McIntosh Reserve

Average Rating:    (2.78 of 5)

There are several interconnecting trails here, and truly in a perfect world the best way to cover them is to bump into a local rider (thanks David). The hand drawn map they have at the RS isn't any help. One starts to the left of the restrooms there by the RS. Go up the hill, go right then left and then your on your own. If you stay basically straight you can get a 6-7 mile ride that brings you to the south side of the big meadow. The total trails length is listed as 15 miles. There is a level path down along the Chattahoochee that is a nice cool down, following the river for the length of the meadow. These trails are fast and fun, great intermediate, short ups and downs, but a beginner could probably dab through them. Sandy in spots, a bit muddy in others, but hey that's mountain biking!

Summary:
The last time I was at McIntosh Reserve was 3 or 4 years ago and the trails were really torn up by the horses and for that reason I stopped going. I was back there last week for the first time since then and I was pleasantly surprised at how the trails have recovered. The people at McIntosh Reserve have done some significant work and also some re-routing of the trails. While McIntosh doesn't compare to trails up north as far as technicality, it will still give the beginner to intermediate rider a decent workout (besides, there is not much to choose from if you don't want to drive far to ride off road in Newnan and Peachtree City). Yes, it still costs $2.00 to ride if you live outside of Carroll County.

Summary:
Nice, lazy, scenic trails for beginners that follows the hooch a bit (good place to take newbies). If you are looking for something challenging GO NORTH, there is nothing difficult about this trail except dodging the road apples.

Recommended Route:
Chances are if you are serious enough to be on this website reading about trails, that this trail isn't serious enough for you.

Summary:
Perfect for mountain biking, approx. 15 miles. Good places to start are at Council Bluff & behind the Park Station. It has plenty of hills & flat areas, some are sandy & some a tad rocky. Part of the trail you get a good view of the river & open land. Pefect for groups or single rides.

Recommended Route:
Trail starting at Council Bluff at the top of the hill, round trip 15 miles.
