This trail is a tab bit technical, especially when it's raining. The way out is really fun and a good bit downhill, but the way back to the ranger station blows :-) It's a really fun trail, but one of the only ones around.

Summary:
Rode the trail yesterday. Starts off going up a short trail, then you have to go along a dirt road for like half a mile and you get back on singletrack. The trail is sandy in places, but it also flows nicely in certain spots. The roots aren't that bad. There are some jumps and two trails that have jumps but go no where. It was a decent workout, but it's not too technical. I enjoyed it for the most part.

Recommended Route:
I started at the parking spot off of 186.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bartram trail is right across the street but I didn't do it because I was too tired.

Summary:
DIDO on the last review. WRONG directions. Copy/paste the "recommended route" in the address bar and that will put you on the furthest southern end of Pleasant Hill trail system. Starting there seems to be the perfect ride since you have to ride back the same way you came from. You will find some nice FR features all along the way but they are set up so XC riders don't have any problems. Unlike Bartram(the other Tuskegee trail system, LOOK IT UP!), Pleasant Hill is a much faster, somewhat smoother trail. There are multiple fire-roads you will cross, but in-between the second and the third there are some jumps and a nice little/Big technical slalom course, which is just before the third fire-road on the left(NOT complete/don't go pu$$y footin over the features and tear em up!!!!, please). Long story short there are a-lot of cool features on this trail but I will leave the rest for you to find, keep your head on a swivel..

You can always shorten the ride by pulling down one of the fire roads to the trail to the true start, park.

-After you finally pull off to the Right, go another 50 yards and park on the right.

Summary:
TRAIL LOCATION ON THIS REVIEW SITE IS WRONG(see other reviews). Good out and back if you're looking for a quick ride. Some sandy areas. A few spots where you can catch some air.

Recommended Route:
Out and Back from I-85 side.

Summary:
This is a good trail but it is short and not and little sandy in worn areas. Also I would not ride this trail in the winter unless you have some bight colors to wear. I was on the trails this morning and I heard numerous gun shots very close to wear I was it even scared me enough that I did not do the last section. It is a good trail if you don't have a lot of time because it is short. I would recommend this one to any beginners. Best place to park is right off of 85 head east and it is on the right. Its the wire road exit. You do have to ride the fire road at one point for about a mile which is not fun they need to cut a new section through the woods. Oh and this one is mark wrong it is not it Cheawacla State park It is in Tuskegee National forest it just one more exit if you are coming from atlanta or one less from Montgomery.

Recommended Route:
Its just an out and back so yeah.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bartram is another good out and back if you have the time

Summary:
Overall this is a pretty decent trail. It's about 8 miles, with about 7 of those being singletrack. It's not a loop, so you will have to ride the trail in both directions. The trail is very flat but offers a few short hills. Most of the trail is sandy so beware. I've had a couple of good wipeouts. It's very fast in some spots and very techical in others. It's no Oak mtn but definitely the best in the Auburn area. I've ridden it 20+ times over two years and its yet to be boring. Great place to just get out and ride.

Recommended Route:
Park at the trailhead just south of I-85. There is also a map of trail posted there. This is about the midpoint of the trail. This way you are, at most, 4 miles from where you parked. I usually ride in one direction and then back to my car.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Swayback
