Trail Description
About this trail
Single track with good, technical elevation and terrain changes. Some of the trail is not open to bikes at this time. Good for beginners (like myself), but challenging for the more advanced rider. Some trees down that you can't jump and some trail overgrowth make it hard to follow at times, but it is a Saturday well spent. Not much traffic on it either.

Review: I agree with previous posters: this trail is not worth your time. It is not well maintained and is more ideal for hikers and joggers.

Review: A fun trail if you want a change from other trails in the area. Its an out and back, not super technical. Like others have mentioned trail maintenance is hit or miss.

Review: I rode this trail 20 years ago and was surprised to see it still there, would have good flow if it not for downed trees every forth of a mile. Some are crossable but most are 2 feet high crossing the trail.

Review: I parked at the Ranger station which is right in the middle of this trail. First I rode out and back to the east which produced a fun and fast flowing ride. I then went to the west from the ranger station and I very quickly ran I to swamp like conditions. There was recently a controlled burn so some of the bridges going over streams were out of commission and water was just everywhere due to the recent large rainfall that all of GA had.

Would not be very kid friendly to ride this trail however it would be great for a hike. For the better riders I would not travel to ride here, go to Chewacla instead. Major CON, this trail isn't a loop.

Review: If you're in the area, I suggest first riding Chewacla and then Pleasant Hill. Do this only if you want more. The trail was overgrown in some places the last time I rode it, and just poorly maintained overall. It's quite bumpy, and doesn't have a whole lot of fun sections. But if you've done the others then I suppose it's worth a try.

Similar Trail: Pleasant Hill - Right across the road, but it's better and more travelled.

Review: This trail is mainly used by runners and hikers. I recommend checking out Pleasant Hill which is kept up better and only a couple miles down the road in the same Tuskegee National Forest.

Review: Rode this for the first time today. Could be fun in the winter, but seriously overgrown right now. Several downed trees and a lot of thick vegetation make some places pretty much unpassable on your bike. Overall, I was pretty disappointed since I drove from Montgomery, but I'll check it out again once the plants start dying off. If you live in/around Montgomery, stick to Swayback.

Review: Trail is very sandy with a bunch of pine straw and lots of little loose rock. Very fast paced on the way back but kinda slow coming in. Plenty of roots and erosion barriers to roll over.* Review edited 7/21/2008

Review: This trail is around 8 miles long, very fast downhill but very rough. Tight sections leading into small bridges, sand and pine straw abound. Good weekend trail, but plesant hill is about 5 miles down the road, which is a much better trail.

Similar Trail: Plesant hill is better, and Five miles away
