Mountain Biking Charleston Park

****   Add a review
#34 of 404 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#1,057 in the world

Despite RAMBO's announcement back in February that these trails would be opening in 2011, at the time of this writing they are far from complete. However, there are several miles of rideable singletrack already available that offers great swoop and flow and really, truly feels like a pump track in spots! As a result it isn't very technical, but this machine-cut singletrack sure does flow! There are a couple of great views of Lake Lanier to be had.

The back section that is still under construction will have the most elevation gain. All in all, this is looking to be a great trail, and an excellent addition to Forsyth County. Until now, the only mountain biking available in Forsyth was a couple of easy miles at Central Park. Finally, Forsyth has a real mountain bike trail!
