Trail Description
About this trail
The first, and only, legal mtb trails in the city of Athens on public property.
While the property size limits the amount of trails that can be laid in the
area, the terrain is perfect for getting your tires dirty. Master plans will
eventually have this park linked to the Oconee River Greenway. Right now
there is only a 1.5 mile loop but work should begin soon on phase two and
extra miles. For the time being, the trail is best done in multiple laps or as
part of a larger "urban dirt ride" connecting some of the other well known
bootleg trails in the area.

Review: This is a great, well maintained park... it has beginner trails and also has more advanced(funner) trails... I can't rightly give it a five because I am just getting into mountain biking and it is the only trail I have hit so far... but it is definitely a fun course with nice technical areas and also some pretty nice jumps if you choose to use them... or you can just flow through... I would definitely recommend this course if you are just starting out because it will let you know whether you want to keep mountain biking or not... just make sure you look at the map posted up... because some of the trails are one way and also this lets you know which trails are more advanced than the ones you want to stay off of until you are ready

Review: Two-way traffic and noisy freeway really ruined the ride. We were dodging people left and right. If you don't live nearby, this is not worth the drive. Trail itself was on the easier side of intermediate.

Review: This park is quite fun. There are trails for everyone. There are two trails that are a more for advanced riders. Trails are also marked pretty well. After you finishing riding, if its summer, you can go check out the splash pad located at the center of this park.

Review: Great downhill trail runs. The cross country is a little short but still a good trail for the area.

Review: This is a great little trail system. It's flowy and fun with some optional jumps and rock drops. "Widespread" is very short but intense. The second time I went down it I ended up in the ICU, but I don't fault the trail for that. The green, blue, and orange trails are beginner/kid friendly but watch out for the couple optional side legs on the blue and orange if you're just getting started.

Review: The trails were beginner friendly, flowy, and very fun . There were obstacles to make things more challenging or you could go around them. The orange trail was intermediate level. Good berms and what I call ditches where you go down a drop then back up over a bank. I did lose my direction here so I may have missed some stuff. If ever back in this area I will definitely do these again.

Similar Trail: PAC trail in Peachtree city similar to the orange trail

Review: Pretty sweet little trail system in Athens. There are some really nice features throughout the trails including rocks, rollers, and jumps. The two one-way downhill runs are quite fun with the one on the left (Widespread) having some jumps that I wasn't brave enough to do. Drive-By Truckers is best done counter clockwise and can be accessed (along with Widespread and Panic) by entering the trail from the left side of the main parking lot next to the football field. Although there's only like 4 or 5 miles of trails I ended up riding 11 miles. Definitely recommend riding here if you're in the area.

Review: Love trail Creek. They have done a great job of adding features without having much elevation to work with. Beginner friendly but fun for the advanced crowd as well

Review: I enjoyed riding this trail system and it provides a wide range of learning opportunities. There are technical obstacles but most have bypasses to allow a beginner to get through. The only down side is that the trail is two-way traffic (except specific downhill areas) and this leads to multiple potential interactions with other riders if you are not careful. Great location and I plan to continue riding this trail often.
