This is a great place with a good variety of trails and beautiful scenery. Good beginner stuff. All trails are very well marked. Riders of all levels will love this place. (This is the only place my girlfriend actually liked!)Huff 'n Puff is a great advanced, technical trail. The "intermediates" are also pretty technical. Not crowded at all, and well maintained.

Q: Is there drinking water available? -Guest

A: Not on the trail. There are "clean running creeks (Longbranch & Sandy) if you have a filter or Life-Straw (a good idea for an all-day outing).

Review: This is a good place to chew up mileage. Aside from huff n puff the going never gets that tough but there's enough rocks, roots, steeps and skinnies thrown in all over the place to keep things interesting. For middle GA there is some good sustained flow and the climbing is never around long enough to suck. I can't give it a 5 because the signage bothers me. I've been here a few times and gotten turned around at different points trying to follow the black arrows. If you're riding Dauset you have to do the Indian Springs out and back, that's the fastest trail to ride in this system.

Review: This was the first time riding this trail system. I started at Indian Creek State Park and rode over to dauset Trail systems. I really enjoyed riding the trails they were clear of any debris and well-maintained. I met some other Riders who told me that they have been riding their four years and really enjoyed the trails. My only complaint would be the signage.

Review: Great variety and lots of good single track to ride. I have yet to not enjoy myself in the 30 or so times I have driven from Atlanta. Plenty for everyone. My only small complaints would be to find some elevation to add, which is around, and work on the signage. It's pretty easy to get turned around.

Review: Rode the 3 mile beginner loop for the first time today (3 Miles)! (Up Bootlegger, Fern Gully, Wagon Trail, gravel road, back on Moonshine) Loved it! Challenging enough for me (rooty), and really pretty scenery! Can't wait to go back and find a longer path! Note: much of Moonshine (between markers 19 & 20) is uphill back to parking lot! The address is: 360 Mt. Vernon Church Rd Jackson, GA Can't wait to go back!!!

Review: Lots of trails. Fun and fast. Nothing super challenging. The "advanced" stuff is basically the same as the rest with slightly more hills. Good camping nearby at Indian Springs with an access trail

Review: The more I have ridden these trails over the last several years the more I like them. Technical sections have become a little more technical over the past few years. Signage and routes can be a little confusing, but tons of different route possibilities here with good mileage. Definitely the best trail system in South Atlanta region.

Review: This is a huge network of trails, nothing you see online will reveal the sheer size of this place.

I rode the blue intermediate trail. Signage is a bit tricky, and I ended up on some steep technical stuff by accident. It was easy to get back on track.

Some of the areas, like Fern Gully, are just beautiful. Flat and flowy, and there's just so much green it's overwhelming. Some areas are really well maintained with fun technical challenges. In a few areas the trail has just gotten too wide, and the erosion has turned the trail into a mass of roots. There are a lot of areas with significant washout, which is troubling because the only solution is to close sections and let them rest for a season or two.

I am still very new to this sort of riding, but I had a great ride and I will return. Make sure you put a fiver in the can by the big trail map at the trailhead, and support the trails you ride.

Review: I've been here twice and had a neutral experience both times. I either love trails with technical sections/jumps or trails with good flow. This trail has neither. While I like how many options there are for trails, I just feel like I'm only going from point A to point B instead of having an experience on my bike. I do like how they have a check-in at the front and free maps. I just wish I liked the place more since it's so easy to get to for me.
