Mountain Biking Emory Recycling Center

#296 of 395 mountain bike trails in Georgia

The trail is a very technical, but fun loop of switchbacks. It's like riding a
knotted rope. Very fun to ride with others, because you will pass by them on
the switchbacks. It's not a long trail, but an excellent addition when you are
riding Peavine Creek. From there you can also exit the trail near the railroad
tracks and ride on an old road/path that has some steep descents and
ascents.

Getting there
From Peavine Creek Mountain Bike Trail, cross Peavine Creek on Old Briarcliff
Rd, and follow paved bike path down into Emory Intramural Fields (Candler
Field). Continue on path until you reach parking lot, pass the recycling
center on the left. The trail is accessible by entering the woods to the left,
alongside the recycling center fence (If facing the recycling center, it is the
fence on the right side). The entrance is well hidden, and you will probably
have to walk your bike about 30ft from the road to get to the trail.
There is also parking at Candler Field, which is where Peavine Creak Dr
dead ends.

    Local riders call this "Seven Sisters" because it has about that many steep climbs/descents along its length. I almost always ride this trail one-way, starting at Old Briarcliff Rd. and popping out behind the Visual Arts building. As of 8/18/2015 the trail is very overgrown but mostly passable. Not really fun to ride but it's a good workout and a convenient connector.

    Rode these in the reverse direction mentioned above. A decent addition to the peavine creek trails a block away. Not much more than about .75-1miles. Add up the 1.5 on Peavine and you can make a decent loop. For a more epic ride. Try linking up Waterworks, these Emory trails, Peavine Creek, and Morningside Nature Preserve. About 5 miles of singletrack and another 3-4 miles of pavement riding in between to link the 4.
