Rode trail along with Whipper Snapper and Red Baron. All 3 combined for an energetic and productive workout. My favorite route so far!

Decent workout. Nice climbs and a good mix of tricky spots. Trail is tighter and darker on the last 1 mile - good change of pace

Michael Ouderkirk · Atlanta College of Art This trail has no flow. As soon as you get moving pretty quickley you have to either slow to take a horribley designed turn and the burms do not work if they have them at all. Not a fun trail to ride. Apr 10, 2016
