There are several trails all over this park. Not really a loop but you can make it a kinda figure 8. You just have to explore this area. Really nice trails with very technical sections and lots of climbing.

Summary:
Clinton Nature Preserve is a great ride in west GA. It is great for me because the park is 10 miles from the house. Clinton offers something for most riders. Most of the trails are good singletrack, with some pretty technical sections. Climbs are not too bad, except for a couple with some rooted sections. As most other reviewers said, there is no "defined" loop, but you can very easily put several trails together to create a loop. You are never too far from the car park, although at times you will feel like you are far removed from everything....I wish the trails were a marked a little better, but by now I have them memorized. The park has restroom facilities and a large play area, and track for the wife and kids. Law enforcement frequently roll through which makes me feel good about things! I love the place.

Summary:
Great place to ride. I've lived 10 mins away my whole life. Theres more single track now than there has ever been. There are many different trails that you can make into 6-8mi loops where you can ride about an hour without doing the same trail twice. This is county park so there will be hikers and sometimes horses but they are not usually a problem. You'll usually see a few other riders there.

Recommended Route:
I HIGHLY recommend using the Strava app or website to see all of the trails. The maps there don't show all of them because some of the trails aren't on the park property but are still fine to ride on.
Strava is the only way I know where you can see a map of all the currently used trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nothing else around West Ga area.
About an hour away are: Coldwater Mtn AL, Blankets Creek, Rope Mill Park, Chicopee, Conyers.

Summary:
Tight & twisty singletrack with some doubletrack and open slickrock connectors. Plenty of climbing if ridden at speed. I was pleasantly surprised at this system. A great work out with some technical stuff. Fast twisty sections as well. If you live in the metro area and haven't ridden here, go check it out for a change of pace. I will be back for sure!

Recommended Route:
There are 3 loops of good trail. 1 loop on the park side of the powerlines and 2 loops on the far side. Once you figure them out, it is easy to make one big loop out of them.

Summary:
These trails are really cool to ride on. I go after classes in college and ride for an hour or two. A map is helpful. Just so people know, the Douglasville Bike Shop that used to carry maps is no longer there, but if you go to the City of Douglasville's web page, you can email the parks and rec department and they will send you a map for free! Just got mine the other day, but even if you dont have one, you can explore and have fun with it!

Summary:
This place is awesome, I was there for about 2 hours yesterday evening. The best singletrack was a little hard to find, but worth looking for. It is strait across the power lines from the rock garden. This place is well worth the drive from Kennesaw, but with Blankets creek so close we’ll see how soon I make it back. Great place to ride in west GA thou. Have fun and don’t get lost…
