The Kennesaw Mountain to Chattahoochee River Trail, more commonly known as the Mountain to River or M2R trail aims to be Marietta's connection between two NPS units, the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and the Chattahooche River Recreation Area.
Starting from the northern endpoint at the Kennesaw Battlefields National Park, the trail heads south in Marietta along a combination of off-road trails and on-road bike lanes. While the route through Marietta can be confusing, most of the route is marked with signage and maps labeled M2R at convenient locations along the way. An impressive and colorful bridge takes us over the North Marietta Pkwy NW.
At Brown Park, the trail ends for a moment before quickly picking back up about a half a mile further south along Atlanta Rd. SE. This section of the trail (sometimes called the Atlanta Road Path) follows Atlanta Rd. NW for over 3 miles until reaching Spring Road in Smyrna.
The trail here verges east and continues for nearly 3 miles along Spring Rd. once again with signage guiding users, although different signage is used as trail users move into the City of Smyrna. These signs use the full name, "Kennesaw Mountains to Chattahoochee River Trail". This is where the M2R trail connects with the Akers Mill Trail.
Parking is available at the visitor center for Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park (900 Kennesaw Mountain Drive) and in downtown Marietta in Brown Park (358 West Atlanta St SE).
