Description

Part of the Allatoona Creek Park Mountain Bike Trail System, Rusty Bucket is relatively flat singletrack trail that has lots of tight and twisty sections that weave in and out of a new growth pine thicket. The trail gets its name from the hundreds of old paint buckets that were found when building the trail.

Riding direction changes daily. Check signs at trailhead. Trail may close due to wet conditions. Please check West Georgia IMBA page for trail status.
