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: 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.

Review: Very nice well maintained trail system. I've ridden here several times. On clockwise days I always miss my turn and end up on the Cochran Shoals trails which is nice as long as you have enough daylight. This is a very popular trail so it does get crowded. Last time I went it was raining and it was still crowded. Overall a good place to ride though.

Review: Sope Creek has vastly improved over the last year and resembles the 90s with an elaborate trail system of single-directional travel. The only downside is that the "speed limit" is 10 mph and the hikers you share this with know it. Directions change daily, and each ride offers something unique, fast and fun. For riders who like to hit rollers and jump, it's very possible for Sope Creek to become an enjoyable ride every time. You just have to keep watching for hikers, because many do not understand mountain biking at all. Do the whole loop, front and back, and you've got about 7 miles of fast, flowing trail that's just outside the perimeter. You can't beat that! Be careful in wet conditions or rides shortly after rainfall, because the areas closest to the Chattahoochee entrances can get really muddy, really fast. This can cause much damage to the trail, so please be mindful of how you ride in these conditions. Otherwise, scrub or die!

Review: UPSIDE: You have to love this trail for what it is: an invigorating trail in a metropolitan area. The flow is pretty good, there is ample ascent and decent and there are a few technical spots that require good handling (especially since the new section was added in Spring of 2013.) Overall it's an excellent place for an intown, intermediate rider because there just aren't any other places in Atlanta where you can get this much variety. It's my local trail and I ride it about twice a week all year long.

DOWNSIDE: Sharing this park with a lot of other non-bikers can be an issue during peak periods (weekends, nice days.) Take care to watch out for hikers (and the occasional biker) going against directional instructions; there are some blind corners and other spots that you can't fly blindly on. Also, at least once a week this summer, I've encountered people walking their dogs unleashed (!) on this trail. Be careful of that. Others have noted that there are some drainage issues in the newer sections (and every trail in the area has suffered from the deluge of rain) but steady improvements have been made.

Review: Not bad for what it is.....
We parked at Cochran Shoals on the way home from work this morning to check out the new trails. Overall a fun ride with some good climbing and some swoopy descents. Rode to the right today. Trail looks to be about the same in either direction, from Cochran Shoals climb to the ridge line and bomb down the other side. Lots of mud in the low areas but certainly rideable. Several downed trees forced a stop and a portage around but no big deal. Fun and convenient trails between work and home.

Similar Trail: Sort of rope mill-ish without the mileage.

Review: Rode the Saturday trail yesterday from Sope Creek Park down to Cochran Shoals. There were 3 large trees down across the trail. Small double tree on the middle section was almost rideable. 2nd tree on the last downhill leg required lifting over. The 3rd was a huge oak tree requiring a hike up the hill around it. Almost got rear ended skidding to a stop on a downhill with a drop off on the right. I hope someone can get out there with a chainsaw in the near future. Watch out on the last trail section. Flat rocky trail by the creek at the bottom is still muddy 2 days after rain.

Review: They recently added approximately five new miles of trail here. The new trail is nice and flowy but the lower portions have some major drainage issues. There were ruts over ruts in the mud. The technical level of the trail still stands at an easy to moderate level. It's a fun trail if you live close by bit don't make this a destination point.

Review: Should be renamed Slop Creek trail. Beginning, end, and some parts of the middle were very very muddy. Many mudpuddles along the way as well. The dry parts were pretty nice.

Lots of dog walkers, hikers, and runners, and on this trail they have right of way.

Might be good if you are dying to ride your bike and you can't possibly make it to Blanket's, but if you have the time I'd skip it.

Review: After riding Soap creek since the trail changes, I have a major concern that this trail will never be dry. On the Tuesday/Thursday/Sat route, on the first turn off of the newly opened portion of the trail, there is an area that almost becomes un-ridable because of how wet it gets and it hasn't been dry since it opened. There is desperate need of some bridges, rock gardens, burms, etc. If a group doesnt step up to maintain this trail, it's going to go to sh*t. It has so much potential to be one the best trails in the Atlanta area.

Review: Great place to ride around the Atlanta area. The new trail system is awesome. Eliminated some of the hikers. Good climbs some great downhills in either direction. Trail flows well; nothing extremely difficult. 2 singletrack loops connected by one double track makes this trail a great place to get some miles and speed in.

