Review: I'll give this trail a 4 based on the overall trail system at Allatoona creek. The trail is a good distance and well marked. It has a few nice flow sections but from about mile 1.5 to 3 seemed like a lot of short uphill climbs without much reward. There is nothing overly technical and it's a good solid single track. I would rate Mumbo Jumbo higher because it has a lot of cool turns they built out of the landscape that are a lot of fun.

Review: Pretty nice flowing trail with some obstacles but not too difficult. 4 Miles is a pretty long loop though.

Review: Though an approx 4 mile ride it is relatively flat and windy (curvy). No real challenges. But, it is a fun trail to bike on nevertheless.

Review: This trail has plenty of variety and good flow. It's one of my favorite trails to ride. Red Baron and Whipper Snapper are accessed from this trail.

Review: Meh. Not sure why there are so many great reviews of Turtle Back Loop. I found it to be tediously rooty, with very little flow. I bike Blankets and Sope Creek regularly, so I am no stranger to roots. This trail was way easier technically, but the smaller roots seemed never ending. Rusty Bucket was a good beginner section. Mason's Loop was fun. Nothing hard or steep. Think it was rated more difficult, but seemed about the same skill wise aside from 1 or 2 sections you could easily walk , however a much more pleasant ride. Had planned to run Voo-doo but it was closed. Decent ride if you are local but we will probably stick with Blankets, Sope, and Taylor Randall rather than Alatoona.

Review: Nice beginner /intermediate trail. Not too technical to take first timers on (skipping the Red Baron loop). Tough enough for the advanced rider to get a good workout or warm up on and add the Red Baron for more challenges.

Review: I like this trail a lot. It's good solid miles with varied terrain and decent flow. There's not a lot of elevation changes, but there are some sections that require a bit of skill to get through. Roots, rocks, the standard stuff for north GA trails.

Review: Great trail. My favorite of all trails at Allatoona Creek due to its variety: really fun flow in areas, no crazy climbs, has some very tight n tricky areas, and most importantly is the gateway to the super fun Red Baron and Whipper Snapper trails!

Review: After riding all the trails in the park I can say this is my favorite. Not too tough & not to technical. Although the optional obstacles out there are.
