The directions to get here are a little off; after
making a left on 138 and going about 4 miles, you
turn *right* at the signs for the horse park, and
go about a mile or so. The bike shop where you park
is actually in the middle of the horse park; follow
the outer looping road until you see signs for it.

This is a tough little trail as far as stamina; it's
twisty enough that you can't use you downhill speed
for an assist on the uphills very often. But there's
a great diversity of terrain -- stream crossings, open
fields, and even a hundred or so yards of flat stone
at one point. Very interesting. Some nice scenic
views too. There is a parking fee, but it's worth
it for a nice, varied, well-maintained trail. And it's
actually a lot closer to Atlanta than many of the
trails in the mountains up north.

There are two separate trails; one a little less
demanding then the other. The less demanding trail,
(in my opinion), starts across the street from the
horse stables; plenty of single track 50% up and down
grading, and some deep bush surroundings make this ride
very exciting! I rate thses set of trials less demanding because big jumps and severe drop-offs will
not be part of this ride. Depending on how fast you take some of the down hill sections will depend of your
riding level. But beginner to advance riders will enjoy
this 4 to 6 mile loop.
The more difficult loop starts down the road from the horse stables and includes, (at times some pretty hairy
drop-offs), and some steep climbs! This loop is about
3.5 miles. I recommend intermed-advance riders tackle
this loop.

A HOLE LOT of hills. The hole time up and down. It is also pretty technical.I wouldnt try riding it in the middle of the summer because you could dehydrate easly. You sould be very careful on the big granit rock after it has rained because it can get very slippery.

This is a fun trail. It cuts back and forth between a wooded area and an open area resemebling the strips of land that power lines occupy. You can still see many of the photographers stands from the olympics. Warning: it can be very hot once you come out of the woods, bring plenty of cold water, and have some water in you car too. There is a very fun short steep downhill that loops back to the main trail. You may want to get off the bike and take a quick look before you barrell down it! Also most of the downhill/rough sections [which really are not very difficult] have red "warning" arrows. The most fun parts of this trail are a few "drop offs" that are between a foot to three feet or less. Make sure you have some speed before jumping down. Overall a very fun trail - definitely worth checking out.

Try the side with the white fences. This will be on your right, as you turn off of 138.

Even though it is in another state, I would recommend to ANYONE who enjoys mtn biking to check out Hard Rock In Ocala FL. You will NOT be disappointed. So far in Atlanta, I have ridden in Dahlenoga [sp?], Sope creek Unicoi in Helen, and Conyers. I would consider Ocala more difficult thatn any of these trails. Also check out Santos park in Bellevue, whcih is about 5 miles from Hardrock

This trail has a lot of potential. A lot of it is overgrown, none of it is maintained. They charge $5.00 per person to ride it. since none of the money goes into maintenance, I recomend bootlegging it. Park outside the park and ride in.

You can get about a 9 mile ride by taking the loop on the south side of the access road plus the loop on the north side. It has a fun combination of short uphills, downhills, twsity wooded sections, a bit of open field areas, and bare rock face sections. I found it to be really fun, but wish it was twice as long!

Interstate 20 to "GA International Horse Park" exit, take 138 north, see GA IHP entrance on right.

it says i only rode it once, but it was for the 24 hours of adrenalin in oct of 99. our team won and i did 6 laps. the course has everything a mtbiker could want: smooth twisty single track, roots, rocks, stream crossings, and that sweet moab of the east rock section. i for one hope this trail remains open because i have friends here that want to make a road trip.

This is the worst course in Ga. Up the hill, down the hill, wind around and see everyone else on other parts of the course. Why this was chosen for the Olympics, I don't know when there are so many great rides just to the north. The race is also one of the worst organized ever.

I ride this trail a lot. Parking is free, no one cares anymore. (I even pulled up after a ride and about 5 police cars were there, no one said anything to me.) The right side, across from the golf course, is ridden most often. It has a lost of extremely though hills, but fun downhills.

The right side with the granite not as challenging, but just as fun. There is also an old trail that isn't kept up at all since hardly anyone rides it anymore; to ride it, after you finish the granite downhill and come across a horse trail, take a right and go straight back up the granite, if you see a fence, and then a big pile of trash, you're on the right track. Only try this if you have rode here a couple of times because it is kind of hard to find. Watch out for the sticker bushes and tree limbs though.

This is a great trail and I recommend anyone to at least try it once. I see deer just about everytime I go there, so that's cool. This is for experienced bikers with good bikes (front shoks are neccesary going down the granite). If you are just beginning, try the horse trails.

Customer Service

If you want tough long hills try the left side. The right side (golf course side) has the granite, wich is fun for a change.