Review: The new singletrack is a good change of pace because instead of dodging runners and oncoming bikers, you only have to dodge runners. There are some really fast runs no matter which day you go. They took out some of the cool areas but the trade off is worth it. If sorba got a hold of this place and built some berms and jumps, this place could really become a legit trail. Gotta start somewhere.

Review: The new singletrack finally opened to bikes today. The layout is basically two separate loops, south and north, that have a half mile connector in between them. The loops are directional depending on the day of the week. Tues, Thurs, and Sat are counter clockwise days. The connector and the old gravel running trails can still be ridden in either direction. The new signage is pretty easy to follow. Trails that can't be ridden by bike have wooden gates that say "no bikes". Everything else is fair game for wheels and most all of the major intersections have a large wooden sign to let you know which direction you should be riding that day. The entire trail is still beginner to intermediate level stuff. The clockwise descent on the south loop is a blast! Very happy there were no hikers coming up it while I was coming down today.

Review: I went to go ride this trail after work this past week. Not sure about the previous review, but this trail had a decent mix of climbs and obstacles to make it fun. But all of this fun is packed into a short, multi-directional trail that can get crowded quickly. The run from the top to the bottom (going toward the river) is a blast. Coming up is definitely a challenge, but a good work out. I added a little distance by trying to quickly mash through the gravel tail near the river, but it was so congested with oblivious joggers plugged into their headphones, walkers, and dogs that it was frustrating. This place would be great if the mountain bike trail were dedicated only for bikers or we could take some of the numerous other side trails that are currently blocked off. But no luck. This is a good trail to try and get in after work, during a weekday, or if by some miracle you can get it to yourself (winter?), otherwise try something else.

Review: If you have any level of skill I would avoid this place. It's too short, too many people, and you have to pay 3$ to park. There are no optional routes, just an in and out. Bonus was all the hot chicks on the trails (and short but sweet downhill). If you live within 10 miles of this place it's worth a shot but I won't be back.

Review: This trail is a ton of fun. I started at the top once because I didn't know any better. Maybe its easier to find parking up there but if you cant find a parking spot at the bottom dont even bother riding if you want to go fast its way too crowded. I usually do the trail twice from the railroad tie section at the bottom to the pond at the top. It is very crowded though on weekends and evenings when the weather is nice. It made for many great rides this winter though when it wasnt packed.

Review: I love this trail! You can park at top or bottom, and I did see some weirdos starting at the top. The beauty of this trail is the long downhill, close intown location, and river side approach. The track is well worn and wide. Only negative (could be positive) is that it is rather short. In that respect, it was good for me as a novice. True downhill, but not a lot of tricky technical stuff or large obstacles, so its great to cut your teeth for beginners. Railroad ties at the head were intimidating to start (I walked past) but flew down them on the decent. just try not to plow down any hikers!

Review: This trail has hints of Bear Creek and Raccoon Mountain. It is fast in spots with the occasional climb. Don't under estimate it. The trail is wide in spots and then gets thin. The terrain is similar to a baseball infield. Lean to much on hard tires and you will slip and fall. My favorite part is the last part that blazes down the hill similar to a Roller Coaster. Glad to have this in my backyard.

Review: After you pony up the $3 to park, get unloaded and cruise through the hundreds of people jogging the main jogging paths, you come to a pretty long uphill climb splitting off the main path to the left. The work is worth it though because it's a great time coming back. There's not much technical here, trail flows pretty well with a few tricky climbs over erosion control timbers. I wouldn't go here on a weekend, but a weekday with no-one out here is a blast and its just 10 miles from midtown!

Review: I can't believe I've never reviewed this trail! Been riding Sope Creek off and on for years and things have certainly changed a lot. Overall I have to rate this trail low because there isn't a lot of singletrack available to bikers (though that will change soon) and because the hikers and joggers really aren't very friendly to bikers. The terrain is good - a few nice ups and downs - but overall the riding is a little boring.

