Jackrabbit is a very beginner-friendly trail network and features gentle ups and downs, and is very twisty and very fast! There are very few obstacles, and essentially no technical riding, and very little climbing. However, the flow of this place totally makes up for it!

I am a huge downhill, loose rock, obstacle guy, but this trail is a total blast! This is one of the most fun machine-built trails I have ever ridden!!

The trail system is set up with a central loop that all of the other trails branch off of. Consequently, it's very easy to navigate: just follow the main loop, grab one of the trails off of it, return to the loop, and keep going! If you keep turning in one direction, you should be able to ride pretty much the entire trail system.

It also looks like the campgrounds there are really, really good and really close. I drove by but did not go into them.

Review: Needed to find a non technical trail for a friend and roadie who is at the beginning of her MTB life.

Holy Moly I think she is hooked....this trail is fantastic!!!!...and we even had to ride it with fall leaves all over it. This was my friends 2nd trail ever and she really enjoyed it. Made me really appreciate the trail as an intermediate rider where someone used the land this way and really thought things out. Maybe the best in flow I have ever ridden. A must visit for anyone in the vicinity. Ride it fast and you won't want to stop! Very well marked and thought out.

I will always come back to this trail when anywhere within 100 miles of this place.

Review: Just spent the weekend camping and riding with my younger daughter (10) at Jack Rabbit.

Trails are not super difficult or technical, but they are pretty fun and have some very nice fast, flowy sections. Great place for beginners to get used to going a little faster, or for more advanced riders looking to cruise and have some fun. Lots of beautiful views of Lake Chatuge.

Campground is pretty nice though was a little crowded when we were there. Short ride on the road to get from the campground to the trailhead.

Review: Incredibly well marked trail. Exactly what I was expecting - a fairly easy trail with a couple very short climbs. Perfect for the beginner mountain biker, or for just a more relaxing ride for a more seasoned rider. Incredibly well shaded. I kept relatively cool even in the summer heat. Great warm up ride if you're road tripping it to more rigorous trails in NC like Tsali or Brevard.

Went counterclockwise and thought it was a great ride. Will try the other way next time.

Review: Excellent trail for beginners. Lots of mileage and fun, flowy, fast sections. As others have mentioned, this isn't technical at all and would be great for a singlespeed. There's also a small skills area for practice near the parking lot.

Great views of the lake. Even in summer, there was a lot of shade to keep cool.

The campground is one mile up the road and very nice. Great for tent camping. Lake access and very clean. Definitely consider camping if you want a fun group or family biking experience.

Review: This trail was very disappointing . Flow was a minimum with little challenge . Whole time I was riding it I was thinking "this sucks, I can't believe I wasted my day to ride out here". Now the flip side is that it would be a good trail for my 6 and 8 year old.

Review: This is a really nice trail system. Climbs are gentle, views of the lake are beautiful, flow is like Jay Z. If it's hot, pack a bathing suit and your frosty beverage of choice and jump in the lake at the red loop beach. We canmped at the Forest Service campground just a mile down the street, and had a really nice car camping spot on the C loop with a view and access to the lake. My only complaint about the trail is that there was really no technical sections at all. A rigid mountain bike or a cyclocross bike would be perfect for this trail system. A few features or rock gardens as optional lines would make this trail system even better. Still, it is quite fun and I recommended if you're in the area.

Review: great trail system - good, fast flow with mostly gentle climbs There are 7 different loops coming off the main trail loop for a distance of around 13 miles. The co-ordinates @ the trailhead are: 35.00111 -87.76250. (1st driveway on the left past the graveyard)

Review: Awesome place to ride for the beginner on up. Flowy and fast for the more experienced, enjoyable for the novice. Stopped here on a trip south to Santos because Tsali was closed, and had a blast! Lots of fun, met some locals who were friendly and welcoming, trails were well maintained and well marked. Plus you can camp right there!

Review: This has to be the best trail I have ever ridden. Very nice flow and well maintained. Trails are easy to follow as they are very well marked. The climbs aren't that bad either, considering all the riding we do is in FL. I would def. recommend for a beginner or intermediate rider.

Review: Very good flow, and a stacked loop system that is easy to follow. Certainly a trail for beginers and confidence building intermediate riders. Probably the best marked system anywhere. If more trail systems would use the marking system that Jackrabbitt uses paper maps would no longer be necessary. For those who haven't been there they have a simple map drawing of the entire system with the current location marked. These are posted at every intersection. For new riders and groups, such as whole families that I saw riding there, the markings give piece of mind, allowing them to enjoy the ride without getting lost. It is very evident that a great partnership of SABA and the Forest Service has been formed here, and I'm sure more trails and skill development areas are in their plans.

