    I feel that these are some of the best trails for hiking and mountain biking within 30-45mins (according to traffic) of downtown Atlanta. You can park at Sope Creek (no bathroom) or Cochran Shoals (bathroom near parking area). Both parks are part of the Chatahoochee River National Recreation Area. You can purchase a $3/day or $35/year parking pass for access to the entire Chatt. River Rec. Area, which must be displayed in your vehicle or you will probably get a ticket. All trails are open to hikers and there are north (within Sope Creek Park, no bathroom) and south (within Cochran Shoals Park) single-track loops that bikers may use, with a two-way connector between them. "No Bike" signs clearly indicate which trails are for hikers only. Please note that the trail that is highlighted on this website is NOT the mtn biking trail and that the south loop has a trail reroute on the southwest side near the creek, so there is now a single entry and exit point for bikers from either park. If I recall correctly, the bike loops are clockwise on Mon-Wed-Fri-Sun and counterclockwise on Tue-Thur-Sat, but all trails are two-way for hikers, who have the right-of-way. Bike trails are well maintained by the park staff (3rd Saturdays) and SORBA. As is often the case with mtn bike trails, we are encouraged not to ride within 24hrs of rain.
