Summary:
Clayton County International Park Trail System

Regarding the forest area on the West side of the small lake (I call it "Little Indian Lake") that is above Indian Lake on the map -- that is, the area that is between "Little Indian Lake" and the tennis courts - The trails have been cleared, raked and are in good shape. Temporary trail signs have been added at the four trailheads and all trail segments have been given names. Trail signs have also been posted at each junction where two or more trail segments meet. Unfortunately there is no trail map yet although that may be forthcoming by summer. These trails are used by both bikers and hikers although they were originally designed and built by bikers. (Hikers note – there are no switchbacks or log benches along the trail and some trail segments are very steep).

Recommended Route:
The trail segments in the West forest area consists of a patchwork of trails, mostly strenuous and there is no recommended route. The temporary trail signs designate the trails as Upper Trail, Middle Trail and Lower Trail. They all connect with each other at various junctions.

There is a good wooden bridge at the North end of "Little Indian lake" that connects the West and East side forest area trail systems. Some of the East side area trail segments have been cleared and temporary trail sign put up.

Summary:
This trail is an abandoned trail... period. I went and rode it today and saw great potential and abandonment! Forget it... nobody likes fallen trees, large broken branches, thousands of pinecones and overgrowth. Markings are poor, the trailhead info board has spray painted graffiti and spider webs....nothing else. Clayton County International Park has turned its back on the mountain bike community. The basketball courts are fabulous...Thanks Clayton County for wasted potential! Their website yields practically no info on these trails, the message is clear.

Recommended Route:
Dauset Trails (please donate to trail use box at trail head)

Summary:
The Southern Crescent chapter of SORBA has put in some hard work to bring these trail back to life. The trails are back in good shape and are now better marked than ever. There are over 6 miles of single track with a few short but steep climbs. Some people are even calling it "little dauset."

Recommended Route:
Follow the red arrows.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dauset trails in Jackson and the Horse Park in Conyers.

Summary:
Rode this trail system for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Trails are not real well maintained and it was often very hard to determine which way to go next. Had only a few miles that I could find. Probably not something I will do again.

Recommended Route:
No Idea. Just start riding. There is a map at the trail kiosk but it does not help a lot.

Summary:
I understand eveyone's frustration with the back section of trails and the new tennis courts. The county has essentially killed the back section of trails. The red section on the east side of the main road is nice, but short. It's even got a couple of challing sections to the north of the pond next to the starting point. Trail markings are intermittent. I can tell that at one point some folks were doing some excellent work maintaining the trails, but it appears to have been awhile. It's got potential, but the posted map needs to be reworked and some of the trails redirected to make a good loop. All in all a decent ride that if you live in the Atlanta metro, I'd reserve for quick lunch/evening ride just to get your heart up or test out some new gear.

Recommended Route:
Red section east of the main road.
