There is a 2.6 mile beginner friendly trail named The Tortoise Loop. Four intermediate level trails totaling 14 miles include the Red Tail loop, Flying Squirrel, White Tail loop and Coyote trail. Copperhead is a 4.5 mile trail. It is the most difficult trail in the system. Trail maps are posted at the main trailhead kiosk in the parking lot as well as at major intersections along the trail system. The trails close at sunset and after significant rain.

Review: I drove quite a few miles to get here. I was not impressed at all. Have been MTB riding for over 30 years all over the SE, Midwest, and 4 corners and this trail was just a let down. Super winding, not much challenging terrain, during the Fall the trail disappears due to leaves - just not a good time. I am sure the locals enjoy, but the flow is bad, the climbs are very short but steep, and I found the trail markings really unhelpful and had to follow a local back to the parking lot - this guy was actually quite a horrible person who simply wanted to drop me when I asked for help getting back to the parking lot. Well... he didn't and I made it back. Sorry buddy you aren't as strong as you hoped. I would never go back to this trail system.

Review: This trail is somewhat challenging, not because the obstacles but you go uphill a lot. I am new to mountain bikes and it shows. I need to get endurance for this type of bike riding. Overall the trail is good and the owners maintain it. Very good experience.

Review: This is a fun trail system very close to Metro Atlanta. Nothing too difficult, but it has enough terrain you can make the ride as hard as you like.

Review: Not worth the drive or money. Also, you can hear the freeway throughout. The trails were just ok, but nothing special. Also, the facilities are pretty terrible for a private park. North Georgia has much better trails for free than Chicopee.

Review: If you like roots, this is your place. I wasn't overly impressed. Going to get banged around a good bit. Lots better trails around to ride. Rode all of white tail. Copperhead gap was ok. A small section of flying squirrel and the gap between the intersection of white tail, flying squirrel and copperhead getting back to tortoise was the best .25 miles of the day. But you could tell it was much newer and completely different mentality of trail cutting and construction. Doubt I will go back.

Review: Warm weather. Dry trails; great riding. New short Dam Trail is fun & no need to get wet crossing creek thanks to new bridge. Great work NEGSORBA. Dont forget to drop in a small donation at the trail head.

Review: Good trail with a decent amount of challenge. Rather hilly with some good down hill sections and some noteworthy climbs.

Review: I rode these trails for the first time yesterday and had a great time. I got there late (park closes at dark) and was only able to ride a few of the smaller trails. There really is no warm up as the first trail is 2.5 miles (really feeling the burn before your stretches) but its fast and fun. There are hardly any amenities so bring water, food, and anything else you will need for the day. Also, the trails are poorly marked so make sure you know where you are going when coming to a crossing or you may end up farther into the woods than you wished to be.
