Best parking is near MP# 21-22 (SCT) at the Paulding County Government Complex, 240 Constitution Blvd., Dallas, Georgia. The site has the Sheriff's Department, Jail, Court House, County Admin. Building and a busy Veterans Park and is well lighted and patrolled. There are electrical post near the Park. The parking lot is 0.8 miles west (north of 278 Hwy), of the Drummond Trail Head with a concrete path.
There are a few bathrooms and welcome centers along the way, but they may not be open 24 hours. There is a private campground and bathroom at the Chief Ladiga Trail Head end, (MP#33,Alabama).
