Noonday Creek Trail Description

Less than an hour from Atlanta, the Noon Day Creek Trail runs about a mile through the southwestern end of Woodstock, following its namesake tree-lined creek.

At its north end, it directly connects to the Town to Creek Trail, which continues for just over a half-mile into downtown. Just west of this trail intersection is Woofstock Park (150 Dupree Road), an off-leash dog play area, which will one day also serve as a trailhead when the trails connect to it. At the trail’s southern end is Highway 92, which is lined with shops and restaurants.

Another 6-mile portion, located in Cobb County travels along the southern side of Old 41 Highway and up to Bells Ferry Rd between Kenesaw State University and the Cobb Town Center. This trail is part of a proposed multi-use trail network by Cobb County and received various funding from the Town Center Area Community Improvement District (TCACID), Cobb County, Georgia DOT, and the National Park Service.The paved trail is approximately 12 feet wide. Parking is available at both ends and at various points in between.

Parking and Trail Access

Public parking is available off Mill Street and Market Street in downtown Woodstock.

 

(Cobb County) Parking is available at both ends (Kennesaw National Battlefield Park [1201 Old 41 Hwy NW Kennesaw, GA] and at Bells Ferry Road [3001 Bells Ferry Rd NE Marietta, GA ] and at various points in between.

Noonday Creek Trail Reviews

Ran the whole length of the trail. It is well marked and a nice run, but most of it is exposed without any shade cover, along major roads through an industrial district. As a bonus, the trail ends at Kennesaw Mountain, so you can continue your walk/run up to the top of the mountain.

No water along the trail, so bring some money to buy drinks at a store or restaurant along the way.

Bathrooms, etc. are at the Kennesaw Mountain park (and of trail).

I use the trail weekly and do enjoy it. However, it is dangerous to walk by the BIG TREE between Bells Ferry and the mall as it drops dead limbs on the trail, which have nearly struck me in the past.

It's safe and fun and easy to get to!

Good

Would be perfect if there were rest rooms. Kids can't go far and find it easier to go to park and ride the circle because restrooms are close.

We biked this trail from 41 (we parked at a local business, because I wasn't sure where the trail started) to the Bells Ferry parking lot and back, it was awesome!! My only complaint was I need to replace my bicycle seat! It was a great workout with easy and difficult portions of the trail! I can't wait to go back again!

I walked this trail from the parking lot on Bells Ferry to Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield. I missed the sign to cross Cobb Pkwy at Hood Pkwy, and ended up going down to Barrett Pkwy. There are two stretches of the trail that run beside busy highways. There are a couple of busy intersections that have to be crossed as well. There a few hills; but I had no problems with them. The last two miles seemed like they were up hill. I thought it was a great hike.

I LOVE this trail so far. I have not made the full length yet, but have been running it from the Bells Ferry parking lot to about Duncun road. It does go along Barrett Lakes Blvd and there is a lot of traffic going by, but most the trail is nice and quiet.

Not sure why the first reviewer calls it "not kid friendly". Seems like common sense to make sure your children know how to properly walk on the sidewalk and making sure you are holding on to their hands if you are walking along side a road. Seems irresponsible on the parent to let their 6 year old do something so dangerous. Complaining about the hills seems pretty petty as well. There's other people that use it for training. If you want your kids safe, take them to park and playgrounds that the county provides.

Anyways, I have walked this trail a good few times when it first opened and I really enjoy walking my dog on this trail. I love taking in the scenery and just enjoying being outside. The path is well paved and the trail is very clean. Yes, they are still doing some construction on some parts, but it'll be temporary. It's well done and I'm impressed. I hope to walk it through all the way.

Although the scenery is great and the fact that it is 6 miles one way is nice, this trail is not very kid friendly. A huge portion of the trail is up and down hill while also being next to very busy open highways and streets. After the first mile, we had to turn around because our 6 yr old kept getting dangerously close to falling into oncoming traffic.
