For a trail so close to the city, it seems far far away from civilization. We frequently see wildlife such as deer. The trail has some rocks and a few easy climbs and is only 1 mile long, which gives you some flexibility as far as length of ride. We will plan to do 3 loops, but we can modify that depending on how we feel. After the ride well head to Moes for lunch.

Dont have a mountain bike? No problem. Cycleworks is only a mile from the trail and offers rentals for $35 per day including a helmet. That is a bit steep, so check bike shops near your home. In any case it is cheaper than buying a bike! Call them at 770-993-2626 for more information. Please note that you must make your own bike rental arrangements - the AOC is NOT handling this!

Required Items to Bring:
Mountain bike (Dont have one? See rental info above)
Helmet (included with rental)
