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.

Review: I rode Red Tail and Copperhead Gap yesterday. Red Tail is awesome, lovely loop of singletrack just off of White Tail after the Tortoise Loop. A large tree has recently fallen, and a rat snake was using the trail to work on his tan, but other than that it was perfect. Copperhead is described as an "advanced" trail, and I agree with that. The entry looks sketchy, and that is a good thing as it deters noobs from wandering in. The first mile or so is just like the rest of Chicopee, all flowy singletrack with very few rock gardens. The advanced bit comes in the vertical features of this trail that are clustered around the middle. The dropper post paid for itself on some of these steep dives, and I only chickened out and walked one of the obstacles. Lots of fun, but remember that it's four miles long, and it ends in the middle of the park where you will be as far as you can get from the parking lot. Bring your legs. Might wanna bring a lunch, too. Flying Squirrel is still my favorite trail in all of Georgia. It's better than a trip to Six Flags.

Review: I just hit Chicopee Woods this Sunday. I used to bike here all the time in the early 2000's. The trail is still in great shape. It was good to get a perspective riding the trail in so-so riding shape. I did the Tortoise Loop to White Tail(It used to be called the Outer loop). The Tortoise Loop is an awesome warm-up; not too technical with some really nice flow and some fun sections. The trail seems to have been re-routed because there used to be a bigtime downhill section that led to White-tail. As a casual mt biker now not looking for a lot of technical stuff, White tail is an awesome trail for me. There is some good flow and the forest scenery is amazing. There are a few sections with some tough little uphill with roots to ride over but I think that is probably par with any trail in this section of the country. The only real tough technical section is towards the end with a creek crossing which you can walk you bike across. The last uphill surge is really tough and then you do the back quarter of the Tortoise trail which is mostly uphill. Chicopee Woods is still my favorite Mt bike trail system in Georgia with Blankets Creek coming in 2nd.

Review: Great ride 10/13/17 afternoon. Trails dry & fast. All trails clear.....well done to clean up crew of NEGSORBA following IRMA storm damage. Did 16 miles of none stop single track; great flows when done in order of White Tail ?Copperhead ?Flying Squirrell. Trails well sign posted & all loops lead into another trail. Loops range from 2 miles to 5 miles each, but you can ride all without stopping to get about 18 miles. Dont miss out on loops Red Tail & Coyote (which is better done anti clockwise). Parking is free for now, but there may soon be a charge. The NEGSORBA MTB club doesnt get a cent, so please make a donatation at the trail head drop box. Cool off afterwards at at Left Nut craft brewery, 1/2 mile away..
