No. of Reviews: 21

This is probably the most conveniently located mountain bike trail in the Atlanta area. It is mostly singletrack and the majority of it winds its way through th woods. There are some steep hills and technical sections. You will also encounter many roots and rocks jutting from the ground. I ride this trail failry often but almost never see another fellow mountain biker. I am not sure why this is the case.

From I-85 take the Clairmont Rd. exit and head south on Clairmont. After about 2 miles take a left onto Mason Mill Rd. Less than a 1/4 of a mile away the road will turn slightly to the left and you will see a clearing down below on your right. Head down the hill, cross the railroad tracks and you will see the trailhead.

Summary:
Most of the previous path has been paved. You can still find some singletrack intertwined with the walking paths. Some stuff just sends you off into unmaintained paths but I was introduced to a part of a path on the other side of the creek (concrete tire crossing in the creek) and has some fun single track.
Nothing super technical but its a really fun ride if you just need an hour or so in the woods.

To find it (Mason Mill parking lot- by tennis courts):
Cross the new walking bridge and cross over the paved bridge
Take an immediate right into the woods and follow the creekside until you find the creek crossing which you can elect to walk over the tires or ride through and start is on your right and is a loop.

Fun detours to invent new routes.

Hated Yellow River, I come from daily training ride at the Horse Park.

Summary:
They paved it. Most of the good downhill, quick sections are gone now. There are still a few shreds of the more technical stuff lingering around the sides if you look for them. It's really kind of boring with a giant slab of concrete laid right down the middle though.

There is some new stuff across the creek on the Ira B. Melton Park side, it is pretty cool! Very different from Mason Mill but fun, it has 4 log rides 30' 35' 20' and 30' foot long. Pretty flat with berms.

Summary:
this trail is great if you just want to get out for an hour or two and don't have the time to leave the city. For the location, it is the best bang for the buck you are going to find.

Recommended Route:
do the entire loop over and over

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
I decided to give this place a try since I live right on the out skirts of Decatur. I don't believe that I liked it that much because there isn't a good flow to the entire thing. Yes, you can cut and run all throughout the area, but it's not really laid out well for us that get the thrill of fast down hills, steep climbs, and truly technical areas such as the back side of the horse park. You can ride it and make it something if you are willing to spend the effort, but for the little distance it takes to get to GIHP, I would say go there.

Don't mean to sound negative about this trail but I am used to riding the Horse Park and Dauset Trail.
