    Thanks

    Head to Blankets Creek. There are a bunch of really good trails there.

    As far as being closed, the Atlanta area trails only close when it's wet. Usually it's just the day it rains and the day after. This has been an abnormally wet Winter and we've had a lot of closed days but nothing extended.

    Have fun!
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    Here's the SORBA site with info on the Blankets Creek and Taylor Randahl Memorial trails, both in the Woodstock area right off I-575.

    Oops - don't have 10 posts yet to give you the link - just do a Google search of any of the terms I mentioned and you'll get the info.

    There are a lot of good trails in the Marietta area, Blankets up in Woodstock is definitely one of the best, but Sope Creek in Marietta is good too, and they're opening up a new couple loops at the end of next month. There's also Allatoona Creek in Acworth and Big Creek in Roswell. There are others too, but these are the best (IMHO) within 30 minutes or so. Like Dolittle said, you can check www.sorba.org for more local info, or the Sorba chapters, SORBA Woodstock, SORBA Atlanta | Work Together, Ride Together, and Latest News and Events - Paulding SORBA for trail status and maps, etc.
