Trail Description
About this trail
Twisting, rooty singletrack loops through Georgia pine forest. The main or "advanced" loop is about 8 miles all told with a couple options to make things easier or to shorten the ride. Bring a map or a friend - this place can be confusing despite the (minimal) signage. This trail will host a Dirty Spokes 6 hour race in 2009.

Review: Way too rooty. No flow. No fun.

Review: As others said, the best MTB trail system near Athens. I have not ridden out there in a while but the main loop is really fun. Very pretty woods and you feel like you are out in a remote forest. Really nice single track. It's pretty similar to Chicopee woods. Not quite as much climbing as Chicopee but there are still come tough climbs. The advanced section has a few tough technical sections.

Review: Great trail. I've been riding it since it opened in about 2000 and I never get tired of it. Rooty, rocky, hills, creek crossings, bridge crossings, flowy sections, technical sections. Very well marked. About 11 miles when you include the "expert" section. There are a couple of creek crossings and well made bridge crossings. The expert section includes a steep climb that is tough to do. Heritage is a rooty and rocky technical trail and you have to pay attention to the trail obstacles. A fast loop for me is about 1hr and 5 mins. Thanks to those who maintain the trail

Review: Great technical trail. Probably the most challenging near Athens. A lot of fun and options to skip the hardest sections if needed.

Review: Pretty good trail probably the best one near Athens. With that said though it is definitely washed out and rough so forget about fast and flowy. There are no long climbs or descents and it has a good amount of miles which makes it kind of nice.

Review: Trail is in perfect shape, and was getting lots of bike, foot, and equestrian use this morning. One large tree across trail on uphill portion across from end of "Boy Scout Trail", about 0.25 miles in, otherwise, 100% rideable! Awesome, awesome, awesome!
