Overview

Big Creek MTB Park is a trail system made up of multiple loops containing beginner, intermediate and advanced trails. It has over 5 miles of cross-country singletrack, two pump tracks and an incredible freeride area. Paved parking lots provide multiple points of access to the trails and the Big Creek Greenway.

Need to Know

Always check the RAMBO web site for the latest trail information.

Description

From the main parking lot, the ride begins on Stumpy's Loop Trail, a fast and smooth green level trail with multiple elevation changes. The trail transitions to Laughing Creek trail, a short connector loop that takes you to Climbing Snake trail.

Climbing Snake kicks up the challenge level with more roots, rocks and fast flow trails. From the snake, you'll transition to Hurts So Good, which introduces sharper up and downhill sections and increases the skill level. Finally, Pine Hill hits you with a steep climb and then you hit the rest of the loops in reverse order back to the parking lot.

History & Background

Big Creek MTB Park is the largest wooded park in the city of Roswell, GA. It is a great place for riding, hiking, trail running and just enjoying nature right in the city.

Each individual trail is good quality single-track. However, there are too many intersections. Spent a lot of time getting my phone out to read the map on mtbproject. The intersections were signed, but there are soooo many of them with multiple options at each it was very frustrating. Again, great trail, just less than ideal layout. Nov 26, 2017
ATTENTION: URGENT ACTION NEEDED. This city of Roswell is planning to enter into an agreement with a private foundation to destroy Big Creek park and build a massive completely unnecessary tennis complex with over 100 courts. They dropped this news Thursday August 9, 2018 four days prior to the Monday city council meeting on this issue. Anyone concerned with this BAD idea needs to email the Mayors office, or any city council members in Roswell to oppose. In addition, please show up at City Hall Monday at 5:00 PM to oppose in person. Additional information available at the Face book pages of Fresh Bike Service (Roswell), Friends of Roswell Parks, RAMBO (Roswell Alpharetta Mountain Bike Org) and the original article on AJC.com Aug 10, 2018
