Where to ride near atlanta
I'm going to Atlanta this weekend for the SEC championship, and will have a little free time. I wanted to know if there is any good trails systems in the area.

Try this link MTB Trails In Georgia.
Not sure about the status of all the trails. It's been a while for me.
According to MTBR, the Yellow River trail has been "destroyed."

To the OP, you'd better double check on the others before you make the trip. On the other hand, you could do the Peachtree Street urban_assault trail.
1. Ride Peachtree Street north from downtown
2.Turn east on Ponce de Leon
3. Stop at the Kripsy Kreme Doughnut shop and get a dozen warm glazed doughnuts.
4. Keep going down Ponce and see Blondie at the Clermont Lounge.
5. Go further on Ponce and have a cold one at the Righteous Room.
6. Ask one of the cyclists there how to get to Little Five Points.
7. Get to L5P and hang out with all my old friends.
Jeez I miss Atlanta.
Yellow River is there, it's just been turned into tripletracks. I would check out Blankets Creek in Woodstock or Chicopee Woods in Gainesville.
Deep In The Battlefield..
Yellow river is still there i ride it every weekend...Sure there are signs that say closed on creek side bu F*** that i ride right past them, theres no one back in there to tell you to leave so just ride them anyway...Singletrack is still iin there you jsut have to look for it because most of it is trails peopel have built themselves....but anyway, go out there you wont be dissapointed, im headed out there around 10:00am today.
conyers horsepark, is quite a solid loop and not as far as blankets creek. It's off I-20, exit 82 or something. Then a few miles down that road, I'm sure mtbr has some better directions.
Blankets Creek, Woodstock. Go to MTB trail reviews for description and directions. The forcasted wx is for rain Sat. and Sun. and it will be closed if it's raining.
Call 770 718 9748 for info on Blankets