Review: For older out of shape guys like me (55), this trail is absolutely fantastic. I've ridden Tsali as well, and like this one so much better. At Tsali, it seemed like the climbs went on forever, whereas at Jack Rabbit....a little bit of climbing is always soon rewarded with lots of downhill. FLOW, FLOW, FLOW is how this place is best described. I'm done with all the technical dangerous stuff, and all the broken bones and surgeries I've endured as a result.....can't keep up with my 20 year old twin sons any longer! This place is about 30 minutes from my cabin in Murphy, and I plan on coming here many, many times in the future. LOVE IT !! I also live 15 minutes from Alafia at my main home in FL, the site of most of my injuries, and whereas I love it too, it pales in comparison.

Review: We loved these trails!! Being from Miami, long climbs are not common for us while technical stuff is. SABA has done a terrific job with Jackrabbit from the design, condition and signage of the system. It was challenging enough but a helluva lotta fun. This ride was also a great prep for Tsali Left Loop, ridden 2 days later. The points made by all the other reviewers were spot on and very helpful. It had rained ~30 hrs. non-stop Mon. and we rode Wed. The terrain drained surprisingly well with practically no peanut butter mud or wet spots. We even saw a few deer on one loop, upper ridge. Our cabin near Franklin was an hr. away and well worth the drive. Hwy 64 had beautiful scenery and fall colors. Make the trip, you won't regret it!

Review: Just rode Jack Rabbit for the first time and I will definitely be back. The entire system is VERY accessible to riders of all skill levels. The one trail I didn't ride in the system was Upper Ridge, but I think I can say High Point is the most technical trail in the system really just due to a reasonable grade, partially rocky, climb and descent in and out. Other than that, the "climbs", if you can call them that, are very tame and there is just a ton of fast, smooth, flowy singletrack. A very fun, satisfying departure from the trails I'm used to. You absolutely MUST ride Sneaking Creek in the clockwise direction. Best bang for your pedaling buck that I've ridden anywhere. Slightly unrelated: I also camped at the campground. The waterfront sites aren't really that close to the shore, but it's only a short walk down the hill. The sites are well kept and clean with your standard parking spot, fire ring and tent pad. Restrooms and showers are located in the B loop only. I was in C loop and could've made the shortish walk, but didn't bother using them anyway.

Review: The majority of this system is perfectly suited for introducing new riders to the sport. White to red/ red-white to yellow is good for 7 miles of beginner-friendly trail. You can pick up a ton of speed out here and the clay reacts like snot when wet, so be safe!

Review: I live about 40 miles from this trail. Lots of fun a little something for everyone except those that like technical stuff. Only about a one mile loop could be considered difficult and that is due to a rather steep ride...but are rewarded with a good downhill if you like that type of thing.

Review: My favorite trail so far. I've only ridden a handful of trails so far, but this one has the best scenery by far. In the summer about half way through, there is a rope swing to the lake for a nice cool off. Also there is a fallen tree to ride across if you are looking for a challenge. Great trail!

Review: Fantastic trail, flows really well. If you like speed, this is the trail. This is real mountain biking with the winding, up & down slopes and scenery. Trail is in great shape. We planned to stay for 2 days but ended up staying for the week to ride the trail every day.

Review: Awesome trails, great scenery, and fun as heck! These trails flowed amazingly well. They were well maintained and the signs were one of the best I have seen at any trail thus far. Brand new, with a number for each junction, and a mini trail map as well. Arrows pointed you in the direction of each trail. You can't get lost out here. Fun downhill sections you can get a lot of speed on, and the uphills were a great workout while not being too insane.

Review: Fast and fun!! Went there today and rode everything once and then most of it a second time. Everything is very well marked making it almost impossible to get lost. The way the loops are set up there are lots of ways to change it up to give a different feel to the trail. The first loop I did everything and it was about 13 miles. Also was pleased to see the bathrooms in the parking lot.

Review: I was fortunate to have ridden the Jackrabbit, 3 times over the past year. And I plan on making many more trips back. Built as a stacked loop system, the 'rabbit is a beautiful, flowing, beginner/intermediate friendly trail, with something for everyone. Nothing extremely difficult, but there are several nice challenges and one lung and quad busting climb. Constructed by Mtn. Bike Hall of Famer, Mike Riter and under the direction of SABA's Joanna Akisson the trail is a lesson in sustainability, with a multitude of reverse grade dips to shed water. SABA is a small group of dedicated mountain bikers / road cyclists but they know how to find grant monies, design and build trail. Some excellent trail features (look for the cow bells above your head) and a beautiful covered bridge give the trail unique character. My hat goes off to them on a world class trail tucked away in remote part of NC/GA. We will be back!

