Olympic Beach Volleyball Trail - TRAIL

Olympic Beach Volleyball Trail - Trail, Jonesboro, Georgia

Excellent beginner to intermediate to expert trail about 5-6 miles in length. Easy to moderate climbs throughout the trail through hardwoods and pines. Excellent trail close to Atlanta that provides a moderate workout. For a full workout ride the trail and then turn around and ride the complete trail back for a 11 mile trail.

I went to this trail to see what else is near my home. I leave in EAV, East Atlanta Village, and usually go to the Horse Park or drive down to Dausset Trails. The ride is pretty good but no a lot of areas for speed or technical maneuvers, unless I missed something, but overall not bad for a beginner to intermediate ride.

Thanks to some hard work from the Southern Crescent chapter of SORBA these trails are once again in good shape. There are over 6 miles of marked single track with a few short but steep climbs. This is a great beginner to intermediate trail thats close to Atlanta.

I wish we could merge forums ( this one also applies to this trail)... at least it's not as bad as the 4 separate threads for the GHIP Olympic MTB Trail in Conyers...

I rode it again on March 25... Big thanks to the person who connected the trails near the tennis court parking lot! It's much more ridable now. And, my offer still stands to help anyone who wants to take on repairing and adding to the west and south of the tennis courts.

I rode the east side of the trails, too. They're pretty slippery, what with not being heavily used and having a load of leaves over pine straw. There are a handful of downed trees blocking the trails. And, there's some obvious flood fallout, though it hasn't really impacted the ridability of the trails. It just washed a lot of leaves and some light debris to the bottom of the dip.

With a few of weekends of clearing, building and chainsawing, we really could restore much of what the senior center and tennis courts claimed.

Find what looks like a trail, and ride it.

I just rode this last Sunday, and it's kind of a mess with the senior center construction. First, I'm still indebted to the trail builders and maintainers, particularly for not giving up after the tennis courts were built (and given that they're probably the builders of 138 Trails I & II, which still rank as #1 and #2 in my list). With that said, I think I can re-work most of my old favorite route into what's left. I'll be back, and I'll be clearing the spider webs for the next rider. (seriously, I had a mostly-complete web snagged between my left grip and frame with the spider and prey still in it for about half a mile... no, I didn't kill the spider... bad mojo!) Once the senior center is done, I'd be glad to volunteer to reconnect that part of the trail to complete the loop again. Heck, there's still areas for new trails (138 II was a masterpiece of trail maximization in a small area). And, the super-sketchy singletrack along the pond is still intact along with the trail on the other side of the road!

Customer Service

Huh... your mileage will vary... From the parking lot, ride out and hit the trail on the east side of the double-lane road. Head north and loop back south for a surprisingly good singletrack descent. Go back across to the parking lot, enter trail and take the advanced routes. Once you get to the west side of the pond, you're on your own.

Excellent trail that covers all levels of riding skills. The red trail will give you a good workout with several hilly sections while the green trail allows beginning riders to experience the woods.

Customer Service

From the parking lot the trail head is easy to find. Follow the arrows and the course is easy to follow.

Jim and the rest of the guys have done a great job on these trails and Drew, Jason, David, Westley, Jarrod (all from the Bike Center in Stockbridge) and many others night ride them regularly.

Customer Service

From the parking lot, take the short single track behind it and warm up, then go down the road with the lake on your right and climb the hill on the right and get busy.

I thought the red trails were technically challenging and a lot of fun. The blue sections were bumpy and winding with few climbs and decents. The green is easy but fast. This it not necessarily the place for leg burning workouts but its good for a joy ride, I'll go back. There is a beach and picnic areas too.

Customer Service

Trails are tightly packed, you can't get lost.

The park is a first class park for swinmming and of course Volleyball. The mountain bike trails are fairly well marked in most places. The Red Trail that is marked for Experts, is not that technical. The trails are well groomed.

Customer Service

Recommend the Red Trail for advanced intermediate's, Blue Trail for intermediate's, and Green Tail for beginners.

Similar Products Used: Highly recommend The Oxford Bike Shop Trail.

Good trails close. Fun for all ages. The guys who maintain them are my heros. When I talked to the park administrator he recomended that I park at the area I described!! He said that way I could ride after the park closes and not have my car locked in. He then inveted me to ride all I want after the park closes. At night??? Absolutely!!! He's thrilled to have us help keep the rifraf out. Ive been riding since the early days (1984) and never heard of anything like this. Break out your headlights boyz, we have a place to ride this winter!! yeehaw Two chlies for the trail, ten chilies for the guys who made it and the administrator. I love you man

Customer Service

Go past the park entrance and turn left at crane road. Go south until you reach a stop sign at the far end of the park. There is nice shaded parking on your left. Ride north on crane rd. There are several places to dive into the park. This saves a parking fee.