Review: This is the first trail system I ever mountain biked on 21 years ago. It had a great vibe then. Most if not all trails were open to bikers, and it was a fun place to ride and meet up with friends. I stopped riding here about 10 years ago, because it became inconvenient to my work location, all the side trails were off limits, the one and only main out and back trail became too eroded, and there were a number of jerk walker/runner types making the experience not worth the hassle. I rode here back in November of 2010, and I loved the new improvements made. Very well built alternate trails, although the bi-directional was a little unnerving, because you can get going really fast and you just don't know when your going to come across people and their kids wondering all over the bike sections. I went during the week so it was not crowded. I would imagine that the weekends are still very crowded, so I will avoid it on the weekends. I had a nice time and longed for the days when the rest of the trails were still open. All this being said, if you like riding here then you (myself included) need to get involved with not only preserving what is still legal here, but also trying to get more access for building MTB only trails. The local hikers still overshadow this place with their distain for mountain bikers, and make this place unwelcoming. It's a great place to ride but it still needs lots of work. Great near the city ride

Review: As the trail steward for Sope Creek and the guy trying like hell to get more trails built and opened to bikes, I beg you DO NOT RIDE THE SIDE TRAILS. They are off-limits to bikes and are so signed. Stay on the main double track trail that goes from the Booty Loop (gravel trail) to Sibley Pond. We have a regulation in Washington DC right now that, once passed, will open 9 miles of trail to MTB. I expect that occur by Fall 2011. If you ride the side trails, people DO send emails to the NPS and they urge the NPS to ban MTB altogether. Trust me, I see every email. How can you help? Info at www.sopecreektrails.com. Come to workdays I post, be courteous to ALL trail users. Don't ride the side trails. Most of all, send a monthly email to the park superintendent (info on the SCT website) and thank them for the work they are doing to promote mountain biking. Want more info? Email me at charles@atlantaoutfitters.com. Thanks! Remember....www.sopecreektrails.com and on Facebook at 'Sope Creek Trails Atlanta.'

Review: Just finished a lunch ride at Sope. Not a bad trail for a quick aerobic workout. Is an out and back, wide but short (2.5 miles one way) trail. Seems to be well maintained. There are a couple technical climbs but overall a moderately difficult/technical ride. Again, good for a quick lunch workout but dont go there expecting to have a ball.

Review: This trail is eroded in a couple of parts and in other parts there are some steps. On the uphill they may look hard, but you can usually find a way to climb. Many times I just powered through right on the middle of the steps. Those steps on the uphill become drop-offs when going downhill, which makes the ride really nice if you know how to do it. This is an intermediate short trail I ride when I'm tired of the other trails. Note 1: Pay attention to the signs and you will not get lost, I mean, you won't get so lost. Note 2: I would avoid this trail in the weekends because there are a lot of hikers there. You will have to hit the brakes more often than you want.

Review: Just came back from riding the new trails at Sope Creek and LOVE THEM! Even though these trails are bi-directional and multi use they are a lot of fun. I think they are safer now, they changed/closed some areas that were very eroded. They have new real restrooms now. Sope Creek has a magic other parks don't have. It's worth checking out their new trails!

Review: unfortunately this trail is no longer good. The new trail renovation has rendered sope creek extremely dangerous. not in a good way either. the new trail is about a single track and a half inorder to keep erosion down but it is bi-directional and multi use. lots of kids and runners in the afternoon and they like to yell at people on bikes. they feel it is their trail even though they never show up for the trail maintenance! there is so much land here the person who "redesinded it" should be kicked in the nuts! because they ruined it. If they make a loop and keep all the runners on the other trails it would be waaaaaaaay better. it is flowy now but not techy at all ... another mistake

Review: The previous person was right. It was very hard to get into a rhythm with this trail. Some sections of the trail are extremely fun, some are so eroded that you either risk you well being going down or you get off and walk you bike down. The uphill climb is steep but well worth the effort. It is extremely easy to get lost here. There are posted maps along the way, but kinda hard to read, since alot of them don't have a "You are Here" dot.

Review: There are many side trails and they all lead down to the same area, so you can ride many of them in one visit, good downhill sections, good work out on up-climbs, but can't get a rythm going - you are either going down the trails or up them, good rocky and technical trail. new trails are being carved out and will be ready to ride within the next month, in order to eliminate erosion. these new trails are thinner, and cut out the steps and some rock faces to create a smoother, faster ride.

