Granite Retaining Walls line Trail on Hugh Howell Road

Building trails includes more than pouring concrete. Especially when doing so through an existing community. Just like sections of the trail in Downtown Tucker, the trail along Hugh Howell Road required digging into the sloping hillside to accommodate the path. Rather than leaving a bare concrete wall, the City of Tucker added a granite façade. Eventually the trail, and an assortment of granite retaining walls, will lead residents to Stone Mountain Park. The largest mass of exposed granite in the world.
