Cricket Frog Trail

We did from a highway to east end road and barely needed to stop, not a lot of turns and not a lot of hills, definitely would do the rest when paved

Cricket Frog Trail

Great biking trail!

September, 2023 by photochem99

Ride this trail today (East side) from Mansfield to the bridge. Nicely paved all the way, well shaded and beautiful scenery. Very slight fade in places but nothing steep. Talked with a volunteer who said the closed bridge section will hopefully be open in late 2024.

Cricket Frog Trail

A fabulous multi-purpose trail in the making

January, 2023 by caheyl

We rode all of the open segments of the Cricket Frog today and it's clear this will be one of the most amazing trails when it is fully connected. Covington to the Alcovy River is a very nice ride, and the Alcovy River to Mansfield is rural and quiet with farms and scenic spots all along the way. Someday, I hope this trail connects all the way to Savannah.

Lower end of the trail...

We picked up the trail in Mansfield and headed north, to the Alcovy River. I love this old trestle and can't wait to see it opened!! Perfect trail! It was great to see folks using it during our ride! There were other cyclists, walkers and joggers, all enjoying themselves! Thanks for maintaining this awesome addition to our community!

Cricket Frog Trail

Great Trail with Great Scenery

October, 2022 by marydeaton1957

I rode this trail for the first, but not last time today. It was a great ride, through hardwood forests, with deer and wild turkeys. I rode from Beaver Park in Mansfield which is 8 miles to the end at the river. There is parking at the park and a port-a-potty.

Enjoyed this flat trail!

Finding a tail that is flat in Georgia I have found is difficult. This trail is flat and straight! Beautiful. And downtown Covington is so cute!

Ocmulgee Heritage Trail

Disappointing

April, 2022 by gstarr_tl

The gate connecting the trail from Ocmulgee Mounds to the Heritage Trail was locked and a sign said "connection no longer available". Signage from parking at Central City Park was poor. Along the trail from the park we encountered major highway construction with lots of mud in 2 different places. We crossed through places where homeless people were camped. We never got to any interesting areas of Macon. In the section we did, the streets we went on were in high traffic areas with lots of commercial properties and fast food type restaurants. Based on what I had read about the trail ahead of time, we were very disappointed with what we found.

Ocmulgee Heritage Trail

Nice trail

April, 2022 by mwillis201

Currently under construction. Will be nice trail when construction is complete. Ample parking and nice historic exhibits at main office. Will return in the future.

We walked on the Newbern side of this trail today it was very clean, quiet and peaceful. All while being shaded the whole time.
