    I was passing through and thought I would give a new trail a try. Overall it is a very borderline intermediate trail system. I see this being a good after work riding spot to clear the mind or take the kids out to try their stuff.

    Reviewing Fall line trace:

    Very easy paved walking/biking trail with road crossing signage. Some construction work near downtown makes it a litttle confusing but with some minor navigating you can stay course. Great for exercise and road bikes. I've ridden it on Xc bike and it's smooth sailing. *Watch out for little ones beginning to ride. Perfect for family adventures.

    The trail is partially covered in areas by treetops and a good mix of forestry and city lights. 20 miles down and back. Easily doable by most ages and skill levels.

    If you are looking for a relatively easy xc experience that can get your heart pumping then this isn't bad. There are some techy challenging spots but not a ton. If you want to bomb downhills and smash jumps this is most definitely not your place. There is an overgrown skills section with a few not so skinny skinnies and a huge berm which serves no purpose as it is coming out of the skinny line and a berm seems overkill. Whatever. The single track is maintained by a good group of people and it is still fun to ride but seriously someone needs to build some proper flow trails in the Columbus area so you don't have to drive to auburn.

    I live very close by and come here about 3-4 times a week. Flat Rock has a very diverse set of trails from faster xc to a bit more technical singletrack. While the park has a very small amount of technical sections requiring a bit of skill, I think this is a great place to check-out. Its a very nice trail system for beginners learning to ride or those of us who just want to ride. CVA Sorba does a great job maintaining the trails and they are well marked.

    Nice place for an after work ride. Must try the half pipe! It is located on the right hand side of the road as you come up the hill to approach the trail head and main parking area. Reviews below are fair.

    Thiw is a very well thought out trail system. It is free to access the trail. You will see a few hikers and disk golf players. Squirrels are all over the place so be aware. SORBA does a great job of maintaining the trail. It is well marked is most places. My Garmin measured about 10.2 miles for the entire trail.

    Super fast and flowy trails! The only downfall is that there is not much elevation, so if you are looking for a challenging, hilly ride this place is not for you. The waterfall was unexpected and beautiful! I took my girlfriend here to show her the falls the next day after my visit. From someone who comes from the mountains of WV and used to technical, rocky trails, this park was a nice change of pace. Also a great place to teach someone the ropes who is new to mtbing. Also, the trail flows through open grassy fields that overlook the body of water and the falls. Super pretty.

    Nice park and trails. It has trail markings for beginner (green), intermediate (blue), and expert (black). I stuck to intermediate and felt the trails were appropriately marked my comfort level. Many of the green and blue trails share the same paths and my beginner girlfriend found these sections too hard for her. They included climbs, small rock gardens, roots, and some tight swithcbacks. The Sidewinder & UFO sections were perfect for her skill level and she rode them again while I finished the rest of the trail. I suggest true green beginners get comfortable riding the Sidewinder without riding around any obstacle challenges before tackling the trails around the lake. These are super trails to build your skills and confidence. If you are just advancing to intermediate or a strong beginner, you should do fine on either the blue or green trails. I did not attempt the advanced trails. Check out the trail map in the photo gallery, and print it out to take with you if able.

    Had a ton of fun. Not too challenging but there was enough to make it fun. Great ride.

    Pretty fun after work ride. Nothing too challenging, pretty flowy in some parts. Plenty of roots, and the half pipe is sweet. It isn't incredibly well maintained, though.

    This trail is definitely for beginners but fun nonetheless! My only recommendation would be is to have better markings on the colored routes. After riding in a dense part and coming out, we found it a little difficult and confusing on which way to go. There were parts where you could have gone 2-3 different ways so had to guess on the route.

    For a local trail to the public it's great! Like one reviewer mentioned, great for a quick after work ride. I ride Flat Rock very often because of its convenience. If you start at the main head, the first section is great to warm you up. After that, there are a couple sections for the more advanced marked "skull/cross bones". You can skip these sections if you want. The overall trail can get you into shape for ANY trail. Once you've mastered Flat Rock shoot for time. Also the locals are always welcoming new comers to join. Every Saturday at 9am Ride On Bikes has a group for all levels to ride. During the week there are night rides on Tuesday and Thursdays. Great trail to ride and meet new riders!

    Nice trail. I was vacationing in Pine Mtn and found this pretty easily based in the map. The first couple of miles are benign. Flat twisty single track with very few obstacles. Once you come out of that section,which is also by the lot for the main trailhead, you start to hit a few fun sections with some root and rock obstacles along with a few small, technical climbs. Overall, I really enjoyed the trail. I'm from MI and one of the things I enjoy abt riding in the SE is climbing more than home. Didn't really get that here, but still had fun.

    Very nice e trail and park. There is something for every rider....beginner to advanced. The green and blue trails that run along the east side of the lake (paved bike trail side) are a blast and flow nicely. The green trail that stretches through the open grassy areas near the lake offer nice elevation changes with no technical areas. The green and blue trails on the west side can get confusing at some points but offer a very scenic ride. The hard core bikers will enjoy the Reds and Blacks near the center of the park that run close to the lakes eastern banks.

    Very fun trail, the markings are much better than they were a year ago. I actually knew where I was going this time. There's also a few new obstacles which help to keep this flat course interesting.

    The trails aren't marked very well. There are lots of trail heads, but they aren't really marked. But once you figure it out it has something for everybody. Great if your looking for a quick ride after work.

    Good family trail. Nothing too challenging save for 2-3 short bits and other than trying to follow it. A few more signs are needed where you have to go through open areas to get to the next section. We were there on a wet/sprinkling day and the trail held up well considering the red clay. A bike wash would be a great addition.

    Great set of trails! I am an intermediate biker and really enjoyed these trails. Most were smooth, fast and flowing, however there were other trails that had plenty of roots and rocks. I would definitely recommend these trails.
