    Usually these are fun trails but with all the rain there were many large mud puddles. I know that should be expected after so much rain however this mud problem was lingering too long . Two bridges were washed out and three trees across the trails. Maintenance and drainage work is a little over due. Hopefully they will be restored back to greatness soon.

    Had fun with my daughter riding this trail. The trail had a little too many roots. Also the mosquitos were terrible. All on all it was a good ride.

    In the area on business - rented a mountain bike from @AtlantaTrek (GREAT people, bike was in excellent condition!) to ride some local red clay throughout the week - did 7.5 mi on this trail system & had a nice time!
    Not too technical, would've liked some flowier spots, but overall a great way to spend an hour doing what you love!!

    Rode this trail about 3 weeks ago, and was fine. This trip though there are several trees down and a little overgrowth. Still good though.

    Great track if you're around the area. Flows pretty well with some fun obstacles. Also catch some speed around mile 6.

    Starting on the trail going right of the pond results in some wonderful single track for about 1.5 miles. From there the trail goes into very wide single track in a very unattractive environment. Tree harvesting = ugly. Hope it recovers in the next few years. Areas that were out and out boring could use some berms and other features to liven up the ride. If your going to use a bobcat to make a trail might as well use it to the fullest!

    Rode last weekend on a rather overcast day and had a good time. Trail is well marked and not terribly technical (at all really) which is fine with me. Apparently the fire department or somebody has recently come through and done a bit of clearing; this made some areas rather desolate and others bland (riding on what is basically a dirt hill) but overall the trail is still fun and well-marked. There were a couple spots where roots were the perfect combo of being at odd angles, downward sloping and on a ledge or in an uphill turn; personally I find these to be my worst enemy but ultimately not a huge deal. Had a lot of fun and it was worthwhile break from the drive to Atlanta. Hard to use the difficultly scale on this one due to the clearings, but should be good for most anyone.

    I am sure the trail is great but I went for the first time today and the trails are closed for timber to be cut. No reopen date posted

    Stopped by here on way to Savannah for business trip. Locals were great and really helpful. Started counter clockwise from parking area. First 1.5 miles was really fun with single track, winding up and down riding. More intense than I was expecting, but certainly an intermediate trail. A couple a tough tight turns on climbs with roots keep you on your toes. After first section trail opens to mix of single and double track and isn't as technical as first part. Nice flow with mostly easy climbs and turns and some fun down hill sections through the pines.. Mostly well marked. At about 7 miles it becomes more single track with a bit of a couple of climbs. Some pretty decent flow before opening out to the small lake, which is back at the parking area. There is roughly 9 miles of trail. It say 7 above but it has recently been added to. If you are in the area I definitely recommend stopping by for a fun ride.

    Great ride. About 8 miles on my route. Switchbacks, roots and some short climbs. Enjoy!

    This is the sAme trails as the childrens home, btw. I'm sure that has been said here already, but... First half, great, 2nd half, not so great. some tight single track at first with a couple long climbs and downhills, but then when you get a few miles in it just turns into a lot of winding around a pine orchard without a lot of features in it other than a few log jumps. but then at the end it turns back into singletrack in the woods with a couple more technical spots and climbs. Overall a good trail for the area

    A very nice ride. The first half of the trail has some technical sections with roots, rocks, tight turns, and fairly steep climbs. The second half has more flow--a good thing for me since I was worn out by that point! I found the trail to be well-maintained and well-marked until about the last mile. Somehow, I couldn't find that final section and ended up cutting through the center of the Children's Home complex to return to the parking lot.

    Stopped by this trail to catch a ride on my way north. It was a decent trail system but not marked very well. Glad we meet a regular that gave us a tour or we would have been scratching our heads at every intersection. Rode about 5.5 miles until I cut a tire on a sharp rock and had to bail out. Luckily I could see the childrens home and made it and easy exit. Could see this trail being real fun once you learn the flow of it.* Review edited 5/29/2012

    I love this trail. Easily my favorite. As a beginner and ex smoker, this trail was a good mixture of nice and butt kicking all in one. I will definately be back to this trail many many times.

    Fun trail if you're in the Macon area. Lot's of tight, twisting single track. No huge elevation changes but a little up and down to get you out of the seat. Definitely worth a visit. It's not marked superbly but you'll get your heart rate up without having to stop and scratch your head too much if it's your first time on the trail.

    This is a very fun trail for a short ride. Not real technical but the trails are fun with good flow.
