Noticed a post on a couple of the other Marietta City Trails that they were lame. Well, I suppose if you drive long distance just to check out the trails it might not be that impressive. However, you have to remember these trails are in the green space throughout the city. If you figure out a route, or ask, you can make a good 12 to 16 mile loop using a little bit of streets to connect. The RVMBA is building more trails in hopes to connect most of the city trails by singletrack. That is our goal.
NOTE: We have completed a new portion of the Frontier Loop in the Kris-Mar Woods. It's on the outside and we've changed the name of the old 100 yard long road grade to Big Oak Trail. The new addition is about 6/10th mile long and winds through the Kris-Mar Woods.
Our goal is to connect Kris-Mar trails to the new Cisler trail with singletrack through another greenspace. We will continue to work on building more trails within and outside the City of Mariettal.
What makes these trails so unique, is the fact you can start in town, ride through a bit of downtown Marietta, jump into singletrack to get from point a to point b and just enjoy some singletrack without driving to your locations. When done, just ride up to one of the many downtown pubs / eateries and cool down over a brew and some food.
Middle School (or Jr.High) trails nearby, the High School trails with a new 1.2 mile long Cisler Trail.
