Review: This is the sAme trails as the childrens home, btw. I'm sure that has been said here already, but... First half, great, 2nd half, not so great. some tight single track at first with a couple long climbs and downhills, but then when you get a few miles in it just turns into a lot of winding around a pine orchard without a lot of features in it other than a few log jumps. but then at the end it turns back into singletrack in the woods with a couple more technical spots and climbs. Overall a good trail for the area

Review: A very nice ride. The first half of the trail has some technical sections with roots, rocks, tight turns, and fairly steep climbs. The second half has more flow--a good thing for me since I was worn out by that point! I found the trail to be well-maintained and well-marked until about the last mile. Somehow, I couldn't find that final section and ended up cutting through the center of the Children's Home complex to return to the parking lot.

Review: Wow! I had a blast on this trail. This was the first mountain bike trail I have ever ridden. I was by myself and had no trouble at all following this trail from beginning to end. I thought some of the inclines were going to kill me (very out of shape) but I still enjoyed every minute in the woods. Great scenery along the creek too. Thanks for a great place to ride!!

Review: Stopped by this trail to catch a ride on my way north. It was a decent trail system but not marked very well. Glad we meet a regular that gave us a tour or we would have been scratching our heads at every intersection. Rode about 5.5 miles until I cut a tire on a sharp rock and had to bail out. Luckily I could see the childrens home and made it and easy exit. Could see this trail being real fun once you learn the flow of it.

Review: Solid Trail. More to the beginner difficulty. Small roots, minor climbs, plenty of tight and twisty turns with some straights to open up on. Watch out for the plentiful 2"-4" short stumps and fire ant hills that are plentiful and line the sides of the trails. I definetly recommend it.

Review: I love this trail. Easily my favorite. As a beginner and ex smoker, this trail was a good mixture of nice and butt kicking all in one. I will definately be back to this trail many many times.

Review: Fun trail if you're in the Macon area. Lot's of tight, twisting single track. No huge elevation changes but a little up and down to get you out of the seat. Definitely worth a visit. It's not marked superbly but you'll get your heart rate up without having to stop and scratch your head too much if it's your first time on the trail.

Review: Love this trail. It has plenty of flat track, decent climbs over good roots, and some good downhill sections- not to mention a beautiful ride all together... On the back section they have plenty of good jumps to launch you into the air....

Review: Tight and twisty singletrack that leans towards the beginners end of the difficulty spectrum without being too boring for intermediate and advanced riders. Several log overs and short, rooty, washed out climbs add a technical aspect to the trail that is very welcome. At seven miles, it can certainly pose a challenge to a new rider. No real elevation gain but tight singletrack to keep you guessing what's around the next bend.

Review: From a mtb beginner's point of view, this is a great trail and like everyone has said there's a little bit of everything for everyone to enjoy. Some climbs, zippy downhills, trees... everything. If you haven't tried this trail, by all means, please check it out and enjoy.

Review: This is my primary trail. Good diversity however i will say its not the most challenging from a climbing aspect. Lots of weaving in and out of trees which can be a bit dicey if you are at speed. Most of the downhill sections are in rather tight areas. Roots seem to be in the worst possible places. It gives the option to ride a couple miles, a coupel more or all the way through (about 7 miles). Usually i opt to do the back half twice to round it out to an even 10. The trail is well maintained as this is a fairly popular area. Dont go on thursday afternoons in the fall due to X-Country running events. my average speed is around 9.5 (when im in shape of course....)

Review: I came to visit from Savannah, Ga. Here a speed bump is a hill! I really liked this trail b/c of its flow and diversity and options for speed that could kill if slammed into a pine. It takes about an hour to finish... if you figure out the number system. It is numbered 1-30. My best advise is go with the flow. Options will be available for spider tracks, but use your instinct and the natural flow of the trail to stay on track... even though some arrows point back the way you came. Trail starts to the right of the pond. Have fun.

Review: Really fun 7-mile ride. It's not too difficult, and can be ridden in < hour. Ride it from either direction for a varied terrain. I'd consider this my "home" trail, since it's only a few minutes drive from my house.
