More exciting news for Lyerly, the town was recently awarded a grant of $99,700.00 from the Georgia
Department of Natural Resources-Recreational Trails Grant Program. The money will be used for improvements and access points on the Lower Chattooga River Canoe/Kayak Trail which starts in Lyerly at the Lyerly Dam Bridge. The trail will be 7.5 miles long and have three access points. Construction of the trail has been a joint venture of the Town of Lyerly and Chattooga County and the Coosa River Basin Initiative also recently became a partner on the project.
