Trail Description
About this trail
Blackburn State Park really isn't a state park anymore as it was shut down back in the 70's or 80's. There has been talk of late of Lumpkin County taking over the park and developing mountain bike trails here. This would be a great area to create a trail system for beginner to intermediate riders, as the Bull Mountain trail system is really pretty advanced.

At the present time, there are still some old trails and gravel roads on the property that are rideable. There is a doubletrack trail called the Pioneer trail that is actually pretty enjoyable, and there are numerous gravel roads going every which way.

If the area was to be developed, the possibilities would be endless!

Review: Clearly closed. Gated, fenced and official signs that say "Lumpkin County Property. No Trespassing". There no place to park nearby either, except an elementary school which is suspicious as hell nowadays. There a road that looks recently groomed from the road. I was with my kids so I didn't go in.

Review: If there was a substantial amount of support in the area for another Mountain Bike Trail then Blackburn would be the place for it. The land is abundant and it is just sitting there, unused, this is a tragedy. I would love to see this former park get developed into trails and a nice park for the community.

Review: I really do hope that this area is opened to trail development because at the present time, it is really not worth riding with Bull Mountain right down the road.
