Mountain Biking Hart Farm

****   Add a review
#90 of 393 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#3475 in the world

Approximately 11 miles worth of tight, technical singletrack. Trails pop in
and out of the woods and are essentially bisected by a power line
easement. Lots of off camber stuff and roots. Climbs are short but can be
steep and punchy in places. Trail caretaker does a GREAT job making this
place feel welcoming with a picnic area at the parking lot and a few chairs
and tables placed along the trails for rest areas.

    Well maintained, excellent signage. Very scenic "old growth" hardwood bottoms. Drawback is all the roots that come with the hardwoods. Well worth the $5 donation. A true gem in such a small town.

    Loved the trail! Very challenging overall almost 30 miles of trail! Incredibly great trail manager in Jimmy Scott, but they take very good care of all their riders! Can't wait to ride it again!

    This is to finish the previous review. Eastern half is lower and can be wetter, but better for speed. There is about 15 miles. Hart Farm has camping, TV, microwave, place to barbecue, wash off bikes, and plenty more. Great for groups

    These trails are well maintained thanks to Sockman (Jimmy Scott), the most hospitable person you will ever meet. The western half has plenty of climbs for a great work out. My favorite was Sockman trail because of the flow and closeness to the creek. At Mosquito Crossing Jimmy has ice water, granola bars, benches for a much needed rest.

    The trail is in really good shape right now (2/1/17). Jimmy "Sock Man" keeps the place amazingly clean and trees may fall but they don't rest long, he gets them out of there asap. I'm coming to really love this trail and especially the Hoedown Loop.

    Clearly the local riders love this trail. It has more places to sit and hang out than I have ever seen at any trail. Very cool area to gather and rest up or cool down. Gotta say however when you are the only one there,never seen it before and it's kind of misty and early morning low light....I'm pretty sure I heard banjos in the distance and it made me ride faster. The skeleton riding his bike at the entrance may have affected me this way. All kidding aside this is a nice trail system and filled with short alternative trails, creek crossing, steep drops, short steep climbs and some double track to use the big ring. Gotta visit this one if in the area.

    Looooots of roots. Plenty of technical sections so it's impossible to get much of a flow. Time limitations didn't allow me to hit all the trails, so I'll definitely go back. Like the set up with the tech trails breaking off of the main trail, so the parking lot is never far away. Good ride.

    Nice hand cut trails with a good amount of mileage. The Corry House, located 2.5 miles east, also has another 8 miles. Hart Farm trails are all pretty twisty with a decent amount of somewhat technical areas due to roots, rocks, and tight trees. If you aren't into twisty, rooty rides this one won't be for you. Trails are well marked. Lots of small short cuts but you didn't come all the way out here just to cut the ride short, did you? The western half of the trails drain better and were more well ridden than the eastern half, but the eastern half also looks to have been built much more recently.
