Summary:
I've lived next to this trail for the past six months, so its been super nice to have it right next to me. I've only seen another rider on it once before, and I ride it about once a week, but somebody clearly maintains it because since Christmas there have been numerous small improvements and route changes (mostly good).

The trail is not that technical, although there are a couple good spots, but I like that because it means you can really focus on speed and endurance. Riding the trail is a much more adrenaline filled way to get in a good cardio workout than the typical army solution of going on a 5 mile run.

I wish there were more hills, but its Georgia so you have to work with what you have. There is a pretty tight beginners jump in the southeast corner of the route, a wooden ramp about 18 inches high.

Overall I think its a great local trail to have, nothing too crazy- good for beginners. If you are a really hardcore rider who loves lots of steep descents, rock gardens, etc, this probably isn't going to be challenging enough for you, but its still worth it to check it out if you are in the area and want to try something new.

Recommended Route:
I always start on 1st Cav Division Road just north of the road to the elementary school (Stowers road). There is a sign on the west side that says "fitness trail" and that leads you to the mtb trail, which I always take the first right about 30 or so meters down.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Flat Rock park and Chewacla State Park.

Summary:
Don't expect a whole lot. there was a bit of up hill, a tiny dip followed by more up hill. Then there was a longer down grade that ended in the smallest attempt at a box jump I've ever seen. and then it loops around a little. Probably be okay if you're looking for something to get your heart rate up but if you're looking for adrenaline, don't waste your time.

Summary:
Decent trail that gives a bit of a challenge. Not too bad just wish it were longer. It's about 6 miles if you start at the top of the fitness trail and finish there as well. I try to ride this at least once a week and I have noticed that someone has put some bridges up in a few places that would require super swampers to navigate the mudholes below. Much appreciated by the way. Would like to see some more trail outside the southe gate on he Alabama side of the river. It just looks like that area has a lot of potential for some good trails.

Summary:
Im glad to see the Trail is getting some love now. I began building this trail about ten years ago and it was more like a wagon wheel system. We went in and reworked it to make it a full loop. The single track portion is now at 6.1 miles and with the Fitness Trail eight miles total. I have ridden West point and Flat rock Park. This trail is not as maintained but will test your cardio and in some places give you the white knuckle treatment. We are working to get it back to race worthy. I have several SORBA trained Builders on the Team now. We plan to add 3 more miules to the course and put some dry trails down in the low ground in the future to make it a total of 12 miles. Again work in progress. If your in the area, look me up on facebook David Morgan

Recommended Route:
Park by the fitness Trail and drop down the Trail and take the right at the bottom o the hill. you will see Red Signs on the Trees with Reflectors. This is how we are marking it now. We will put up another 30 signs this week.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Flat Rock, West Point Lake, Trail of Tears.
