atlanta
« on: January 05, 2009, 09:47:19 AM »
well i just got home from a trip to atlanta. i only managed two rides while i was there. one was a warm up at Kenesaw mountain which was a short steep two mile climb. the whole ride was a hilly 10 miles of pavement. satuday i took a drive over to stone mountain and rode a trail network called yellow river.this place is flowy and fast while running along a fast moving river. all in all the trail offered very little challenge. this trip reminded me why i love florida weather.

you really did miss a good time in the NI challenge - get yourself a team mate and sign up for his next event

Check out Ft. Yargo next time you're up that way. I'm thinking it is pretty close to Atlanta. It's no double black diamond but it was a lot of fun. I think it was a 12 mile loop that changed directions depending on which day of the week it is.

yeah, i talked to a local who said ft yargo was good. Yellow river had a really bad spider web of trails layout. You end up riding in circles if you don't know the trails really well.

I rode a place up in Roswell/Alpharetta area called Big Creek a couple of years ago and had some fun there.  Nice singletrack that lead to freeride'ish place in the back.

There's another place up in that area (Cummings) called Central Park that has some singletrack and cool looking dirt jump area as well.  The jumps look pretty cool - multiple lines, flowing downhill, etc.

Look up Blanket's Creek next time. It's extremely sanitized, but only 20 miles north of 285 (575 exit 11).
