Trail Description
About this trail
Mostly wide singletrack and doubletrack. Be courteous to hikers and joggers and control your speed as this area sees heavy traffic on weekends. Nice scenery and a good option for riding close to town.

Review: Great little trail still located within the city. Tough enough to be interesting for the experienced rider and a great workout for the less experienced rider.

Review: I love this trail. This trail saved my life; I was sliding into sedentary oblivion when my 11 year-old son and I passed the trailhead signs and decided to investigate. We got destroyed on our first run, but I had enough fun to come away with a new passion (obsession). Now much less totally pathetic in terms of fitness, I manage to ride Sope Creek 4 or 5 times a week if the conditions warrant.

I LOVE the new reroute completed in June to avoid the permanent (and expanding) mudfields along Gumby Creek that had served as a pretty significant deterrent to regular rides there. Sope Creek is no longer "Slop Creek"!

Review: Fun fir 15 minutes from the office. A good place to get an hour workout. Nice ponytails! A good rider can average 9 mph. Nice additions. Some nice strenuous climbs off the area.

Review: Loved the hike! Lots going on out there. Great pictures, and more than enough elevation change. My first time there, it won't be my last.

Review: I love this trail. Its not very technical, but its a lot of fun. I grew up riding this trail with all kinds of bikes. Sope Creek is about 5 miles from my house in the metro Atlanta area of Marietta. This makes for a perfect little escape from the city/burbs. Sope Creek gives a mountain get away feel close to home. This is a great trail to put the training wheels on an hone your skills.

Review: I love this trail for two reasons. 1. I grew up riding this trail with all kinds of bikes, 2. It's less than 5 miles from my house. This is the perfect quick getaway to spend an afternoon. This is very unique in that it makes you feel like your out in the mountains, but your in the metro Atlanta area. This is a great place to get familiar with riding mountain bikes.
