Men walk on the rocks in the Chattahoochee River below the City Mills dam near Columbus, Ga. Leaders of a national land trust say a river that runs through metro Atlanta holds the key to realizing a grand vision for outdoor enthusiasts. They aim to create an extension of the Appalachian Trail that would allow hikers to traverse the mountains from Maine to north Georgia, then continue on in a canoe or kayak to the Gulf of Mexico.
