Review: Stopped by here on way to Savannah for business trip. Locals were great and really helpful. Started counter clockwise from parking area. First 1.5 miles was really fun with single track, winding up and down riding. More intense than I was expecting, but certainly an intermediate trail. A couple a tough tight turns on climbs with roots keep you on your toes. After first section trail opens to mix of single and double track and isn't as technical as first part. Nice flow with mostly easy climbs and turns and some fun down hill sections through the pines.. Mostly well marked. At about 7 miles it becomes more single track with a bit of a couple of climbs. Some pretty decent flow before opening out to the small lake, which is back at the parking area. There is roughly 9 miles of trail. It say 7 above but it has recently been added to. If you are in the area I definitely recommend stopping by for a fun ride.

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.
