  3. Olde Rope Mill Park has some great mountain biking trails that are tucked away in a wooded area on the outskirts of Metro Atlanta. Little River runs through the park, and although most trails do not run right alongside it, you can view it from several points on the trails, and it provides a very relaxing spot after your ride. It also has a paved area, which is great for a cool down, beginners, and for families.
