Big Creek park is a city of Roswell park that consists of two trails. For a park so close to the city it is remarkably secluded. The forest cover and creek make you feel as though you are hours away and last time there we saw a family of 6 deer.

We will be taking the beginner trail which is very short (~1 mi.). It has a couple of easy climbs and is only mildly technical. I will keep the pace slow for the beginners, who should have no problem with 3 loops. More advanced riders are welcome and I think you will enjoy taking this trail at higher speed. After the ride well head to Moes for lunch.
