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: 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.

Review: Fantastic trail system that continues to get better all the time. Creek bed entree point is finally getting rerouted around mud pits. For those of us that live in the Bulkhead/Sandy Springs area, we need to drop to our knees and give thanks for a really great place to ride as an alternative to Blankets. If runners and dog walkers are the only concern, we have little to worry about.

Review: Fast and flowy in places. I was really surprised how fast some sections were. It was a little treacherous in places due to the leaves on the trail but only in a couple of sections. Managed to double up on the first loop to the left and banged out 11 miles or so. Great fun but comes with a warning. Lots of dog walkers and trail runners. Great fun

Review: This trail was unexpectedly fun. It is a wide singletrack and no really tight turns so you can simply fly down the trail. The overall speed of the trail just makes the downhills that much faster. There aren't really any hard climbs which is ironic since the downhills are so much fun. If you want to go fast and have a blast head over to Sope. There are two actual loops. There is the Sope Creek Loop and then the Cochran Schoals Loop. About halfway through the Sope Creek Loop there is an Access trail to Cochran Schoals. With both loops your are at about 7 miles total. Sope Creek is about 2.5. It's fast and fun.

Review: Great trail. Only did halfway clockwise. Some mud at the start after a day of light rain. Great work-out, might be a little tough for a beginner. It is well marked but you still need to read the signs!

Review: I did not get to ride the entire trail so I will update this once I have. Big warning, the trail is crowded that was for sure. Other than that it was good. Some double track with rocks and such leading to some good single track that flowed well. If you are close to the trail and want to go for a quick ride but cant drive to Blankets or Rope Mill this is a great place to get some miles in. I would say that it is also a little more friendly to a beginner looking to get their feet a little more wet than Mosquito Flats or something of that nature. Put all of the small skills together in a full package here a few times and then head to a more challenging trail.
