McIntosh Reserve - Trail, Whitesburg, Georgia

McIntosh Reserve - Trail, Whitesburg, Georgia

DESCRIPTION

There are several interconnecting trails here, and truly in a perfect world the best way to cover them is to bump into a local rider (thanks David). The hand drawn map they have at the RS isn't any help. One starts to the left of the restrooms there by the RS. Go up the hill, go right then left and then your on your own. If you stay basically straight you can get a 6-7 mile ride that brings you to the south side of the big meadow. The total trails length is listed as 15 miles. There is a level path down along the Chattahoochee that is a nice cool down, following the river for the length of the meadow. These trails are fast and fun, great intermediate, short ups and downs, but a beginner could probably dab through them. Sandy in spots, a bit muddy in others, but hey that's mountain biking!

The last time I was at McIntosh Reserve was 3 or 4 years ago and the trails were really torn up by the horses and for that reason I stopped going. I was back there last week for the first time since then and I was pleasantly surprised at how the trails have recovered. The people at McIntosh Reserve have done some significant work and also some re-routing of the trails. While McIntosh doesn't compare to trails up north as far as technicality, it will still give the beginner to intermediate rider a decent workout (besides, there is not much to choose from if you don't want to drive far to ride off road in Newnan and Peachtree City). Yes, it still costs $2.00 to ride if you live outside of Carroll County.

Nice, lazy, scenic trails for beginners that follows the hooch a bit (good place to take newbies). If you are looking for something challenging GO NORTH, there is nothing difficult about this trail except dodging the road apples.

Chances are if you are serious enough to be on this website reading about trails, that this trail isn't serious enough for you.

I did this trail today and there is a race there tomorrow so it was sigh posted. It is on forest road. It is sandy in a lot of places and has a lot of ruts whick are hard. It has no long Climbs or downhills but the ones they have are fun. The futs are hard and it is easy to endo. There are also a lot of rocks in places. Not realy worth the drive unless you live close.

This is an excellent course to spend the afternoon on. The trails are nice and wide with some good short climbs and some fast rolling hills.The worst thing is having to watch out for the horses that also use the trail. The trail starts with a scenic view by the river and proceeds into the woods. There are campsites, restrooms, Basketball courts and vending machines on the park grounds. The trails are good for everyone from the beginner to the more advanced.

Customer Service

From Carrollton you would take Ga Hwy16 for approx. 7miles and turn right onto Ga Hwy5. Proceed down Hwy5 for about 3miles turn right at the sign. This road takes you to the ranger station.

I enjoy the trails a lot. Can be rough in some places with rocks and some erosion in the some downhills but thats why i like this place. Approx. 16 miles or riding. Watch out for horses even though i've never encounted any. I recommend racing there. Has a race once a year. It is free to all caroll country residents and 2 dollars for everyone else. Park is open everyday till dusk.

Customer Service

From Carrollton go through Whitesburg and take a right at the round about. About 5 miles on the left. Look for the white sign on the left side of the road.

If you like horse-pocked, eroded-out fire roads where the only real challenges are climbing steep sandy pitches with ruts in the center, preventing your fillings from rattling out of your teeth (because of the hoof marks) and keeping your knobbies from clogging up with horse shite, than you will love this trail. I don't. I like fast and technical SINGLETRACK. If you want to have some fun at McIntosh, bring a horse. I would rate this trail 2 tires but the average rating of this trail is way too high, so I'll give it one horse poop clogged knobby to drag down that average.

Perfect for mountain biking, approx. 15 miles. Good places to start are at Council Bluff & behind the Park Station. It has plenty of hills & flat areas, some are sandy & some a tad rocky. Part of the trail you get a good view of the river & open land. Pefect for groups or single rides.

Customer Service

Trail starting at Council Bluff at the top of the hill, round trip 15 miles.
