There is a 2.6 mile beginner friendly trail named The Tortoise Loop. Four intermediate level trails totaling 14 miles include the Red Tail loop, Flying Squirrel, White Tail loop and Coyote trail. Copperhead is a 4.5 mile trail. It is the most difficult trail in the system. Trail maps are posted at the main trailhead kiosk in the parking lot as well as at major intersections along the trail system. The trails close at sunset and after significant rain.

Review: This trail is near where I live so I ride it frequently. There is at least 24-26 miles of trail so the Singletracks info is a little out of date. Trails are will marked but it's easy to go the wrong way if you are new. I'd suggest printing out a map before you go. Don't miss out on the newish Village Trail (1.5 mi) which is very fun downhill or up, the Flyin' Squirrel (5 mi) is very fast and flowy, the Red Tail (2 mi) is really good and the White Tail is the outer loop that connects everything together. The Coyote Trail is across the street so if you want another 2.5 mi to finish the day it has some challenging sections and a rock garden.

Review: Great trail! I went for my first time today. The trails are well marked but know the map. It's a mix of up and down, but the up hills are worth the downhills. Know what day of the week it is because trail directions change. There's a trail for everyone here, from beginner to advanced. Lots of flow!

Review: I stopped here after reading reviews of trails in the North GA area so I could ride as a break during a drive. I rode Tortoise, Red Tail to White Tail, then tried Copperhead before taking Flying Squirrel back out to White Tail. The map I found on SORBA's website didn't include a seemingly new trail between Copperhead and Tortoise, but I also rode that. The trails are well maintained with good parking lot features (changing rooms, bulletin boards, etc.), but there's not much of a technical challenge on any of the trails I rode. Copperhead was arduous with the constant climbs, but it was more of a workout and less of a fun ride. I was looking for more jumps, table-tops, berms, and logs to hop over and didn't find those during my ride here. The trails are pretty well marked once you're on them, but could have better signage at the links between trails. I got turned around a few times, and had to consult other riders despite my maps and Singletracks GPS.

Review: This is a great trail and i would rate it a 5 but the maps that are on the trail are old and faded to were you cant see where the trails connect at and where the you are dot is so much so that my friend and i got lost.

There are also a lot more hills then described in other reviews and the hills are also steeper than discribed

Review: Nice fast run on White Tail/Flying Squirrel/White Tail. If you want more skills challenge and to feel a little pain, throw in Copperhead.

Review: Fun ride with several choices. We'll maintained. Nice ride thru the woods occasionally rides along the interstate. Not tremendously technical but enough drops,bumps,turns etc to keep your attention.

Review: This trail system is OK. It has some cool things like the stream crossing and some decent flow on Flying Squirrel but I wouldn't go out of my way to ride here like we did. We rode all the trails but the Coyote trail. The Copperhead trail is horrible. We even rode the new Village trail. The only trails worth riding really are White Tail and Flying Squirrel. Sorry for my report, not trying to offend anyone.
