Mountain Biking Rocky Mountain Recreation Area

***   Add a review
#258 of 395 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#10,962 in the world

All new trails. Some trails are old grown up hiking trails that they redid for
mountain bikers. Some trails aren't worth the ride but there are some gems in
there. There are maps at the information center. Most trails are singletrack.
There is a fire road or two in the mix.

    For a beginner trail, it does have some endurance challenges. Currently has some trees down that you have to go around. Fun trail ending with a long, smooth, paved road leading back to the parking lot. Variety of trail surfaces so be alert for trail markings...woods, powerlines, and paved road.

    10 miles only if you ride the 'hikers only' trails along with the designated bike trails (6 miles). The newer sections need to be ridden... they are covered with deep pinestraw and pine cones, twigs, small branches, etc. Easy/Beginner doesn't mean you won't pedal... slight elevation changes keep you cranking. The older section of the trail (up/down the mountain) are nice - nothing technical, just a little climbing. Overall, enjoyed it, but don't see a reason to return unless I just happen to be nearby. $5 to park. Porcelin toilets available. Beautiful area.

    Trails are good for beginners, fun for a lazy ride. Trail heads are not marked well, may have to spend time trying to find them. Rocky Mountain has lot of potential.

    None of the trails have names yet. Some of the trails aren't worth riding but there are some gems in the network. I believe that once the good trails get ridden more and the authorities build more trails that it will become a whole lot better place.
