Trail Description
About this trail
Currently, there are three loops at Mt Tabor Park totaling about 8-10 miles. The the loops are stacked in a "snowman" formation and make them progressively harder. The trails are directional depending on the day of the week. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, & Sunday are clockwise. Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday are counter clockwise. Almost all of the initial two trails are singletrack and there seems to be a large amount of unused woods back there just begging for new trails. These are NICE tight, twisty, technical, rocky, singletrack that makes you pay for your gains but they won't totally sap your flow and keep you at a snails pace either. Many parts of these trails reminded me a lot of Blankets Creek just up the road in Cherokee county and in my book that's a HUGE compliment. Keep your eyes open for dogs and hikers but they are few and far between.

Night riding allowed, but the park closes at 11pm.

Review: Very tight and very rocky. Hard to maintain flow. I ate it pretty hard on a blind 180 downhill turn on top of a rock group. Good for practicing low speed cornering and technical stuff though. Not many long descents but I did enjoy the challenge of the technical style climbs

Similar Trail: Similar to Big Creek just slower

Review: Not much flow. Good for practicing tight turns on hills and handling rock gardens. No big climbs or decents.

Review: Just finished this ride and overall I'd say I have mixed feelings about this trail system. I rode all 3 loops clockwise, completing the course in just under an hour as a pretty average rider. Most of the elevation change is at a pretty low gradient, so combined with the switchbacks it's more-so a test of patience and endurance. The first half of the trail, clockwise, was pretty easy with little worth mentioning; relatively smooth and consistent, though the slippery pine straw and frequent switchbacks prevented any real speed. I found myself at the 3rd trail surprisingly quick. Still little to mention until arriving back around to the 2nd half of the middle trail. Lots of roots and little rocks cover a majority of the trail here, so be prepared for a slow, bumpy ride at some point. 2nd half (again while going clockwise) of the most interior loop was probably the most entertaining with some larger, technical features, more frequent change in elevation, and several bridges crossing back and forth over small streams. It was a pretty easy, enjoyable ride; it kept my heart rate up, but rarely spiked it. I'll probably ride it a second time before heading home, but doubt I'll be back any time soon due to living closer to Blankets Creek. Still it's a good ride if you live nearby.

Review: Rode this trail while visiting my brother and they only had two loops at that point. I thought it was a fun little trail overall. As others have said it isn't demanding but for a quick trip it is a nice little trail to get out in the woods! The trailbuilders have done a great job with what they had!!

Review: Ride the trail cw and in my opinion this direction is the most fun. Having said that, this trail isn't much fun! If you're into roots and rocks and no flow you'll enjoy this trail. It's one of the few options to get in a ride when Allatoona is closed. I've ridden here several times and every time I ask myself....why?

Review: 3 chained loops with technical terrain of roots, loose rocks and sand. Relatively small hills but a good endurance trail for cross country. Only natural obstacles. Surprising number of hikers.

Review: I really enjoy Mt. Tabor. None of the trails are really challenging, technically, but its a fun ride either way. Booger is the most technical, probably, and Rocks of Doom isn't too bad, and Pine Pong has some quick switch backs that aren't too bad as long as you're not dodging hikers. The hikers don't tend to head down to toward Rocks of Doom or Booger, so you're pretty much alone there. The only thing that I have a gripe with is the fact that the signs for the clockwise entrance isn't easy to find for first timers. I actually went the wrong way the first time I went out there and that could've been problematic if it were on a busy weekend.

Review: Rode this for the first time today, mainly because Allatoona Creek was not open. It was a decent change. If I could rate it in increments I would give it a 3.5 overall. I rode it CW (Saturday) and did all three loops. Ended up hooking up with other riders along the way and rode with them, which made the ride more enjoyable. The first mile or so to me has the best flow for a little speed. The Booger trail winds a lot through the pines. Some cool sections in this but also some technical riding too with rocks and roots with a lot of winding. The Rocks of Doom was pretty fun and had some technical sections as well. This also had the toughest climb, though not too tough. I'd come back here again, but if I had my choice I wish there was a few more sections that had a little more flow. But then, for that, I could just head over the Allatoona Creek (which might be why this one is more windy and technical to mix it up?)

Similar Trail: Mason's Bridge w/ more technical & more turns
