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.

Review: Fun, fast and flowy. Enough trails to get in a good, long ride. Lots of fun, and always satisfies. Tacos just down the road towards Gainesville, if you want to practice your Spanish! I strongly recommend it!

Review: Great trail system relatively close to Atlanta.

There is excellent signage, it's tough to get lost out there.

There aren't many sustained climbs, but there are some punchy steep ones. Lots of shorter, less steep climbs. Just relentless up and down.

The soil here is very sandy so there is quite a bit of erosion. Every time I go there more roots are exposed.

If you ride the whole trail system on your hard tail, your back will probably be angry at you when you finish.

Flying Squirrel is my favorite trail at Chicopee. The descent after "Champain Hill" to the creek is bad ass.

The final creek crossing on the way back to the parking lot has a super technical climb. Your tires will be wet from the creek and then you have to make a couple 90 degree turns over some large rocks to get up to the gravel road. Bonus points if you can clean it!

Smokehouse BBQ on Atlanta Hwy and Poplar Springs Rd is great for post ride eats.

Review: Solid review! I have to admit the climb right after the last big creek crossing is tough.
