Description Located in the northwest portion of Cobb County, this park consists of 1,450 acres leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Large open fields give way to forest as the property connects to Lake Allatoona. Two creeks, Little Allatoona & Big Allatoona, merge as you near the lake. The Turtle Back Connector is a doubletrack bi-directional flat trail that starts out of the main parking lot and crosses Old Stilesboro Rd. The trail features two large bridges that cross Little Allatoona Creek and a section of wetland that houses nesting Herons. The Turtle Back Loop is a fast flowing singletrack trail with fun features and a few tight turns thrown in to keep you on your toes. The trail attributes include: several rock features, multiple bridges, berms and dips. The degree of difficulty is beginner/intermediate. The Turtle Back Loop has beginner elevations with intermediate features making it a good choice for beginners with improved skills and conditioning. The Turtle Back Spur is 1.3 mile loop that extends off the Turtle Back Loop. The spur has more elevation than the loop with faster flowing sections and heart pumping climbs. The Rusty Bucket is relatively flat singletrack trail that has lots of tight and twisty sections that weave in and out of a new growth pine thicket. The trail gets its name from the hundreds of old paint buckets that were found when building the trail. The Mason's Bridge Connector joins the Rusty Bucket and Mason's Bridge Loop. This trail is a double track sewer easement that parallels Allatoona Creek and travels under the Bridge on County Line Rd. The recently cut first phase of the Mason's Bridge Loop is another fast flowing singletrack trail. The first phase is complete and currently tame but with future phases planned, will evolve into more of a feature filled intermediate level roller coaster type of trail. This trail will eventually be 4 miles once phase 2 and 3 are complete. Plans have been drawn for a total of 20 miles of mixed use trail in the park with the first phase complete and op
