Here is a review of this trail from mtbr.com
Wow what a great set of trails! It was worth the drive to experience this trail system. Last weekend I got a small taste, and I am glad I took the chance to come back again this weekend to ride the rest. Definately coming back again soon. Most of the trails are not too difficult, very smooth and have great rhythm. Huff n Puff is most likely the toughest. Moonshine is a lot of fun, Pine Mtn. offers a cool downhill run and some neat jumps. The trails are set on old farmland, creating a diverse landscape and terraced terrain, with lots of scattered rocks, roots, hills, a of couple fields, and large creeks. They are well maintained and are really well marked. The maps that are available in the parking lot are a definate plus. Thanks too all of the people who take care of this system and to those who have made this ride possible. What a ride!
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||Jackson, Georgia 1pm/Dauset Parking Lot http://www.dausettrails.com/map.htm Follow the directions on http://www.dausettrails.com/map.htm - BE AWARE that the turnoff for the parking area at the trail head is about 1/2 mile BEFORE the main entrance to the park. Look for a gravel road after a short hill with a bike sign.|

Only You Can Prevent Erosion! Mountain bike trails are fragile things. Too many trails are needlessly being trashed from erosion. You can do something about it, start with yourself. Riding in the rain, don`t do it! Whether it is raining or just rained, don`t ride the trail. Realize that the trail is very fragile after a rain and riding the trail and especially skidding, spinning, or sliding on the trail greatly accelerates erosion. When you do this you`re not only killing the trail, but also making a bad name for mountain bikers. There are plenty of great wet day rides that won`t damage the trail, mainly because they are not singletrack they are fire roads, jeep roads, forest service roads, call them what you like.
