Big Creek Freeride Area

The Freeride Area at Big Creek Park is designed with gravity riders in mind, and offers a number of progressive features designed to build confidence and expertise in more advanced trail skills.


Freeride Trails:

  • Gully - The original Big Creek Freeride trail includes steep downhill sections, jumps and an optional road gap line
  • Lunch Line - Longest DH trail, includes roots, a rock garden, jumps and berms
  • Honor Roll - Features a trail gap, triple berm jumps and connects to the lower portion of Gully
  • Slalom - Our version of a flow trail features huge berms and a 20ft tabletop courtesy of the Eagle Scouts
  • Sender Row - Great place to finish upper Lunch Line, includes a technical rock garden and dirt sender drop
  • El Scorcho - Originally an uphill XC trail, now DH-only. Includes flat berms and a few technical features.
  • Typhoon - The most technically difficult trail, includes a 7ft drop off Warren's Rock down to rocky and rooty sections 
  • Beginner Dirt Jumps - Perfect place to learn the basics on a step-up and three tabletop jumps
  • Expert Dirt Jumps - Includes an intermediate line with 15-20ft tabletops and an expert-only line with four large gap jumps

NOTE: All trails in the Freeride area are 'EXPERT level', with various lines having optional 'Expert Only' features and drops.

CAUTION:
We strongly encourage riders to:

  • Wear a full face helmet, knee and elbow pads. 
  • Lower your seatpost
  • Walk the trail BEFORE riding it to familiarize yourself with the terrain and features
  • Go ONLY in the direction posted on signs. Do NOT walk or ride up a downhill-only trail.
  • Do not modify or build without permission

Big Creek Freeride continues to evolve giving riders new jumps, features, and alternate lines. Stay in touch with the Freeride Group on Facebook.

Open: Dawn to Dusk

Directions to the Freeride Area:
Option #1 (shortest/easiest): Park at Northwood Elementary (10200 Wooten Rd, Roswell, GA 30076) instead, and ride past the playground and soccer field, then past the metal gate. 

Option #2 (the epic ride): Park in the main or lower parking lot. Take Stumpy's Loop to Laughing Creek and follow the Advanced trail signs. Note this is a long ride, and not ideal for DH bikes due to the amount of climbing.

Option #3 (quick access without moving your car): Park in lower lot by the bathrooms, then ride the paved greenway approx 1 mile. Look for the entrance to the Freeride area on your right (next to doggie poop station).

Big Creek is a City of Roswell park with trails maintained by RAMBO.
