    IMO, this is not an Intermediate trail. It's at best a solid Beginner trail. It's flat and at times flowy but, that's about it. If it weren't for some occasional small dips, I would have given it a 2 star rating. It's a nice trail for those looking to hone their skills mountain biking.

    Enjoyed this trail, though the log jump could use a bit more of a run in.

    This trail is a load of fun. It has a little bit of everything and flows very nicely. Highly recommended.

    We rode this trail yesterday... (Saturday) so the trail was counter clockwise. The first part of the trail was pretty rough. (Lots of roots, rocks, Ect.) but nothing too difficult. Once you pass through that first part. The trail opens up and gets pretty fast and flows nicely. If you are a bigginer, be careful and have fun!

    Good trail for intermediates, though beginners ready to next step can do it. Includes several short, steep rises and multiple dips and valleys. The steep wood ramp over a fallen tree is tricky first couple of times, especially in the counter clockwise direction. Two rock gardens can be a little daunting, but when you carry speed into them, they are easier to get through. There is one moderate rock obstacle that is tougher riding clockwise and will take practice to learn to navigate.

    The extension is mainly more of the same and a good way to add more riding time.

    This is my favorite trail at 'Toona. Has some challenges and good flow, not too crowded. Nice varied terrain. Easy to log a lot of miles real fast.

    I rode this trail today after riding Turtle Back Loop earlier in the week and I've got to say this is a slight step up from Turtle Back Loop. I'd classify this trail as "Intermediate plus" because there were a few spots that seemed near impossible to complete unless you were fairly experienced. Examples? There was a section that you basically had to climb up a few large boulders that I just could not fathom how to navigate (though going opposite direction would be a drop that I wouldn't feel comfortable making either). The climbs were tougher and there were more obstacles overall compared to Turtle Back Loop. I also completed the secondary loop, which was quite confusing with a secondary entrance from what appeared to be a neighborhood. I also appeared to be the first rider on the trail of the day, evident by the number of spiders I picked up on the ride.

    Overall, I worked much harder and had better "exercise" with this trail, but I found Turtle Back Loop much more fun.

    Great trail. I used to live in GA and rode this trail all the time. Even better since they added on the extra 2 miles. The trail is pretty smooth and has a little elevation change. It will give you a workout if you combine it with some of the other trails that are connected to this one like Rusty bucket and Turtle Back

    I started riding for cross training purposes late last year (I'm a distance runner) and I've ridden most of the trails in and around Atlanta Metro. I've come to like these Trails at Allatoona Creek alot. Mason's Bridge Loop is comprised of 2 loops that total about 5 miles. You get to them via the Old Stilesboro Rd Parking Trailhead and biking to and thru Rusty Bucket and the Mason's Bridge connector. No major climbs, but lot's of ups and downs, with plenty of flow. A really great intermediate trail.

    I have been riding avidly for about 20 years.. From Utah so i prefer (mountain trails, pinhoti, tsali etc.. but i was very surprised at the quality of this trail for the area. Smooth, fast , fun... Some good rock drops if you take the right line. Had a little Brown Wave (FATS) trail in some areas. Great morning/ evening of riding when coupled with the turtle back. Excited to see new trail developments..

    The mileage is wrong, its actually a 5 mile trail. It's an extremely tough trail for a beginner, be in tip top shape or you'll be walking a bit. I had a blast though. Watch out for runners and horses.

    Another .5mile loop has been added - no technical features (yet?) - also a connector to the neighborhood behind the trail - so watch for more walkers. No directional signs yet, so possible wrong way traffic.

    I consider this closer to intermediate rather than beginner due to some climbing, tight turns, and deep dips... * Review edited 8/28/2012

    This trail is on the other side of the road from Turtleback Creek. Park in the lot on Old Stilesboro and go thru the fence and follow the gravel road back on the right about 1/2 mile and it leads to "Rusty Bucket". Do Rusty Bucket and at about the halfway point of Rusty Bucket you will see signs to Masons Bridge... follow the logging road all the way under the bridge and after you come out from under the bridge the trail is on the right. Plenty of great signage to direct you..
    Review: Really fun fast and flowy. Has some great "pump" sections and dipsy do's.. not much elevation change. A great ride to add after you do the Turtlebacks..
