Description

Sope Creek is one of the more underrated trails in Atlanta Metro. It's popular with walkers and runners as well as mountain bikers.

Sope Creek is a mix of wide trail and classic forest singletrack. The ride is commonly done as a figure eight with direction depending on the day of the week.

The singletrack is nice and flowy through beautiful hardwood forests. The trail doesn't have much for elevation change but does feature a couple of fun descents.

Overall, Sope Creek is a good place to get in a quick ride if you are crunched for time.

Thought everyone in Atlanta was going to be on this trail, but I was alone once I got out there. One of my favorites.
