This route is great training for the annual All-A-Toona Race in October, as it is basically the race loop.

Thom Cerny

Overview

See each trail for hunting season closure information. DO NOT ride during designated hunting times. Only permitted hunters are allowed in the park.
A great tour of all Allatoona Creek Park has to offer. To ride it in this direction (which is the race direction), you must be riding on a Sunday, Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Most of the ride is intermediate level, but both Voodoo and Hocus Pocus have very technical sections. Mo-Flo is a short, downhill flow trail.

Need to Know

Voodoo and Hocus Pocus have very challenging, technical sections. Hocus Pocus is in the most remote section of the park, so come prepared.

Description

Head out on this fun and challenging loop heading south on the Turtle Back Connector to the Turtle Back trail continuing onto Red Baron. This trail is notably more challenging than Turtle Back, especially if riders choose the advanced lines. It includes several man-made challenges; short, steep, rooted hills; and one 100' rock section.

At the end of Red Baron, hang a left onto the Turtle Back loop. This trail includes several rock features, multiple bridges, berms and dips. Turtle Back Loop has beginner elevations with intermediate features making it a good choice for beginners with improved skills and conditioning. After finishing the loop, head back to the parking area, continuing west onto Mumbo Jumbo Connector and then Mumbo Jumbo.

Mumbo Jumbo is a flowing singletrack featuring numerous rollers and berms. It also serves as a connector to Voodoo and Hocus Pocus. Continue onto Voodoo to the north. Voodoo offers advanced features to challenge the experienced rider. Numerous rock and log crossings, drops, jumps and short, steep climbs keep your pulse high. Trail maintenance is minimized to provide a more backwoods feel. The creek crossing area is particularly challenging in this direction.

From Voodoo, head onto the Hocus Pocus Connector and then Hocus Pocus, looping back on the eastern side heading south on the loops, again following the posted daily direction.

Once back at the parking area, head north onto the Main Parking Lot Connector and then the Driftwood Connector until it comes to the Driftwood - Phase I (Under Construction).

This trail is the first phase of what will eventually be a 3-mile trail, leading riders along Allatoona Creek and to the lake. Though the trail is under construction and not officially open, it is usable. Finish off this loop, taking the Driftwood Connector to the XC Run on the left out to Mason's Connector and then Rusty Bucket.

Rusty Bucket is a 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.

From the end of the loop, head left on the Mason's Connector and then right onto the road section which brings you to the start of Mo-Flo. This directional trail is part of the Bike Park area. Plenty of berms, tabletops, rollers and jumps in a fast 1,500' run. The trail is open to bikes only and is one way - downhill. Do not ride up the trail - use the paved road.

From the end of Mo-Flo, head slightly down the road section, turning right onto Mason's Connector again and continuing onto the Mason's Bridge Loop, riding it in a clockwise direction. Mason's Bridge is a fast flowing singletrack trail with lots of dips and turns. Go left at Mason's Bluff and then back onto Mason's Bridge Loop and then the Mason's Connector, connecting with the Main Parking Lot Connector back to the start point.

History & Background

The first trail at Allatoona Creek Park (Turtle Back) opened in April 2011.

Trails look fantastic. There was a crew cleaning the trails to let water drain. Great maintenance crew workers!
