About This Trail
added by GoldenGoose Singletrack on August 5, 2010
 
The Dwelling Loop is a 3.8 mile directional loop that varies depending on the day of the week. Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday are counter clockwise days. Listed as intermediate difficulty, the Dwelling loop follows a small peninsula around Lake Allatoona. While it's not as technical as the South Loop, it does throw a number of roots and rocks at you. The Dwelling Loop tends to have a faster pace than it's sister trails in the area and the downhill sections are VERY rewarding. Watch for hikers, you may encouter one or two while riding this loop. They are required to travel opposite the direction of bike flow to help limit dangerous encounters.

Review: I have ridden this trail twice so far and let me say that it has a good mix of climbs and descents that will keep your heart rate up and you skills in check. I raced here April 10th in the Mountain Goat XC the say after a fairly hard rain and the trial was almost perfect however the bridges were slicker than, well you know. I preferred riding it clockwise for the expert sections. Loved it and will return many times, that I am sure of.

Review: Very fast and perfect for building endurance. Skills section provides some nice payoff in the form of jumps and drops. Trail also drains very well and stays rather dry, even after wet spells.

Review: In addition to my last review, I wanted to say that I have now had the chance to ride Dwelling in the clockwise direction and it is so much better! Not to say that it is in ANY way bad going CCW, but CW is much more fast and flowing IMHO.

Review: What's not to love about Dwelling?! Not very technical at all. Some opportunities to carry some nice speed. Fair bit of roots in some sections but nothing that'll slow you down much. The alt line is a very nice addition! Look out for hikers. They travel the opposite direction of bikes and can be fairly common on the busier days. My girlfriend went with me around Dwelling last week, being only her 4th time on a bike, and she had a blast! Certainly a must-ride, just like the rest of Blankets!

Review: Rode the trail ccw yesterday and loved it. It has a nice mix of climbs and fast flowy singletrack. This is my favorite trail at Blankets by far.

Review: Great fast flowing trail. This trail has it all, and with its improvements to the new alt line, whats not to love. This is one of my favorite trails here at Blankets Creek.

Review: I love this trail, I finally got to ride the trail counterclockwise today since I usually ride on Fridays. There were a lot of people riding but it was hard to tell once you got going. This trail has a great flow to it no matter witch way you go. It has everything that you might desire in a single track.

Review: Intermediate trail at blankets. This is fun fast and very flowy going clockwise. Counter-clockwise has more uphills. Great for a warm up or a warm down. Shoot for a 25-30 minute loop!
