Mountain Biking Haw Creek Park

****   Add a review
#47 of 397 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#1,176 in the world

A three mile loop with few challenging features.  Trails are wide open, smooth, and have little sustained elevation gain.  There is a small pump track and skills area adjacent to the parking lot. Well suited for novice and beginner riders of all ages. Changes directions daily so follow signs.  Foot and cycle traffic travel in opposite directions.

    Solid beginner trail. Very short but well maintained. Overall fun, just not enough length or elevation change to warrant higher rating.

    A challenge, but a lot of fun for an out of shape 40 year old who hasn't been on a bike for a very long time. Plenty of roots, rocks, tight turns and fun downhills to build up the confidence of a true beginner (but never feels unsafe.)

    I'd imagine it's still fun for intermediate and advanced riders as well to go at with some speed.

    Easy, wide trails. Nothing super interesting but good for beginners.

    Pretty flat. I brought someone here for there first ride and it was a bit difficult for them but as an intermediate rider I'd say it is a bit boring. Very pretty views. The areas built for more advanced riders are fun and can be challenging.

    Great first ride, trail was rated easy with some moderate sections. Reviews are pretty close on this. I am a new rider, and the trail was fun with challenge for new rider. Very enjoyable and well maintained. It has some technical sections for new rider, and some great down hill sections. Over all for my first ride in over 20 years - great starting point.

    Beginner, but still fun. The like the fast double track to the bottom after crossing the parking lot. Fun, but short intermediate section. It best run the Sunday direction. 2 or 3 laps round is a fun little workout.

    Well maintained trail that was a decent challenge for a beginner. I also really enjoyed the pump track.

    Pretty level, about 3 miles for one loop. Good track for beginners.

    I just recently discovered this place, and have ridden the trail four times so far. It's fast, relatively easy, and very well maintained. I usually see a few other cars in the lot but hardly run into them on the trail.

    It was amazing. There is so many things to do like the pump track and some jumps and practice race coarse.

    I really enjoyed this trail. It was my first trail and after doing this for 2 yrs its still one i can easily go back to. The pump track is a great place for people to learn how to really ride.

    Rode last month with whole family including 3 kids 9,8,7 and no issues. Lots of fun, two issue with marked paths not being clear but you figure it out in a minute.

    If you're looking for exercise or a family friendly trail this one is very nice but it's not really a mountain biking destination for technical difficulty. Other than some dips in the brief intermediate leg it's mostly wide flat sandy walking paths with some light gravel patches. There's also a small pump track.

    Been trying to visit all the trails within a 30-mile radius of my home. Tried Haw Creek Park today and was pleasantly surprised. Loved the escape from ROOTS that I'm used to everywhere around here; makes it a fast and fun trail (something different). Even though it's a short ride at 3-miles, those miles are a beginners blast and a nice little workout. If I lived closer it would be a fav after-work spot. Short inclines/declines and easy, and like others said; push the speed up and you'll be rewarded with a lot nice banked turns and speed.

    Great track for beginners. There's an optional 5 min gravel climb at the beginning to "warm up" or you can choose to skip it by hitting the trail at the intersection near the park entrance. Great for families too as there's a nature playground for kids. My wife and kids play at the playground while ride. Fun for the whole family.

    Rode Haw Creek yesterday a few days after a bunch of rain. There are at least 4 wet areas to cross over, including 2 flowing creek crossings. The tracks are pretty sticky, which makes it fun and fast. Try not to scare the walkers and their doggies !
