Arrowhead Park

Average Rating:    (3.55 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 11

Technical & tight. The trails wind around the hills of Lake Tobosofkee. Continuously going up and down, this trail is sure to exercise the lungs, especially if multiple laps are run. Whoop-de-doos and slalom-like twists and turns will give your arms a full workout. There is a total of 640 feet of climbing. Entry is free into the Arrowhead Park for mountain bikers. Signs are currently up on the trail, but they are made of paper and will likely degrade. My best advice is to stay on the worn part of the trail, since there are forks and alternative routes. Construction of the trail is excellent, and allows for great "flow".

Trail Directions
West of Interstate 475. Take the Hwy 80 exit and head west for 3 miles. Take a right on Tidwell Road until it dead ends. Take a left on Columbus Road and take a right shortly thereafter into Arrowhead Park. Go through the gate, and when the road splits, fork left. Take your next left and park in front of the bathrooms. There are no signs showing the trail routes, but a spraypainted red parking block in the lot shows where the trail starts.

Summary:
We chose it because of the proximity to the interstate and were very happy with our choice. The first part was an extremely hard climb but eased up after that. We took the beginners course and found it very satisfying. Go for it!!

Summary:
Trail (blue arrow route) starts out with a few climbs but after the first mile the trail starts to flow better. Climbs are mostly short. Not a rocky trail but mostly nice single track. Not many flat spots, the trail mostly flows up and down and twistly through the woods. Blue trail is about 7 miles and the green trail is about 5 miles. Trails are very well marked. Overall trails seem to be very well maintained. I could see the trail would take some time to dry out if we had a recent rain. I rate this trail alittle better to as good as the pig trail due to trails are better marked at arrowhead. Trail could use a few sections of no climbs or decents. I still give it a 5 due to how well it was maintained and marked at the time I rode it.

Summary:
Trail is a lot better than it used to be since the SORBA guys came in and revamped the trail. They've done a lot of work and really cleaned up and extended the trail system that was there. In the last couple months, the trails have become well labelled. However, the trail does not flow at all. You're either going uphill or you're going downhill. There isn't much in the way of flat sections. Lots of nice downhill sections are unfortunately ruined by off camber turns and sharp corners. Most uphill sections have a sharp corner right before them too so you can't get any momentum. On the flip side though, if you want to learn to ride smoother, this is the trail for you. In order to prevent blowing your heart up, you need to carry as much speed as possible around the turns.

The technical sections on this trail primarily involve a series of dips and steep climbs. Not too much in the way of roots, rock gardens, or tight and fast sections. The trail does not drain water very well so if there has been a big rain, the trail will be a mess. No jumps at all in this trail. Occasionally you can find something to jump but again, it is ruined by a sharp corner immediately afterward.

There are some really nice views from this trail and you get to bike along side the lake in a few places.

Recommended Route:
Blue is longer and the main trail. Green cuts out some of the more difficult climbs and is a little flatter but a lot shorter.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Pig Trail, Thomson, Dauset

Summary:
The trail is now open. We have just over 7 miles to ride right now, but will be adding more.

The trail is more flowy now with constant elevation changes that will give your heart and lungs a workout.


Recommended Route:
Clockwise, following the blue arrows. Start at the entry to the left of the bathrooms.


Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dauset, Pig Trail, Thomson.

Summary:
The trail was largely destroyed by a tornado in May of 2008. The local club (OMBA) has raised funds to build an entirely new trail system at the park and we have started work on the first loop. The trail is still closed for riding but part of the first loop should be open in late 2010.

Recommended Route:
There isn't any ride-able trail yet but signs are there to direct you to the trailhead. Enter the park and follow signs for Bike Course.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dauset, L.H. Thomson, GA Industrial Children's Home (Pig Trail)
