Mountain Biking Tribble Mill Park

A lot of these trails are easy doubletrack. But, there's a lot of really cool single track branching off. I go here once a week. It's a little small for my taste, but it's nice. Not too hard, not too easy. Some of the trails are a little hard to find due to the construction that's going on. Some are actually no longer in existence in parts, but, with a little work, you can find your way.

Night riding at specific times, with approved leaders only.

    First time riding and I was pleasantly surprised at the offering between beginner and intermediate trails. If they had some (or any) trail markers this trail would be more fun to ride. Thank goodness I was riding with someone familiar with the trail or I would have been totally lost.

    Very poor signage. Lots of trail junctions so its a guessing game. Use lakes and road as land marks to get back to parking lot. Some nice beginers single track with inclines not hills.

    I rode this on my way through Atlanta to scout it out for the Chainbuster series race this fall. I have to agree with other reviewers that it is confusing and poorly marked. I was pretty annoyed about the whole deal until I found the slick-rock portions. These are really cool sections with lush mossy springs running down them and all kinds of wildlife. I saw several deer and a humongous turtle. I would not recommend you go out of your way for these trails. Fort Yargo is just up the road and a lot more fun!

    Pretty disappointed with this trail. The surface of the trails is pretty smooth minus being leaf covered. My biggest issue with this trail is it's poorly marked and confusing. Adding some signs along the trails would go a long way and would be more inviting for newcomers. I rode about 8 miles here and got lost so many times I decided to take the paved road back to the parking lot. And yes I had a map. I would love to try the trail again if they added some signs

    I rode this trail during a Chain Buster 3-Hour race. Since it was a race, the course was very well marked. Even so, you could tell that without the race tape, it would be hard to navigate your way around the park.

    Much of what we rode didn't look like it had seen much use. Lots of pine needles and leaves covering the trail.

    All that said, the trail makes for a tough race course. It's very tight with little room for passing. The climbs are steep and many. The descents don't really give you a chance to open it up or to recover. This is a hard trail to eat or drink on, it's just relentless.

    Great race course. I probably wouldn't head up here to ride just for fun though as there are better options closer to me in Atlanta.

    Trails are in good shape with some technical sections. Trail is not well marked the first time I rode it. It comes out to a big flat rock that you ride on then have to figure out where to go. Great trails but not clearly marked. Make sure you take a map or have full phone battery when you go out for the first time.

    This is my personal favorite local ride spot. Yes, it's not marked well, at all.
    A lot of visitors may not find all the features such as the granite passes & other various things this place has.
    A lot of it flows well & has a good variety, plus it's nice to mix up laps & directions to ride, keeping it fresh.
    It just takes some ride time to learn the way around for a new visitor.

    I want to like this trail. It has so much potential. The riding is actually really good. The problem lies in the fact that it is so poorly marked. Unless you are familiar with the trail system you just ride around aimlessly. There are no markers or directional markers to tell where to go. In fact, this is the worst trail I have ever rode in reference to letting the rider know which trail to take. The worst part about it is that it's been like this for several years, and no one from the SORBA group that maintains it seems to care enough to rectify the situation.

    Great trail nearby with a few good uphill parts. Trail goes right by the lake with some good views.

    There is no real trail map or organization to the trails here however this brings some excitement with the exploration required to figure everything out and to find the harder obstacles. I was slightly disapointed at first but as I started discovering more trails and more obstacles this system became surprisingly fun.

    I felt like I was scammed when I went to this trail. I expected granite and as a person who has ridden the GHIP trails I had some expectations. I got to the granite and got really excited and just like that it was over!!!! Come on, there's probably only 20 yards of granite. Anyhow the rest of the trails are ok, I liked them the first time I came here but the second time I became quickly bored, yet if you're getting into mtb you'll probably really like them. Harbins park is in the area and so is Yargo so hit those up instead of this one for more fun.

    This trail has been good so far. The trail has no real map and requires some exploration. The trail I have explored so far had lots of granite spots, several log jumps and log overs, and one semi-technical rocky section. This has been a good trail and I am looking forward to exploring it more.

    Tribble Mill has a lot to explore and a good amount of variety. I like the mix of sand, dirt, granite, and miscellaneous roots and rocks. There is no signage and the trails split off in every direction so it's hard to know where you are, but good for exploring. I like the ride around the smaller lake and I like the ride down to the huge granite exposure with a 20' river crossing (careful its slippery). The trails are overgrown in a number of places especially close to the lake's edge.

    First time riding this trail and I can confirm that most the reviews are quite accurate. Lots of trails sectioning off for the larger double wides. Spent 3 hours today and had a great ride the entire time. Has some great "hidden" features that take a little looking but its all worth it. Equal climbing and downhill runs with nothing to technical. Great for someone wanting to get into the sport!

    Trails are as easy or hard as you make them Try to find the "Roller Coaster" that was my favorite section of trail.

    I rode these trails for the first time today and will definitely be back now that I know my way around. I rode for 3 hours and was thoroughly entertained. There are a lot of fast downhill runs on double and single track. The longer you go uphill the longer you'll go down obviously. Well Worth checking out especially if you live near by.

    These trail seem to get better every time I ride them, thanks to GATR. I like using the wide gravel paths to climb and descending on the singletrack. Exposed granite sections are a little tricky to follow but add to the fun of these trails.

    from the slickrock to the singlerack if you can find them. this park has alot to offer. isnt marked, so you really have to scope out some of these trails. alot of the singletrack in this park is on the right when going in crossing the bridge.

    Never before have my expectations for a trail been exceeded as much as they were at Tribble Mill. Based on the reviews here, I wasn't expecting much but we rode for 2.5 hours today with very little doubling back, and I know we didn't ride all of the singletrack. Most of the trails are in great shape, and there is a lot of variety from open granite sections to windy fast singletrack to sloppy creek crossing. I'll definitely go back in the future, and recommend this place to anyone in the area.
