Summary:
Years ago when this trail opened, I gave it a bum review. The initial trail was a flat twisty and very rooty ride through scrubby pines. Although this segment still exists, it is now the tip of the iceberg, and acts as a nice warm-up to the REAL trails, over the rocks, which are awesome with excellent flow, berms, a nice powerlines sprint, nice elevation changes, a few creeks. The new trails on the other side of the parking lot descend into shady oak forest growth for a different vibe and excellent singletrack also with very nice flow design. Highly recommended for a fun 2 or 3 hours alone or with friends or family. Idiot proof ample signage makes it very hard to get lost. Less technical than Tribble, but more flow and overall trail.

Recommended Route:
Next time I will do the MTB trail east of parting lot as a warm-up, then turn right onto the multi-use trail that descents towards the Alchovy River, then cross the parking lot and bear right on the pine-rooty-flat-twisty part until I emerge by the rocks, cross the creek and just ride around until I run out of time!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Tribble Mill, Yellow River, Ft. Yargo

Summary:
Love these trails. Hidden gem in Gwinnett county if you ask me. Nice flow to the trails with a few climbs but nothing that is considered lung busting. I ride the rim bender every time I go. The rock descent is fun too. The outer loop after the rim bender has nice downhills. The only negative to these trails is that it should be one big loop. If it is crowded with bikers...I could see some bad crashes happening.

Summary:
I took my fairly advanced 8 YO son here and we rode it for the first time together. I can honestly say that I liked the flow of it and found it to be a decent work out. I toasted another tire befor I got to do the one part I had been looking forward to and had to walk out from the top of the "rim bender" but my son did a big part of it and loved it until he had to come back up it. The trails flow really well and there is some good technical riding on the trails to the right of the parking lot (looking out of the lot). Once you cross the creeks there is some good elevation changes and a good mix of Tech riding and flow. We were smoking through the trails and had a blast. The walk out was miserable and I will be back to tame the "rim Bender"....I say that if you have not been here, you need to go. Another thing I really liked better than Yargo is that you are never far from the parking lot if you do not have much time to ride. Thank you SORBA, great trails...

Recommended Route:
It was my first time, I did not really have a planned route. You can make it as aerobic as you want with all of the options in this park.

Yargo is the only other one I have ridden in the area.

I meant to add that it is well marked, but still get a trail map at the info board before you take off.

Summary:
You can say great things about all the other "harder" trails in the area....I always have a smile on my face when done riding here. Just something about the tight turning twisty trail that lets you stay in the big front chainring most of the way....Not a lot of roots, it's smooth smooth smooth.... Great workout and not technical at all. Scenery is kinda the same everywhere you go on it, however.

Recommended Route:
Warm up on the short trail to the left of the parking lot, cross back over the parking lot and take the trail into the woods. Make sure you cross the river and ride the new section up the hill...and back down, then to the parking lot.

Watch out for the slippery rock when crossing the river. You'll slip.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Chicopee woods. Yargo State Park.

"not a lot of roots, it's smooth smooth smooth..."? Are you sure you're reviewing Harbin's Park? MB2 and MB3 are rooty!

Summary:
Well, it's been almost a year since the park opened, and the trail has packed in very well. There are some places that can be fast now. I was out there last week with some friends who hadn't ridden there since near the opening when it was very soft, and they were very surprised at how much better it was. There's a couple places that can catch you out as well. The winter of 2009 wasn't very kind to the place, but with a little hard work it's come out well.

MB4 is the toughest loop right now (see below), and the rest is a good workout.

Recommended Route:
MB1: either direction, use as a warmup/cooldown
MB2: go left to take the long way in, go left again to take the long way to MB3.
MB3: I usually ride it once in each direction. both ways have thier positives and negatives. I think it's slightly more difficult in the clockwise direction, but it's difficult to say.
MB4: I like the difficult loop myself. when you get to the 3 way after the second creek crossing where the map is, stay hard left for the most strenuous climb in the park. when you finally get to the top of the climb (by the DH runs), keep going for one of the best flowy sections of the park. look ahead, as there's a couple places where you can get caught out by saplings, and fallen trees. on this downhill, after the big 90 degree turn, you hit the big jump, skip the hair pin then through the left-right-left-right off camber"figure 8" section to extend the run another 1000 yards.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Yargo (tougher), tribble mill (about the same)
