Cochran Mill - Trail, Douglasville/South Fulton, Georgia

Cochran Mill - Trail, Douglasville/South Fulton, Georgia

DESCRIPTION

Horse trails. Level and flat near the creeks. Rocky and slightly steeper on the hill sides. Some mud after rains (duh) but your tire marks may be the only ones out there. The trails have been used mostly by horsey people till now. Sunday I rode for two hours with my dogs and did not see another cyclist on the trails. Did see deer tracks, water fall, enough woods to get severely lost. There are numerous places where a 'get off' is necessary for me due to fallen logs or technical rocky/rooty areas. The beauty of the place is that it is untamed and large and close to town.

Over the past few years, many hours of work have been put into this trail system by a great group of people...and it has now become one of the best mountain bike trail systems on the south side of Atlanta. While it is still multi-use trails, mountain bikers are the main users of these trails. The trails range from smooth and flowy with some climbing (the yellow trail) to steeper rockier climbs (red trail). There are about 18 miles of trails that make up Cochran Mill and they are well maintained.

For a barely a novice, this is an excellent trail....for the most part. Great trails but be prepared for a couple of places with to many logs to ride over.....looking into clearing these. The directions on this site are sound as is the trail description. However, We enter the trail from the parking lot right side tree line. From there, you can loop back or cross the pasture and make your way to the creek. If you go right (after the creek) be prepared for some good up hill battles....this part of the trail needs some tending to but the trail does end...(found out the hard way...lost) Back track and go left after the creek and good technicals and will bring you back around. All in all .... good trail.

After posting my review, I did a search for CMP. The top item was an article showing that the local municipalities were campaigning to use 350 acres of this area for a reservoir. Classic development ignorance in action.
Anyway, go ride. For tomorrow, you might not be able to.

To start with only ride these trails when it is dry and has been dry for a long time. When the area is wet I would give it a 1 but I am giving it a dry rating. There are trails on both sides of the road. There are two types of trails in this area wide and flat and technical horse trails. To get to the best trails fallow the dirt road that goes past the parking area. Go until there is a foot bridge and trail the trail on the right just to the other side of the bridge. Once in the big field go to the far end and look for a small trail that may have a sign with an H on it. Follow this trail untill you cross the big creek. From here the trail makes a circle but it is best to go right up the hill. This trail leads to the best water fall in the area. There are many ATV trails out side of park property that can be riden, but it is best to stay off of them, trust me.

The other route is for people coming from Atlanta. To get to this area from south of Atlanta(Newnan)exit I-85 at exit 56. Go towards Palmetto and turn right onto Hwy29. Go into town of Palmetto, and turn left at red light in center of town and stay to the left until you get to Hutcheson Fy RD and bear right. Go less than 2 miles and turn right onto Cochran Mill Road. You will see the park after a few miles into the middle of no where.
