Trail Description
About this trail
This trail system was originally developed back in 2001 but was destroyed by the Mother's Day tornado of 2008. Through the hard work of the Ocmulgee Mountain Bike Association and Bibb County, the trail system has been redesigned and rebuilt. The new trail opened up 2 years ago (2011) and is better than ever! This is some of the most demanding singletrack in Middle Georgia with great climbs and fast downhills. The park also offers lake access and camping.

There are two loops that are well marked, a Beginner loop as well as an Advanced loop. The Beginner loop takes out a couple of the longer climbs but it's still a challenging ride. To reach both trail heads you'll take the first paved road to your left once you enter the part, at the bottom of the hill you'll see the trail kiosk with the Advanced trail starting to the left of the bathrooms. To reach the Beginner trailhead you'll need to ride up the road a few hundred feet and you'll see the trailhead on your left. An additional 2 or so miles of trail to be built finished later this year! Park fee is $5 per vehicle.

Review: Many improvements on this trail recently. If you're traveling I75 thru Ga this trail is a must. There is a fee of $5 per carload but worth every penny. Good camping and boating here as well.

Review: The trails are better than I remember. Well maintained and they are building new ones. Yeah! I got in more than 8 miles and didn't ride it all. I'm looking forward to returning and exploring the new stuff.

Review: I will be back. Very flowy for the lack of elevation (less than 1000' per 10 miles) The "advanced" trail (red blaze) is not advanced but fun none the less. The description for the "advanced" loop says 7 miles but new trail has been added. It is closer to 9 miles now. I ran out of daylight so I didn't get a chance to ride the easier trail. If you are driving north on 75 and need to kill time so you don't hit the Atlanta rush hour, I recommend stopping and getting a ride in. If you are driving South and are all stressed from the traffic, then stop and ride!

Review: Good for a quick workout if you're in the area. I rode the whole loop which is all XC style single track. Lots of short up hill bursts with a couple fun downs. These trails don't seem to get a lot of use, when I was there I was clearing spiderwebs in the evening. A good bit of downed branches and overgrown sections. $5 entry fee and the trails are marked pretty well.

Review: Decent little trail if your in Macon. A lot more elevation than I expected. Not a ton of flow, but a couple fun descents.

Review: Fun trail, definitely worth a stop by if you are in the area. I think it's the best trail in Macon. Some unique features make it stand out like the old school bathroom structures that look like bomb shelters, random concrete picnic tables in the middle of no where, and the section of trail that rides through a barn. Short punchy climbs that make you work, plus a ton of flow sections (not sure what the person was talking about in another review that said there was "no real flow", it has a ton of flow!). Only complaint which seems to be consistent is that it was a little overgrown in place which lead to thorns that rip your legs and arms and also allowed ticks to jump on me. Even with this, it is still well worth the ride.

Review: Great trail - some steep climbs, but short enough not to kill an intermediate rider! A few nice bridges and such, and a GORGEOUS stream crossing on the 'advanced ' trail - which I suspect is marked that way due to the steeps... If you're in the area, a MUST ride opportunity!!

Review: Great trip. I read all the review and made the trip out here and was not disappointed. It is worth the small $3 fee to enter the park. Well marked tail. Lots of wildlife running around on the trail. my only complaint is it trail needs some maintenance. I had welts across my face and arms from all the vines and branches hanging onto the trail.
