Mountain Biking Yellow River

#42 of 404 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#1,165 in the world

This trail is well maintained by Gwinett County Parks and Rec. Mountian bikers and equestrians cross paths in a few places but the trails are seperate. Please respect the privillege we all share in using this trail. The "River" loop starts with an easy winding single track then runs along the river before begining to climb. The trail gets somewhat technical at this point with several short climbs and descents before returning to the easier flat single track sections. The "Creek" loop is much more difficult and technical. You cross Juhan Rd. and begin to climb the first of two difficult, long climbs. This is rewarded by a fantastic descent with several 2'-4' drop-offs in rapid succession. You end up at the creek, follow it for a senic while before heading up again, then down a straight fast single track with three big drops the last of which you should survey before you try. A fast single track with some short climbs,descents and a couple of stream crossings leads you back to the base of the first climb or your return to the easier "river" loop, Juhan Rd or your car.

Night riding at specific times, with approved leaders only.

Getting there
From the east side of I285 (Atlanta Perimeter)take Hwy 78 east, toward Stone Mtn. Exit and go right on West Park Place (keep Target on your right). At the end of W.Park Pl. go right on Annistown Rd. You will pass a BP on the left and then an Ingles on the right. Less than a mile after passing the Ingles you will see Juhan Rd. to the right(among heavy road construction-look closly. If you cross the Yellow River you have gone too far). Go right on Juhan Rd. Yellow River parking is on the left one mile down.
