Mountain Biking Tributary

**   Add a review
#310 of 395 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#11733 in the world

Technical. Lots of rocks & roots. Very primitive trail. There are a few wooden
features built in there. Very technical climbs and descents with tight
switchbacks and loose rock. This is NOT a beginners trail. It is for advanced
intermediate to expert riders unless you want to do a lot of walking. Work
is in progress on these trails and as things get worked out this should be a
fun and challenging area to ride.

    This is now inaccessible. Tyler Perry bought most of the land behind tributary subdivision and put up fence across the dirt road that led down to the creek. Access to Sweetwater creek and these trails is blocked permanently.

    This trail has not been maintained and is currently overgrown. I tried it today since its close to my home. But had a hard time finding a parking spot for my car and there is no clear trailhead either. It's not best part of town so expect quite a bit of empty plastic bottles and empty cans thrown in the greens around the starting point.
    Once you've discovered the trail you will find some technical obstacles and steep climbs. But after about 1.3 mile the trail dead ends into fallen trees and bushes. It's overgrown and impossible to continue unto the old pathway that probably once was there. For discovery hiking and scavenger hunts it's probably a great area along a nice creek. Careful for snakes and spiders though. The area is very remote and critters rule over here.
    For MTB rides, it's no longer suited. Don't waste your time getting here with your bike.

    GPS directions lead to no trespassing posting on gated area right at what was supposed to be summerlake rd. I came here to ride after making a delivery near by, no luck finding it. Is there another way in?

    Rode Tributary for the 2nd time. The problem with these trails is that they are built for running. They hold trail run events here and biking is secondary. Therefore, there are many very tight switchbacks that may be easy for a runner but are considerable harder for a biker. There are places you will have to walk. To make matters worse, the race officials seem to change the race course by changing the trail so if you go back on a different day the trail may not go where you remember it.
    In my opinion, they need to define a biking loop and leave it alone. This loop should be designed by a biker who understands what makes a trail fun to ride. Who knows, I may be that guy. There is a lot of really great terrain here that is not being used.
    All that being said, there is some good riding here but those sections are broken up by some very technical stuff that many people do not like.
