Review: There are a lot of decent trails at ATL Beach now. 5.93 miles was my last estimate in 7/2018. There is an extra 4 miles or so of paved paths also. I wish more people would ride there, I get tired of wearing all the spider webs. I posted a google earth map with an overlay of all the trails I've found so far in the gallery. hope it helps.

Review: Thanks to the awesome guys who built more connector trails recently. I was able to get 9 miles almost 100% on trails by doing every trail both ways. Add 3 miles riding the paved path back and forth and you have a solid 12 mile ride. The newest connector trail is a tighter and more technical trail. It's quickly became one of my favorite. It's located to the left of the tennis courts (if you're looking from the tennis court entrance). The start is just to the right of the larger double track entrance. Come ride!

Review: UPDATE. Completed a few more connector trails. Thanks to Cameron for posting a map on his last review. Working on make shift signs and arrows now, should be up in near future. Great biking / hiking trail if you live close by.

Review: ***Updated Trail Map as of December 2nd, 2016. Look in the trail gallery to find it or download it from *** Since my last review in January of this year, the paved trail has been completed and the mountain bike trails were scattered and chopped up. Almost a month ago, I arrived to find that someone had built connector trails to connect the remaining ones. This has breathed new life into this trail and allows for longer rides on dirt without having to hit the pavement. Someone has also been keeping up with cleaning the trails and cutting fallen trees. Thank you to whoever has been doing these things! Unfortunately, even with the connectors, there are only 3.3 miles of dirt trails. Thankfully they are bidirectional so you can technically get 6.6 unique miles in if you do it all in reverse. Add in the 1.8 mile paved trail and making 10 miles in a day isn't too hard to do.

Review: Good News I'm not sure who to thank but someone is cutting new trails at the beach since many got bulldozed for the paved paths. The majority of the new trails are switchbacks on the west side of the northern lake. they are a little bumpy right now, They could really use some riders to ride and smooth them out.

Review: Trails are getting better. Able to get onto new cut-thrus & turn around without dismounting.

Review: Construction of paved trails (assumed) makes the trail discontinuous. This is an OK trail for a short anaerobic ride and for improving bike skills. Some dead ends where the construction has cut across the trail. Expect to dismount to turn around. Lots of roots. Some very steep places. I would not recommend riding here if a another trail is an option.

Review: This is my local trail and the one I learned to love mountain biking on; that's why I was sad when I showed up to clean up some of the trails today and almost 1/4 of them were demolished... They are currently cutting down trees for a paved path (or at least that's what I heard) right through the middle of the trails. In the main section, half of the trails are completely gone and on the other side they haven't started, but I can see the markings that will at least run through a lot of the trails. If you do want to ride, THERE ARE TWO TRAILS TO THE LEFT OF THE MAIN ENTRANCE IN THE WOODS and THERE IS A SHORT TRAIL RUNNING ALONG THE SIDE OF CRANE ROAD NEXT TO THE TENNIS COURTS. It doesn't look like they will be ruined. I want to get out there and clean them up some so we have something at least... RIP Trails at the Beach... you weren't great, but you were ours...
