Paynes Creek is ready for the grand opening next Fri. I did a couple hours of finish work on the trail with the sorba groups last Sat., and we rode afterwards.
This may may be the funnest trail I've ridden. Only ~7 mi, but it's so fun that I would do several loops if I was there for a weekend. Haven't been to FATS, but if it's like this trail, I've been missing out. It reminds me of the best flowy parts of the monster mile at Ft Yargo.
It's not too far off I-85, and there is a small campground with sites on the lake and bathrooms. Parking is past the campground entrance at the upper end of the boat ramp parking lot. No fee to ride.
