Trail Description
About this trail
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: CLEANED UP FROM AFTER THE TORNADOS IN 2008. STILL HAS A FEW TREES ACROSS THE TRAIL IN PLACES. NEEDS A GOOD CLEANUP DONE, COULD BE A LOT BETTER TRAIL. IF ANYONE IS GOING TO DO ONE I WILL HELP.

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.
