Runner Notes

These are horse and bike trails. Exercise caution, especially if running on the bike trails. I go on the weekdays and have never seen a horse, and rarely see bikes. No one has ever said anything about me running here. Just use common sense, follow the trail direction, give right-away, don't have music cranked up so that you are unable to hear bikes or horses approaching from behind.

Description

Good for a little fun when a drive to the mountains isn't in the cards. These trails were originally built for Olympic mountain biking. They are used from time to time for special events like the Spartan Sprint, and Ragnar Relay.

Several creeks, and the Yellow River, flow alongside multiple parts of this system. Plenty of wildlife to see. Roots, rocks, and crudely fashioned, plank style bridges along parts of the trails, which gives them an added "cool" factor.

Nothing really too unique, as far as views go. Typical Georgia countryside, it is pretty, but not Majestic like the Grand Canyon or anything.
