to their hearts’ desire. Sope Creek Trail offers over three miles of scenic hiking, mountain biking, and running trails. The park’s extensive network of trails explore the stone ruins of a paper mill destroyed by Union troops during the Civil War, now standing in multi-story, castle-like ruins. There’s plenty to do on the Chattahoochee River, fishing, trail and bike trails, and floating the “Hooch” in a raft, kayak or innertube.
