I've been maintaining and riding the trails and have not seen anyone else riding on these two loops. I curious to know which parking lot you used and which direction you rode the two loops. From the gravel parking lot off Austell-Powder Springs Rd, I take the connector trail across the bridge and then go left or clockwise on that loop to the powerline. Once across the powerline connector trail, I go to the right, counter clockwise, so it's like a figure 8.

I stopped by and checked this out yesterday since it’s close to my house. Not a bad ride although I cleared out the spiders with my face on the first lap :D . There’s a lot of potential in this 1.8m figure eight and I’d love to see it get further developed. It sounds like you’ve adopted this trail Dckwoody, so let me know if I can help. I'm new to the sport so I've never worked on trails yet, but I don’t mind moving some dirt.

Great! You are helping out by riding it and clearing the webs for me. It doesn't get much action so riding will help keep it cleared and let me know if there is a tree down or other work needed on the trails. SORBA has a plan for this area and hopefully they will build more trails. I sent you an email about getting together to ride the area.

Grabbed the CX bike and went exploring around these trails the other day. Found several trails I never knew about near Clarkdale Park. You can put a pretty decent loop together out there. Just across Austell Powder Springs Rd SW, from Clarkdale Park there is a trail that will go parallel too Austell Powder Springs Rd. It seems like it is an old rail road track or something that no longer has any ties. You can average about 18-24mph on this trail and really fly. Then you come to an open field where a couple front loaders sit, but are never used and all the way to the upper right hand corner of the lot, there is another trail head that is hard to see. It will dive into the woods and continue even further back. If you follow that trail you can exit onto Westside Rd. or you can continue on the loop and come back out to the open field. Then if you are looking for just a little extra mileage, head over to Clarkdale Park and over by the entrance near the large building where the gardens are you will see a wooden bridge. Take it and there is a nice little loop out there too. Put this all together and you are on the bike for 45mins to an hour easy.
