Sweet single track! There are plenty of roots, but it is very runnable No gravel roads, but one 1/2 mile dirt road climb. Some hills, but plenty of time to recover. This trail is well maintained by the local mtb. group and is also a great place to ride.
Restrooms on site.

Review: Mountain Biked and ran here while racing at Ft. Yargo. Well cleared trees, nice single tracks with some ups and downs, flowing powerline trails, and a nice lake to soak in after running.

Review: I've never run here but I have mountain biked the trails and they're great. Good trailhead facilities and rolling terrain - nothing too steep or gnarly. Head into town afterward for a burrito at Barberitos.

Review: This is a great trail that I tend to run a few times each month. It is relatively flat with lots of small/short elevation changes. If you are looking for a big hill workout, I'd find another trail. The trail is widing with lots of switchbacks. Watch out for exposed tree roots that blanket some sections of the trail. I tend to see more mountain bikers than runners, so keep your eyes peeled. I believe runners and hikers are suppose to yield to the bikers. I hope you enjoy the run. It's a little out of the way, especially if you live near downtown Atlanta, but it's worth the drive. Wednesday's are free, so you can save yourself $3. Make this trail your next weekend long run.

Review: Ran the Thrill in the Hills 1/2 Marathon there, the course is awesome single track, many many switchbacks and elevation changes throughout, good footing, trail well cleared and marked every 1/2 mile.
