Rode the Green course with my wife and 11 year old son. Great track for beginners. both my wife and son did well. a few slightly technical sections, but overall easy ride.

Awesome Trails! Not a lot of traffic for a Saturday morning. Definitely could be marked better.

This is one of my favorite mountain bike trails. It is located in the "Fall Line" region of Georgia where the Piedmont Plateau gives way to the Coastal Plain. Very little of it is beyond the intermediate level but it is all great fun. The Indian Springs State Park connecting trail has some fun extended down hill sections often skirting some scenic ravines and with some very nice lake views. I also understand that Dauset Trails has acquired an additional tract of land and that there are plans for expansion of the trial system in the near future.

Vigorous and moderately technical. Can be an easy spin or a gut-busting ride. Good route selections available (easy-moderate-difficult). Great place to "ride as you feel". 2016-03-12 it was dry with only a few muddy places. If you ride, plz make a donation.

The trails are well maintained, but be sure to grab a map if you're doing more than the beginner's loop (about 3.5 miles). There are a few places that aren't well marked, so unless you know the trails well, it will cause you to stop and look at the map.

Overall, these trails are amazing, they just need a little more direction in some places.

I absolutely love these trails. I've spent my whole life hiking here and will always continue to hike here.

Next adventure is to do some biking out there

We had a great time riding the beginner trails. Not for young kids - trails are very narrow and twisting with a fair amount of roots and stones. Pretty area. Will ride to the state park via trail next time.

I like Dauset Trails a lot. Probably because this is where I started Mountain Biking in Georgia. It offers a variety of trails. Deffinetly I would not consider any trail a beginner trail, but more so like moderate to very technical. Some bridges are pretty, the new section is very cool as well. Couple of challenging descents.

This is a fun trail. It is a moderate trail with some challenging areas. Total of the trails is approximately 11 miles. The scenery is nice, trails are well marked and very clear, and you may see some deer along the way.

Great hiking trail if you go early in the morning on a weekday. Lots of ups and downs, and GREAT scenery. If you walk quietly, you will see lots of wildlife. Forest has variety so you don't get bored with the scenery. I loved it!

Had a great time! Well balanced climbs and descents. Park has a lot to offer beyond the trails as well. Check out their website for trail maps.
