Akers Mill Trail
Connecting communities to the best of what Cumberland has to offer
Akers Mill Road is a major traffic artery through Cumberland. The corridor connects Cumberland’s business district to residential communities and natural assets in the Chattahoochee River National Recreational Area (CRNRA).
As multifamily communities began to develop along Akers Mill Road, so did the need for a pedestrian-friendly path to connect to Cumberland’s business district and recreational amenities.
In 2009, the Cumberland CID initiated plans to study a proposed trail along the eastern part of Akers Mill Road. By 2013, the Cumberland CID, and its partners, were ready to break ground on the Akers Mill Trail.
