Chicopee is an good trail. I went on Copperhead which is one of Chicopee’s trails with two of my friends. I found that the trail had many roots. The trail has small logs to which you can bunny hop over. There were also fun descends and ascends. I had an great time, but would advise this trail definitely for advanced riders or for beginners to be a little bit more cautious. Overall I can’t wait to go back.

They now charge a flat rate $5 parking fee or $50 annual parking pass. Trails are great though, very well marked and kept up. Crowded especially on weekends. Rainy cold days lessen the traffic.

ever felt like you were in the way? bikes everywhere. description should say trails mostly used for mountain bikes not hiking. great walk. not hard at all last long as you can dodge the bicyclists. not much to see, though I found a sewer cave our something. if I had my light with me I would've followed it further for the fun it might've offered. fortunately, I was just testing some gear today, so the focus wasn't distracted by views. the bikers are actually quite nice.

A mountain bike trail no views on tortoise.

I walk/run this one quite often. It's one I'm most familiar with and I enjoy it.

Great trail for the young kids, great for what it is; a nice walk in the woods. Would have given this 5 stars except for the small section that follows the sewer line. Looks like it would be a fast but short mountain bike ride with good flow.

Great trails, well maintained, and lots of miles. It is listed at 12 miles but I think that leaves out some trails like Outer loop, Red Tail, and Coyote; all told 20+ miles of fun. Hard to beat having these as your local trails. There are roots and rocks but overall pretty smooth; for a more rugged run try Elachee - less miles but more natural trail feel.

What a great surprise, once we found it. If you follow Google maps the entrance is on the left right before the "dead end" sign. Based on previous reviews we were expecting a flat service road here. How about a half-mile in, we crossed a bridge take a left and about 50 yards down there was a trail that went up the mountain, we follow that for 2 miles. Up and down mountains,windy, and great trees. There was some traffic and factory noise, I went there for some time with my daughters and to work out. I'll go back to explore the other side of the mountains where the bike trails go up and into.

Terrible trail, boring scenery, you could see buildings in the background the entire time, got lost halfway and didn't know where to go after that, and very muddy spots the entire way. Possibly the worst trail I've ever walked.

Very fun, well maintained 70% flat

Fun, easy trail. It was great for our boys (ages 6, 9 and 11) on their bmx bikes and not too hard on us parents with our hybrid bikes (though chunkier tires would have been prefered)

The trail was really nice but it did take a while to find. The trail itself is also marked as a bike path which can be confusing if you aren't sure where you are. The service road was also very muddy so if you are looking for a shorter walk that makes it more difficult.

Great trail, not a lot of incline so made for an easy run. Lots of super muddy spots in the middle so wear durable shoes.

Great afternoon hike. I have actually ran on this trail as much as I have hiked on it.

Not to bad of a trail. It would be really nice if it was marked better.

I love this trail! so thankful for it to be so close to me. I am a beginner and rode 11 miles recently. it was a little tough but fun. flying squirrel is by far my favorite trail.

Great short trail run guaranteed to see white tail deer and a red tail hawk or two. Not a a lot of uphill so it is fairly fast. Park at the tennis courts near the hwy 53/ Walmart entrance to the campus. You can jump on the trail next south of the track. Parking on the main part of the campus can be a huge challenge during the week. Also it is now University of North Georgia Gainesville Campus and no longer Gainesville College, in case you are confused by the signs.

Great runnable trails that are close to home. Keep in mind They are managed and maintained by and for mountain bikers so I always step of the trail and let them by. I also try to pick any thing dropped by the bikers like gu wrappers, water bottles, etc. I even found a bike multi tool once. This is my thanks for letting me run on their trails. Lots of white tail (hence the name of the longest trail) to run in to and if you put all the trails together you can easily stretch it to 12 miles. Also, only .25 mile to the Elachee Nature Center trail head across the bridge. Both trails back to back can give you a runnable 15-20 miles. Elachee has a few more hill climbs than the chicopee trails so you get some small hill work in. Don't forget your $1 for parking donation.

It was a good group of trails! Not too tough, crosses creeks, some brush and gradient changes. My dog was also pleased with the amount of shallow creek water with a few parts three feet deep to wade in. All in all, a great cluster of trails to navigate with clear markings to which trail leads where. Quarter mile markings to mark distance.
