Simply the Worst. The Beach still maintains its #1 on my Worst Trail System list. Poorly maintained trails, no signage, no length, no flow, and no technical features. Boring and a mess. If you live next door, go ahead. If you live more than a mile away, don't bother.

Customer Service

Bypass it altogether. Seriously, this is as bad as bad gets.

The single track is fun, full of U dips and short steep climbs. Beware of the hairpin turns and tight trees. The single track on the parking side is barely blazed, without a tire track this Sat morning in the pine needles.

The far side offers more of a mix and travels through larger ridges, allowing a little more speed. Some of the double track extends for hundres of yards, offering a nice change of pace and some speed opps.

It's a quick 20 minutes from Midtown Atl - 4th Jonesboro exit off 75, straight, park entrance on the left. The lake lot referenced on the map is the first turn off.

There was one other rider on a Saturday morning, and no pedestrians, so definitely a nice change from Sope Creek.

Customer Service

Loop around and take the parking side single track twice. Do some double passes meandering around the mixed single and double on the far side.

Beginner trails have mad speed. They are fun to start off with. The advanced trails (marked in red) are fun.
Keep your hands on your brakes when you ride those. Always look ahead or you'll be in for it.
WARNING: look at the map posted, maybe even print it out if you go. You might run into a fence. HEHEHE

Red - Not as technical as many riders would like, but a little steep and designed to keep you off balance.

Blue - My favorite; very fast, good transitions to other areas, and just tough enough for a good hard three hour workout.

Green - these paths take you to the other parts of the course. Good for the cool down.

I give the course a five because it is well taken care of, there aren't two hundred people on it at 9am on a Tuesday (like Sope Creek), and it is fast.

Customer Service

Ride red trails first. These are fun and easy enough to ride and enjoy but not so difficult as to be clasified as double diamonds. Then spool up and go full bore on the blue/green. You can navigate the entire outer perimeter of the course quickly. Good workout.

Nice singletrack that's not as challenging on the navigation skills as the main trails, eg. it's one way with no options. Recommended route is down from the entrace to the parking lot, but would be fun the other way too. Nice jump at the parking lot end, but beware of the downhill deadend into a fence just after that.

Customer Service

3 new miles of trails starting at the park entrance on the left side and ending at the parking lot.

I just want to say thank you to Jim Huff and Co. for reconnecting the trail across the street so soon after part of it was bulldozed.

Customer Service


The Greens and Blues are great for a warm-up.
Hit the Reds for a good test, and go across the road from the parking lot for a helluva time.

Great trails that are well kept. Good mix of fields and forest, flats and hills. If you live nearby this is a great trail to ride. Also a good place to start out and work your way up the different trails. Good for any riders. If your in the area give it a try, you won't be dissappointed.

Customer Service

Get off at Stock Bridge Exit just south of Southlake Mall. Turn Right and continue to the parks entrance on the left.

I recently moved from Texas, and haven't ridden in months. As a fat out of shape slob, I found the trails a good combination of fun twisties and breath robbing climbs mixed with connections to the green routes to catch my breath.

I was surprised that the red routes weren't even more challenging. The most challenging spot on the trail is on a blue route where you drop steeply with a tight off camber turn to cross a bridge and the make a steep climb out of the gully.

Great fun for everyone...even out of shape fat slobs!

Green is nice for warm-up's and getting used to the trail.

The blue is by far my fav and the one that I reccomend to all.

Red is nice, but ride it only when familiar w/the trial

Overall, nice singletrack, and good location for folks in the south metro area!!

Customer Service

Ride it slow the very first time and pay attention to everything--then, ride again, but faster rembering everything about the trail you can. Be careful of sharp turns!!
