Mountain Biking Turner Lake Complex

***   Add a review
#191 of 397 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#5,383 in the world

Free parking . 1 or 2 moderate climbs. Some pretty fun downhills. A couple of non-bike friendly bridges. Trail starts on a paved walking path which starts beside the lake. Ride past the athletic fields and you will see where the "nature trail" starts. According to the newtonrecreation.com website bicycles are only NOT allowed within the softball and football complex. A few walkers will eyeball you on the trails, but there are no posted rules against riding. I have seen riders of all ages on the trails. Trail will vary between 2-3 miles depending on which route(s) you take. Good beginner trail with just enough hills to get a newbs adrenaline going.

    This complex has about 2.5 miles of great beginner nature trails and about a 3-4 mile loop of great new singletrack. There is plenty more currently in the works. Its hard to find the trailhead, it usually takes a secret handshake from a few of the locals but once your in, enjoy the ride.

    This is one of those trails that is really for foot travel. Back when I first started mountain biking I used to come here, so if you are barely starting out it's good. This should be done by people on walmart bikes. But, trust me it's worth driving to the Conyers horse park nearby instead where you can actually rail it if you want to have some serious fun.

    Wide and flat trails through the woods. This place is probably just OK for beginners. Everyone else should probably skip this one.

    Nice beginner level trails to learn on or take the kids out for a short ride. Depending on how you decide to loop them, you could probably put together a 3-4 mile ride. Everything is either wide singletrack or doubletrack and very smooth. No real climbs but still enough undulation to have some fun.
