Mountain Bike Trails

The Georgia International Horse Park has the first-ever Olympic mountain biking course in the world. With 1,032 feet of elevation change, this unique course will give Park visitors over 9 miles of a truly exhilarating ride. The widely varied terrain also offers paralleling smooth surfaces for television equipment. The trails are open for public riding daily. Bring your bike and enjoy your ride!

Trail entrances are identified at a shelter featuring a large map of the trails as well as individual maps for you to take on your ride.

There is no fee to ride the trails for passive recreation. Fees will apply to participate in mountain bike events and races.
