The Rock Hawk

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Eleven miles of original double track, mostly fast rolling hills with great views of Lake Oconee. Really good for a beginner or for the more experienced you can pin it. There is also another Five miles of tight, twisty single track. Several rock gardens with lots of baby heads. All in all, a great place to ride. Something for everyone. The park is owned by Georgia Power so there is usually plenty of really nice camp sites.

I thought I'd give this trail some love. The guys out there at the Rock Hawk have done a fantastic job keeping this trail nice and challenging for both beginners and the experts. The double track (which to my liking is starting to grow over and become single track) is the easiest of the trails, still have some climbs, still loose in some corners but overall a nice long beginner ride. The maps provided at the parking lots are detailed with the easier routes. This would be everything except the T trails, Granite Shack, Talon, and one other I forget the name of. Those are the more advanced, tight singletrack that really makes this place shine. All in all, I think if I ride everything in a big loop it turns out to be 15 or so miles. Keep up the good work out there, it gives me a place to ride when I go to Lake Oconee.

Recommended Route:
Effigy parking lot, down effigy trail, follow until you hit T trails, then back on main trail (colored names), after a while duck back into side trail on your left (cant remember the name but its marked), that will take you down by the lake and behind the campground, cross road and do some more singletrack, come back up and hit the main trails again, ride the Talon clockwise, back to main trails, go left and left after you cross the road if you want to be done, left and right will take you around to do the main trails you miss by doing talon, follow those and hit the Plant trails around until you cross road and follow those until you see effigy trail on right, back to parking lot. Awesome ride!
