Mill Creek - TRAIL

Mill Creek - Trail, Statesboro, Georgia

There are countless loops and options on this challenging terrain. Exploring every single trail would take a long time. It is fairly difficult stuff. Lots of tight turns and very narrow singletrack. I will enter 10 miles for length, but there are so many different crisscrossing trails that the ride can be as long as you want.

This trail is functionally dead. Adjacent subdivision has wiped out the tree-farm. Many of the side trails have grown over due to lack of use. Only a few main trails remain, mostly used by motorcycles judging from the tracks.

Just bored on the weekends and needed to find some where to ride and came across this forum. Rode this trail yesterday in the rain. It consists of some quad tracks that havent been ridden in a while. There are some single tracks however and many interwinding trails. There are some short climbs and I came across a huge washout about 10 feet across that was a little difficult and a few downed trees. I was riding for about an hour and barely covered 1/4 of the land. I entend to go back soon but with a cast on from a dislocated thumb and broken wrist im limited to how hard I can ride.

I agree that this trail can get swamped after it rains. A buddy and I headed over to the trail on August 14th 2007 after a torrent the previous evening. We entered off of Jones Mill Road and when we entered the lower section we immediately had to pull an about face due to the quad rutts were completely submerged. So off in the other direction we headed. About 200 yards from the entrance all the quad trails disappear leaving open woods. However, as soon as I rode past the end of the trails I rode through a yellow jacket nest and proceeded to get nailed by at least 9 of them before I was able to get far enough away. But for your amusement, I had bailed off my bike before I knew what was setting my legs on fire and was forced to reenter the war zone to retriever my ride home. Anyway, next time I am going to try going in through the Mill Creek entrance because I an not going near the Jones Mill Road entrance again.

The description for this trail is way off. I have found no single track, only trails from quads and a few 2 tracks. It's almost all easy terrain, with small elavation changes, but nothing I would call a hill. There are lots of intertwining trails, you could easily spend 2 hours riding here trying to follow them all. There are some low areas, and after rain it's possible to find 2+ feet of water in them. But the majority of the trails don't flood out. This area looks to have once been a popular place to go. The northern part of the property has a number of dirt jumps, but it appears no one has touched them in quite a few years. There are also at least a dozen different trails that 4 wheelers have made throught the area, but appear to have sat unused for sometime as well. Some are very overgrown, although most are easily passed on a mountain bike. If people would actually come ride here there is potential to make it a great place. Yes it lacks technicality, but a few twisty single tracks an a coule of bridges could make for a fun trail. Directions here: Mill Creek is located on Highway 24 heading east out of Statesboro. You can't miss it, it's the huge park just out of town. Park there and head west (back towards town). There is only 1 light at the north west corner of the park, this is for Beasley Road. You want to head south (left) on that till you come to a 4 way stop sign. Head west (right) on this road, which is Jones Road. All the woods on the right-hand side is the area, it's marked as a tree farm. There are a number of different trails entering the woods. If you stay on Jones till you get almost to the 301 Bypass there is a wide trail with a cable across it to keep cars out. Taking this in will keep you in the high and dry area. The trails before it are sometimes muddy / flooded. I rated aerobic difficulty as a 3 only because there are some elevation changes, and you aren't just riding along a nice paved / gravel path. These are trails, so there is sometimes soft soil and it gets your heart pumping. For technical difficulty, there's really nothing but a few downed trees to deal with. I hope to get some nice single tracks through the area eventually. I rated it as a 3 overall simply because there is nothing else in this area to ride, which makes this trail that much

Similar Products Used: Nothing in Bulloch County. If you want dirt under your tires this is the only area to get it. Seems like everyone here rides road bikes.

Once is an overstatement. I traveled up there and found the park with little trouble. Now, I see why there are no reviews. I couldn't find the trail. I rode my bike all around the park, even into the surrounding woods...nothing. I asked a park attendant and he didn't even know of any trails other than the paved trail around the park. The one plus about that is the view (college girls) walking around the park. I did see an area that could have been it at one time but there was a lot of new housing developments and a school in the area. I did a little driving around and found a tree farm down Jones Mill Creek Rd. Is that where this trail is supposed to be?
