Trail starts by the picnic area to the left of the parking lot. Mostly singletrack with a section of fire road. This trail reminds me of Conyers because it is not too technical but if you try to ride it fast it will kill you! This will be the site for the Macon Madness GAP race for 2000!

Review: Trail is open. It had not been maintained the past two years or so, but we (SORBA-OMBA) have spent the past couple weekends working on it. All trees and brush have been cleared and leaves/pine straw has been blown. We are working on getting signage.

Review: If you are near here anyway and need a place to ride, then go . Other than that, dont. All the new stuff is like someone went through with a large bobcat, made a trail 8 feet wide wherever they could and then left it that way. No natural ground features no tight turns, straight up climbs, Just not fun at all

Review: The county folks recently did a lot of work on this trail, and it shows. It's greatly improved, with way more signs and segments than before. The trails have also been cleaned up quite a bit (but with all the rain so far this summer, there's some erosion). It's not an "advanced" trail system, but absolutely worth a visit for a good workout. The flow is good, and with more use it'll firm up nice. I'll definitely return when in the area.

Review: Did a race at this trail. There were some tight sections and lots of roots. It was a little rough in places bc I think they did a lot of maintenance on the trail for the race. Nothing too exciting. Although, the little BMX area was fun!

Review: To be honest, this trail was terrible. Luckily, I ran it and didn't bring my bike. The trail is not maintained. There was trash all over the place. Not worth it!

Review: Don't waste your time. There are trees still down everywhere and carried my bike a good portion. Nothing is marked and you can tell the trail is never ridden because there are pine needles 8 " deep all along the trail. If we had a group to work on it- would be very nice trail to ride.

Review: I was a little worried about riding here since the majority of the previous reviews all mention that is in need maintenance. Luckily, it looks like they have had a few trail parties here and they trail was in great shape. A GPS or a person familiar with the trails would be a good idea for first time riders as there are a lot of loops that shoot off. In a few places you have to ride through the grass near the baseball fields and pick up the trail in another place. Surprising climbs for a trail in middle GA and some fun sections headed downhill. Rugged enough to keep you one your toes and a couple of sandy turns will keep your head on a swivel. Check out the BMX track in the back before you go. Fun stuff.

Review: The trail is a little over grown in places, and not marked very well. But does have potential, I spoke with the director out at the park and she said that if enough people would verify that they would start to use the trails again, she would have the clean up finished. The trail isn't bad at all, a few nasty little washed out spots that at speed are a bit of fun. I had a blast the other day when I rode it. It's mostly single track with sandy corners, the course isn't marked well but if you study it a few times and stay in the outside tracks it's a nice relaxing ride. I raced myself around the place and it was a challenge in some areas. Over all, needs some work but if you are a more experienced rider, attack the trails and it's a blast.* Review edited 2/25/2011

Review: Fun trail. Good mix varied lengths of climbing and descending. Sand on parts of trail is an interesting challenge as well. From reading older reviews, it would seem that this trail has gotten a makeover as the trail was in excellent shape.

Review: Fun and quick. My first stop on my visit to the Macon trails. Good warm-up for some of the longer trails. Fast declines and hot as hell. It can be completed in under 25 min.

Review: You can tell that this was once a great trail system - twists and turns, fast descents, and varied terrain. Sadly the trails here are in need of some TLC, particularly with fallen trees and overgrown brush. I also saw some kids on four wheelers riding the trails despite the signs prohibiting motor vehicles. Too bad, this place could be a great option for the east side.

Review: Sand filled singletrack is what defines this trail. A good ride with lots of elevation change, tight turns and rolling hills. Not as well maintained as some trails in the area but still an excellent ride. Bring water in the summer as wind is nonexistence on this trail and the humidity can best be defined as spirit crushing, bring water.

Review: 13 Jan 2008 Trail needs some attention and lack ofmaintance makes ithard to follow parts of the trail that arenot blocked by brush and overgrowth. This trail could be a vary good ride.

Review: This trail is ok. nothing to write home about, let alone call. It is like going up and down a sled hill several times. good for your cardio, but not much to offer in the eyes of the technical seeker. could use better markings. Watch out for SMALL root on last downhill, may turn into BIG root... oh yeah and it is exit 6 out of Macon not 5

Review: Good fun trail. Used for an XC race each year. Has elements of loose sand in turns, downhill, uphill, tight turns, log obsticles, long straight sandtrap uphills, and lots of flat out fast singletrack. The park itself has a small BMX style course that normally serves as the start of the XC race. Its not the longest trail around, or the hardest, but still a very fun one.

Review: This trail is a pretty good trail for beginning riders. It can be pretty difficult to ride though because of the sharp turns at the bottoms of the hills and because of all the roots and sand.
