Trail Description
About this trail
Trail is mostly purpose cut singletrack but has a couple of easier sections
that are made up of doubletrack or old reclaimed forest roads that are
quickly turning into doubletrack. Easy, intermediate, and advanced
sections. Good mix of climbs and descents with plenty of area to keep you
busy all day. Almost all the trails are bike only except for the Cloudland
Connector Trail which runs straight through the system on its way up to
Chattanooga.

Q: If I camp at Cloudland Canyon State Park can I ride the Cloudland Connector trail right into five points? How far is that? Would it be miles of flat fire rd or a fun singletrack? Thanks! -climb_head

A: It's not fire roads....It's mostly singletrack. If I remember right.... it's about 9 miles via the connector trail to the Five Points Trails

Review: I have a job where I travel alot and I take my bike and hit trails that I'm close too. Ive rode some pretty fun trails but I think non better than this. After I figured out where the parking lots were and I parked in all of them except nickajack, my favorite was parking in Ascalon and on the way to 5 points I hit both hogsback trails and then your in 5 points parking lot. This is Disneyland for Mtn bikers. No major climbs and the downhills are so fast the momentun carries you half way up the adjacent hill. I had a smile on my face the whole time. All diamond trails are crazy fun. I freaking love this place. Georgia has to love mtn bikers because they have created an awesome place for us. 2 enthusiastic thumbs up.

Review: We loved this super flowy set of well maintained trails. There are many miles and we only got to ride about four or five of them. Let me say though that Slipenside is terrific! This is a one mile roller coaster run with awesome pumps, banks, and jump opportunities. The park signs say this is a black diamond but I would say it is just a fast blue. I hope to have a chance to get back here some day!

Review: First time to ride here and very impressed - nothing too hard - aside from finding the trailhead. Fun and flowing - some good climbing. Not sure why some of the reviews say there is no climbing. ( perhaps because I'm a 59 year old ) albeit fit solid intermediate rider . Favorites were Shale Flats and Kettle Bottom, but didn't get to ride everything. Oh well. Next time !

Review: These trails are really fun. What they lack in technical challenge they make up for in flow and playfulness. It's clear real Mtn bikers worked really hard to make these trails. There is a short section of technical boulder riding on Cap Rock trail I believe. Other highlights include "foot wall" (come down it from Windshot). Kettle boom I really liked and Bankhead is fun. I didn't bother with a map I just rode everything, some things twice. The area is pretty small and almost all the trails loop back on themselves. It's really hard to get lost. If you try to navigate with a map there are enough intersections to keep you reading more than riding. Just tear it up and ride. The Cloudland Connector Trail passes through the area on its way to Cloudland Canyon State Park which is spectacular and worth a visit. It also makes a great base camp. You can ride from there but based on other reviews here I drove over to 5 points from the park. I gave the area three stars b.c. It is small, not remote and doesn't have any sustained climbing or technical riding but it is still a blast and I caught myself grinning ear to ear on these fun little trails system.

Review: Fantastic trails! I'm blessed to live so close (chickamauga). I have rides a few of the trails and are hoping to make it back out there soon. My favorite so far is slickenslide. It's fast and not technical other than rolling Which I love. Trail conditions were fantastic as well.