Review: I'm new to MTB, and live about 20 minutes away from this trail. It's a good quick ride, and has a few short stretches of technical areas. Unfortunately, there are quite a few 4x4's and 6x6's along the trail to prevent erosion (they become a bit of a nuisance on the climbs). Watch for hikers, and bidirectional traffic.

Review: The parts of this trail that are most fun are now closed for "natural reconstruction". The parts that are open are pretty short and crowded; especially on the weekends. Nonetheless, it is a great afterwork ride for a technical jaunt. This is good trail to work on your technical skills, as it can be ridden over and over in one day. I recommend it to newbies those wanting something different.

Review: It's a simple out and back trail which can be accessed from either interstate pkwy near I285 or Paper Mill Road. I ride it from the Interstate Pkwy entrance. the outward half is mostly uphill with some nice technical bits which are great. Then the return journey is just a peach, all that climbing was worth it. Once again, it's only a short trail but really great for an afterwork ride, or if you're a bit pressed for time but really need to have a quick blast and get some oxygen in your lungs!

Review: When you get to the bottom of the main hill on the gravel path, take a right and follow road for 300 yards or so. Turn right on to the catwalk over the marsh and you will be at the best single track Sope Creek offers. This area is about 4 miles with 2 loops you can ride before going back out to climb the hill to the parking lot. I donít think you are supposed to ride on the wooden catwalk but once you get back in the woods some of the trails are for bikes. I donít know any other way to get there so be careful not to get in trouble. I have never had a problem.

Review: Mostly heavily eroded double-track with a few steep climbs over heavily washed out terrain. Very crowded, 2 way traffic with lots of walkers and leashed up dogs. If you're close, it's not bad, but head 7-10 minutes north on 400 to Big Creek if you want a much much better experience.

Review: Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, though the walkers didn't seem to notice that walking in the middle of the trail is both inpolite and dangerous. Trail was not too challenging, but had enough good downhills to make it fun. Got better when we got lost and went on some of the hiking only singletrack. All in all a good time, but I will try many more area trails before heading back. By the way, I'm new to Atlanta and looking for folks to ride with. If interested email me at grantren@yahoo.com.

Review: A fun quick downhill to the Hooch and then you're racing pedestrians to the turns. Everything but the climb back up to Sope is for beginners. Don't complain about the $2 parking fee. Trails are far and few to come by. Be thankful for what we have being so close to the city or buy the property to blaze your own trails. Hell, you watch some terrible $8.50 movie with that Ashton kid. Maybe parks should charge the same.

Review: Started from the to of the trail, not the Hooch entrance. Pretty fast riding on the way down with some really technical, rocky downers. Wouldn't reccomend this one to your newbie friend, although there may be some alternate routes around that stuff. Lots of fun on the way down but burned on the way back. The bottom ends up at Cochran Shoals on the Hooch. Good riding but it hasn't drawn me back...yet.

Review: Yeah, I ride these trails often and know my way around the park well. I want to know where the hell all of the jumps are. There are not any. At least what I call jumps. The park needs to open up some of the trails to bikes, these are the better trails.

Review: This isn't a bad trail. Its just a trail to ride if you have nothing better to do in Marietta. Its great for beginner riders that are just getting into mountain biking or kids that are getting into mountain biking.

Review: This trail was a dissapointment. The majority of the trail is double track with brief rocky sections that are not very technical. You also have to watch your speed because of the overabundance of pedestrians. There is one downhill run toward the back of the biking section that is extremely technical, but you can't really open up the speed on it due to hikers. This is the same for the single track section with the drop offs. The hill climbs leaving the park are great and will help build strength but thats about it. If the park would close the mountain biking part off to hikers it would greatly inmprove the trail, the added speed would really help increase the difficulty and the overall fun factor. I would advise skipping this trail and trying yellow river.

Review: This trail would make an easy, laid-back, Sunday morning ride, except for the hikers. They are a major weakness of this trail, because there are millions of them and they are always in the way at the worst times. In addition, the technical downhill sections are weak. Overall, not worth the $2 parking fee, unless you are close by and not looking for a challenging trail, with a lot of moving obstacles.
