I was wondering if it would be possible to compile a catalog of trails in the Atlanta area…or within an hour or two drive of downtown….which feature at least one tabletop jump that can be easily “sessioned” for practicing.
I know the Big Creek freeride area features a great section for this, with a beginner line and an intermediate section. I think there’s a few tabletops scattered on Powerhouse/Raceway/Turbine at Rope Mill, maybe a little tougher to session. Wondering about any other recommended trails. Allatoona? FATS? (I’ve never ridden those.) Others?
For sessioning and progression, I don’t think anything nearby is better than Big Creek. Allatoona is probably next best. There are some short downhill flow lines of varying difficulty. I haven’t been in a while, but I recall being airborne some. Blankets Creek has the Holler which is good as well, but they come at you pretty fast if you are a beginner. At Blanket’s creek, you can ride the Dwelling flow lines over and over. The one that veers off to the left at the fork (can’t recall the name) has a few tabletops, though I find it a little harder to actually jump those compared to Big Creek. You do have a good drop at the end of that flow trail that is also solid as far as building confidence in the air.
