Alpharetta YMCA Beginners Trail - Trail, Alpharetta, Georgia

DESCRIPTION

Beginner's trail. Extremely easy. I helped RAMBO build it and we didn't make anything that would be difficult. Mostly level singletrack with about 3 easy switchbacks.

Pretty basic, short trail. As said before, the outer loop is a flat, windy path through some sparse woods. You ride past a cow pasture, and around a large hill, that the blue trail leads up to.

The blue trail is a little more challenging, with a couple obstacles towards the top, and a picnic table to take a break if you wish (not that you'd need to)

Overall, I think it's a fun little trail. I take my cyclocross bike on it and ride it as fast as I can. It's a nice change from the trails at the other end of the greenway.

Customer Service

Start on the outer trail once around, then head into the blue trail on your second loop through. Then do it all again until you're done.

Great for younger riders who are looking for a great starting point, my sister a 9 year old rides the upper and lower just fine and she loves it.

This is a nice trail if you have never riddend a mountain bike before. Extremely easy. Mosquitos were the biggest problmem when I was out there. The area is pretty flat except for a decent size hill you get to climb.

Customer Service

Go up the hill thats the best part of this ride.

Mansell is the only other trail to ride on that's in Alpharetta. You can also check out the Park off of Mansell heading east off GA400. Turn right next to the Sears Factory Warehouse. This is mostly paved good for easy relaxed rides.

This trail is a short training loop consisting of many twists and turns to maximize the available area. The outer loop is easy, the inner loop slightly more challenging. Try several loops to get a decent workout. Also the outer loop is a good place for beginners to get started. It was designed as a basic urban trail to allow riding within the city limits -GREAT for what it is, but go to N.Ga. if you want technical. Come here if you only have an hour after work and want to get in some mountain biking.

Customer Service

Follow the signs. Pedestrians and bikers go in opposite directions. One way in/out so impossible to get lost (unless you get stuck in the infinite loop).

This is the only trail I have found in the area near my workplace. It is a good short trail that I can hit at lunch time for a little fun and excercise. The lower loop is relatively flat with only a few easy switch backs. The Blue loop takes you up a fairly steep incline leading to a picnic table and rest area at the top of the hill. The down hill route is pretty quick and has multiple turns and switchbacks. The trail overall has a few technicals for the beginners (stumps, roots & rocks). I will definitely be riding this trail on a regular basis.

Customer Service

Start on the lower loop (green) as a warm up and then hit the upper loop (blue) for a slightly more aggressive ride.

This is a fun ride. Not too difficult, but closer to me than Blankets Creek. I took exit 10 to North Point Parkway. Much shorter than following the directions posted here if you come from the northside of town.

Customer Service

Warm up on the Green trail and then go for the blue

Excellent relaxing long paved trail. Altough the directions there could be better. If you go up GA 400 to Exit 10, Old Milton Parkway, turn Right off the exit Northpoint Parkway is a light or so up, make a Left. The sign for the YMCA is another light down on the Right.
