Summary:
This was my first mtb ride ever so you'll have to take my review for what it's worth. The parking lot was easy to access and had all that one might need to get started. There were several picnic tables, a small covered trail monument with map, 2 port-a-potties (clean), and parking for at least 40 cars/trucks. The trails were well defined and maintained. The bridges were somewhat new, sturdy and in several cases covered with something to provide added traction. However, this is not the case for all of them. The trails were clean. I saw no trash at all, a personal pet peeve. Fortunately, I rode with several Dauset veterans so I didn't get lost. Though I don't recall seeing any markers along the 14 miles we rode. For me it wasn't overly physically challenging but as an mtb newbie it was technically hairy at times. I rated Dauset Trails a 5 overall because I find it hard to believe that there is a set of trails in Georgia that could be more pristine than these.

Summary:
The trails offer quite a bit of interesting stuff. Everything flows pretty well which makes it really nice for a casual ride. There are some fun downhill sections but I wouldn't consider any spectacular. However, with the lack of spectacular downhills comes a very smooth and flowing trail without any massive or long uphills. There are some areas that you can jump but there aren't any specific jumps built into the trail.

The biggest drawback, by far, is the lack of markings on the trail. Even with a map, it can be difficult to follow the correct route. I've ridden the trail 3 times now and I think on the 3rd time, I finally rode the blue route correctly. You don't really get lost but you just end up at a spot you've already been without any idea of where you're supposed to go next.

Recommended Route:
I've only done the blue route....at least I think.

Summary:
After multiple trips to this trail group It's turned into my "home" track. I started riding this trail with a group of more experienced riders and together we have all ridden most all trails multiple times. We have found all skill levels can find something for themselves . Recently we tackled Huff n Puff . The trail is what everyone had told me , great climbs with tight rocky and root infested single track , very little level ground , followed by great 4 or 5 foot drops. One tip here , carry speed into the dropoffs as most are eroded on the back side , after a few of us went head over heels , we figured out it worked better to just make a small jump off of these hills when necessary. Ohh and a few downhill runs through rockgardens . Sandy creek is a good ride as well , keeping my attention on the rocks and pedal position in the tight areas and balance on the rocky climbs. I could ride this trail set for a long time and never get bored...

Recommended Route:
Bootlegger to fern gully then on to sandy creek . Back track a little to pine mtn trail and over to turkey trot.

Summary:
This trail is nice for a group ride. Well maintain, very flat, except for huff n puff. Not at all techinical except for huff and puff. The terrain of this trail remind me of Yellow River. It's one of those trail that "good to ride it once but wouldn't come back". I got a little bore after an hour because i was planning to ride for three. I called it quit after 2hours. There is nothing really special about this trail. Sorry

Recommended Route:
The route is a little confusing without the map that is provided. Some of the trails i must have ridden them 2-3 times. That's when i called it quit.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
1996 atlanta olympic horse park
yargo
chicopee
tribble mill
yellow river

Summary:
The trail system is well maintained and fairly well marked. There are many technical sections involving rocks, roots, and up and down 3-4 foot embankments. No real climbs to speak of but that was what drew there that day (7/18).

Recommended Route:
I attempted to ride the black arrows(advanced route) but eventually lost the way and just began to wing it. The black level trails total 17.5 mi. The intermediate was 11.5 and I don;t recall the length of the beginner trails. I think these trails are well suited for families, beginners, and generallyd anyone who is looking for ride in the woods with tame climbs but that still provides enough of a challenge to keep it interesting.
