Trail Description
About this trail
Updated 4/27/18
Located in the northwest portion of Cobb County, Allatoona Creek Park consists of 1450 acres leased by Cobb County from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, as well as several hundred acres of Cobb County property. Large open fields give way to forest as the property connects to Lake Allatoona. Two creeks (Little Allatoona & Big Allatoona) merge as you near the lake. Among the 1450 acres are several wetland areas. These wetland areas are of vital importance to the property's diverse fauna and flora.

The park is home to a vast array of wildlife including ground nesting birds, birds of prey, deer, fox, bobcat and other mammals and reptiles. The land is managed to accommodate all species of wildlife with archery hunting for deer allowed during season. The park is open for public use except during hunting season.

Review: Ok trails, not worth the drive. If these were next door to my house, maybe I would ride them more; however, the trails are really lacking any elevation and the trail builders did not do a very good job on many of the trails in regards to countering that lack of elevation. Too many twists that just sap any kind of momentum or flow. There are a couple trails that are decent, but blankets, chicopee, and sope are definitely better in regards to elevation, flow, features, and design.

Review: On mileage alone its hard to top Allatoona. The technical diversity offered up is great too. The beginner trails are fun in their own right, the intermediate trails flow really well and throw some tech at you, and the harder trails like voodoo and hocus pocus can be a downright grind. Add on the slopestyle trails and it's definitely one of the better rides in the metro area.

Review: Great 30 Miles trail system with trails from beginners to advanced and expert. Very well maintained and in a beautiful secluded area, far from highways and city. Less eroded and less crowded than Blankets and not as close to the Interstate as Rope Mill. Highly recommended.

Review: Decent mileage with some pretty cool berms and wooden features, but lacking in elevation. Good trails if you're in the area, but, no offense to other posters, this is not a destination trail or 1 of the best in GA. Not in the top 5 in GA, let alone the southeast.

Review: Maybe you didn't see everything. Toona is a million times better than Sope Creek. It may not have thousands of feet in elevation but this system has the most variety of any trails in Georgia. It's my "Go To" for a quick ride with almost 40 miles of singletrack, flow trails, and jump lines to choose from. There's even a skills area over by the dog park. Easily the best kept secret in Georgia.

Similar Trail: Rope Mill or Blankets Creek

Review: We'll have to take your opinion with a grain of salt...particularly since you rank Sope creek higher. Sope Creek?!?!? Did you ride all of Allatoona?

Review: I love these trails. There is over 30 miles of trails in this system and they are adding more every day. There's everything from raw backcountry single track to bermy machine cut trails. They have added a bunch of new jump lines and even a skills area and pump track. This is a destination trail for sure. Don't miss it.

Review: This is an amazing trail system. You can tell is was designed and built by professional trail builders. Everything about this system is top notch. Great facilities, great signage, and incredible singletrack. The downhill and bike parks are some of the best I have seen. I would say this is the number 1 complete bike destination in Georgia and probably in the top 5 in the southeast.

Review: Allatoona is by far the best overall park in Metro Atlanta. Toona now has 30 miles of well maintained trails. Turtle, Masons, Rusty and Mumbo are fast, flowy singletrack. Voodoo and Hocus Pocus are advanced and challenging. Driftwood ( the newest trail) borders lake allaroona and has beautiful trails with some challenging climbs. There are also newly built jump tracks and three fast and challenging flow trails. You can easily spend a day riding these trails and they are well worth the trip .
