Mountain Biking Rock Chapel

***   Add a review
#219 of 393 mountain bike trails in Georgia

Technical single track on and around slickrock granite. Tons of exploring potential - looks like a 1 mile loop was recently cleared and is rideable as of January 2021

    This trail has been freshly cleared. Logs cut with some bunny hops required. Several creek crossings. Only one short stretch on granite. This is where I lost the trail for the return loop. I hiked the trail to investigate first. Hats off to whomever invested so much effort!

    So we found the trail entrance but the trail quickly vanished as we went into the forest. Does anyone still ride this trail who could either show us the trail path or help us maintain the trail? It's a really beautiful place that has so many huge boulders that could act as some awesome features. I think we need just a few of us and some local permission to bring this trail back to life. For right now, there's nothing there. But again, can anyone help show us the trail path?

    Not worth checking out. 20 years or so ago this was one of the go to trails for the metro Atlanta area, but was apparently on private land and there were rumors of people getting tires slashed in the parking lot and of trail sabotage, so people stopped riding there. As far as I know it is overgrown or leaf covered for the most part and impossible to follow, especially if you never rode there when it was a happening trail. I know the trail head (or what used to be the trail head) is impossible to find unless you rode there back in the day. This was our go to trail for night riding back in the late 90's.

    I saw this trail here on singletracks and decided to go ride it and see what it was like. When I got there I didn't see a trailhead. I looked all over the area and didn't find any trail. This "trail" is just a waste of time.

    Get ready to explore! The trails here aren't marked and in fact, they aren't really ridden very much which can make route finding difficult. Expect to find down trees, sticks, and overgrowth along this trail but the reward is some pretty amazing scenery and awesome terrain.

    I know a little - some of the trails are on county park land and some venture into the quarry. It is an old trail system and the locals do not seem to care any longer. I have talked to some old timers who park at the school and ride over to the parking lot to go around the gate. The trail entrance is down the hill next to the big rocks. send me an email hoppingbird at gmail if you want more info.
