Review: First mile was deceptive, bark covered hiking trail. Double track beyond needed maintenance, was fun downhill but the walk back out was gruelling. Good training workout. We saw a bear between mile 3-4. He was headed away from us at a run.

Review: a little disappointed on this trail... most of stoneplace is doubletracks - not my favorite. It's all downhill from the interpretive center and then work your way back up... The Lake is beautiful at the end, which is what makes this trail worth it. But instead I';d ride HighBluff trail over and over.. this one is fun, fast and technical. Need some maintenance, lots of trees falling over the trail forcing you to get out of the bike and jump some hoops :-)

Review: The Stoneplace trail is pretty bland. I rode this a while back right before I really got into mountain biking. It was just kind of plain doubletrack the whole way. Although, there were a few fun short, steeper descents along with some loose rock in some places. The end at the boat ramp on the lake was pretty. Then I had to turn around ride uphill slightly the whole way back. Seeing as I rode this pretty easily as a beginner, I would have to say it should be rated "Easy." I remember riding part of the High Bluff trail, and turning around on it because somehow I wasn't sure where it came out. The part that I rode was singletrack and a lot more fun than Stoneplace. After reading the previous post, I am disappointed that I only rode a little part of it.

Review: Trek7k summed up the Stoneplace trail pretty well in his review so I won't really go into detail on it. All in all, I really feel like they missed the boat on that trail. Luckily, I also rode the High Bluff Trail and looped it into Stoneplace for an extra 2 miles or so. While Stoneplace is bland and boring, High Bluff is the type of singletrack trail every rider craves. If this trail could be lengthened I'd definitely be back to ride it again and again. Tight singletrack with technical rock crossings and a creek crossing and an optional spot on the trail to sneak off to one of gorge overlooks. If only there was more than 2.2 miles. :( If you are going to give Tallulah Gorge a shot on the bike, make sure you don't miss the High Bluff trail.

Review: $5 parking fee to park at the trailhead. The doubletrack/forest road down to Tugaloo Lake is washed out and rocky so be prepared! Just make sure you save enough energy for the climb back up to the car! No views to speak of on the main 5-mile out and back but the cove at the bottom of the trail is super cool. Too bad no swimming is allowed, this spot looks like a major swimmin' hole.

Similar Trail: Reminds me of the old Sope Creek trails without the joggers.

Review: Road trail last weekend and the previous review still holds true. Trail was pretty good, but really washed out. I combined this trail with the High Bluffs trail in the park to mix it up a bit.

Review: A down and back up about 5mi in and 5 back. You will ride in after getting a free permit from the office/museum from the parking lot to the trail head the way you drove in. A few small climbs and downhills then it goes pretty much all down. Can't get much speed up due to all the loose rock,sand and baby heads all over the place. Definitly keep your eyes ahead at all times. The ride takes you to tulogoo lake for a nice break and a dip if you so desire then its back out and up. The climb out isnt that strenous but like I said before lots of loose rock,sand, etc.

Review: First half is 90% downhill, then back up the same trail. Double track the whole way, and not too steep. Trail is well marked. Nothing special here. Stonewall Creek is much better and is only 5 miles away.

Similar Trail: Do Stonewall Creek instead or in addition to this trail.

Review: Added a new 1 mile singletrack loop off of main trail....90% down hill. Low technical, alot of gravel, few 1-2 foot deep ruts. VERY FAST RIDE!

Similar Trail: Stonewall...the last mile or so. The first 3 is a constant CLIMB!
