Lot's of single track, with some open areas (power lines) Some nice creek crossings, lots of up and down. Pretty fast track with combo rocky, mud and dirt. In fact there is a race there March 7, 1999, 5K in prize money. Visit www.georgiagames.org

Trail Directions
From top end of I-285 in Atlanta, take hwy 141/Peachtree Industrial Blvd. North. At fork of 141 and P.T. Ind. take 141 to the left. 141 turns into Medlock Bridge Rd. Keep going north just past Abbots Bridge Rd. Look for John's Creek Parkway on right. Turn in right, park at recreation area on left. Track is along the right as you were coming in on John's Creek and has several ways to get to it off the road. One is from parking go back a street or two and turn left into John's Creek Ind. Pkwy, Marble sign. (I think) At the the end there is a road block, you are in the middle of the track. Look for the tire tracks leading off into the woods. Good luck, it's well worth the trip.

Summary:
This trail maybe closed, but it one of the best rides you'll find in North Fulton. Lots of singletrack with many twist and turns, creek crossings, dirt, roots, rocks, mud, and wildlife. There are various loops and many ways to ride it. Even though the trail is about 5 miles long, you can spend up to 3 hours riding and exploring various routes. This is a great place for expert riders to let loose and rip it up!

Recommended Route:
From Medlock Br. Rd. heading East make a right into Johns Creek Park (also known as Technology Park). Go down aboout 1/4 of a mile and make a right onto Technology Circle. Take that down until you see a small pond on your right, on your left a little after the pond is the trail entrance. There is one opposite that entrance as well. For the best ride enter opposite the pond.

Summary:
Starts down hill pretty fast then a big up hill. Afew creek crossings. After the big hill its down hill till you cross a road.(BE CAREFUL) I have almost been hit fling fast acrossed it. You do not have to cross, there are many different ways to go on that side. Once you cross there are two ways to go I recomend the right way, there is less up hill and more long straights to get speed for a big hill climb by some power lines. Then you go down a very long straight into a weving down hill. Proble the most fun part of the cousre.

Recommended Route:
Right from the office parking lot.

Summary:
Trail is CLOSED! We were yelled at by a cop! If you can outrun the law in the woods go for it. But he threatened to take us to jail if we rode again. So now, you have been warned. Great trail too - unfortunate that pigs block the trail now.