Review: I give this trail 2 thumbs up. Probably my favorite trail to ride because the flow and the layout. Its not very technical, but it will get your heart pounding in sections and give you some downhill thrills. Im an intermediate rider and this trail fits perfectly my riding style as well as my fitness level. It is truly a blue trail and should be rode at a fast pace to get all that this trail has to offer. Spectacular views.

Review: as has been said several times - this is beginner friendly territory, but so enjoyable to ride. Very nicely maintained. Can challenge yourself with speed and distance more so than with roots, rocks, jumps, turns, climbs, and downhill as these things are few and far between. I drove 100 miles to ride here and was not disappointed.

Review: Definitely a beginner friendly trail. Not much challenge for more advanced riders, but the flow makes it fun. Definitely worth one visit-- more if you're local. Looks like all the trails are machine cut, but this system is the best example of machine cut trails I've ever seen. Think of Harbin's park. Now think of Harbin's park done right. That's this trail system.

Review: Rode the trails here this morning and my only real complaint was that it was over too fast. You can easily ride everything out here in under 2 hours. Turn around and run it in reverse if you have some extra time to spend. Though it may have been mentioned before, this trail is like a little brother to FATS in Augusta, GA, and the scenery reminded me of Tsali in NC. Not quite the same abundance of jumps, but close enough to make a guy happy. Built for speed and fun, this is a great trail to introduce someone to mountain bike riding. Keep an eye out for the trail runners as they seem to like this place as well.

Review: Super fun and well maintained trails alongside beautiful Lake Chatuge. Nice and cruisey with some tight turns here and there, but nothing too gnarly. Had the good fortune of talking to some of the trails' designers in the lot. They're really proud of their work, and with good reason. If you're riding in North GA, mark this spot on your map and check it out.

Review: Just completed this trail as part of a group ride and was pleasantly surprised. This was an extremely fast track with plenty of technically easy downhills that will be a pleasure for both beginning and advanced riders. I drove 2 hours to ride this trail and would make the trip again to enjoy this gem in the North Georgia Mountains. I can count the number of roots and rocks encountered on one hand. Sneaky Creek is awesome and the Red Loop is a blast. Go have a fantastic time on this superlative trail.

Review: This trail system is awesome. Fast, fun, you can really get moving, max fun for min effort. If you have ridden and liked FATS you will love Jackrabbit. It is well marked and easy to follow, just ride the white loop counter clockwise and ride into the colored loops that all come back onto the the white trail that ends in the parking lot. You could easily ride this trail system 3 times in one day and not get bored with it. Great job SABA on design and build of this trail, I had a blast.

Review: The 'white blaze' is the Central/core loop, but the entire system has many optional trails to equal 14.5 miles. It appeals to beginner to advanced skills and is tons of fun. Great campground adjacent to trail and within short drive to other lodging. Trail is in the middle of a multitude of surrounding epic rides, e.g. Tsali, Tanasi, Hanging Dog and Unicoi- plan a trip to stay a few days and visit them all

Review: Actually located in North Carolina, but closer to the town of Hiawassee than Hayesville. This trail is awesome, tons of fun for both families and more advanced riders. Just under 15 miles of trail now (stacked loop design, so can do as little as 3 miles or keep adding more loops), with one bridge being constructed along with new parking lot facilities. Also, several optional TTF's being planned as future projects.

Review: A nice series of a few loops no more 10 miles all together. I live within a half a mile from it so if you nedd directions ask me. Its on hwy175 in NC and 75 in GA depends which way your coming its a mile from the state line. turn onto jackrabbit national forest go straight and up a hill a church is on the left and the entrance is shortly after coming down the hill lots of parking, gravel and there are usually 3 to 4 cars there all the time. Sorry about the run on sentences i dont feel like taking to much time on this.

Review: Very well maintained. High Trail was a challenge, others are nice easy to intermediate. Good views from High Trail, I bet its even better in winter. Nice catwalk and some 1-2' jumps. You can carry alot of speed, they have some good banking on some turns. I'll run it again! Directions are a bit off - coming south on 175 pass the high bridge and go about 2 miles, hang a right on Jack Rabbit Mtn Road. Go another mile, pass the Philadelphia Baptist Church, and left onto gravel after church (theres a Jack Rabbit Hiking Trail sign, but its past the turn). Park right there and head in. Anyone know of other trails in the area?
