CONYERS — Rockdale County will celebrate the opening of the South Rockdale Park Mountain Bike Trails with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and inaugural bike ride at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 22. South Rockdale Park is located at 3909 East Fairview Road in Stockbridge.
MTB Atlanta and Rockdale County Recreation and Maintenance have worked together to build 6 miles of beginner, intermediate, and advanced trails at South Rockdale Park in Rockdale County on the Rockdale River Trail.
“Cyclists will be able to enjoy new multi-use mountain bike trails, the first of their kind in our park system that provide a picturesque view of South Rockdale Park,” said Sue Sanders, director of Rockdale County Recreation and Maintenance. “The opening of the trails is a five-year collaborative effort between Rockdale County, MTB Atlanta and (Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association).”
Funding for the project was made possible with a grant from the Recreational Trails Program of the Department of Natural Resources and SPLOST funds. The new trails will connect to the Rockdale River trail system, a destination PATH project in the Davidson Arabia National Heritage area.
MTB Atlanta is the Metro Atlanta Chapter of Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association. SORBA is the largest nonprofit mountain biking organization in the Southeast.
