Trail Description
About this trail
This is the only Trail designated for bikes. It is mostly double track, well maintained, old service road type trail. Most of it has one lane (of the double track) that is well ridden, and the other lane loose gravel/rocks. Very Scenic with low grade hills that wind in and out along the shores of Lake Allatoona. Picnic tables along the route. There are a few turn-offs that are kinda grown in that take you out on some penninsulas for added mileage and scenary. This is a great little trail to take beginners, spouses, and kids out for their first rides. Entry fee for the park is a couple of bucks per car. Stay of the hiking trails no matter how tempting they look (Homestead trail is a nice looking singletrack), the park is pretty well patrolled.

Review: Family friendly gravel trail around what was once a campground on the lake. There can be lots of foot traffic, but walkers are easily avoided. Nothing technical, but a good place to build stamina and enjoy being outside. There are several picnic areas and beaches to take a rest.

Review: Easy gravel double track with some great views. The biggest downside is the parking fee. Good for a quick workout.

Review: Easy double track trail, nothing really exciting. Its nice to go to after a heavy rain and there are some other hiking only trails you can sneak into if you get bored riding in a circle. 5 bucks to park.

Review: This is everyone's bad weather trail. gravel/service road. Nothing to challenge you, great for newbies.

can take some of the hiking trails that tie into this and just plead ignorance is caught by rangers.

Only downside is the $5 parking fee

Review: This trail is perfect for what it is: a great beginner trail or a place to ride when conditions are too wet elsewhere. Great cardio workout if you do several laps. Excellent alternative to a road ride. I hardly see anyone on this trail. Great for beginners and families. Nothing technical at all.

Review: As many have said before me, this is a good alternative when other local trails are too wet or muddy to ride. Most of the trail is double track, gravel. There is very little rise and fall. All of the creek crossings are over bridges, so even after a good rain, you're not slogging through mud.
Even on cold, miserable days, this park appears to be more utilized than I would have expected. Therefore, be mindful about your speed relative to your sight lines around corners and such.

Review: Perfect mileage alternative when your favorite trail is too wet to ride. Multiple laps will give you a good workout.

Similar Trail: This is like a gravel version of the Silver Comet.
