This is one of the most challenging singetrack sections of the Pinhoti Trail. Mostly singletrack, from the parking lot it goes straight up for about 3 miles. Then a technical ridgeline with some more climging. This is the first 16 miles of the 32 mile "Snake Creek Gap 6 Mountain Time Trial Series" held annually by NWGA SORBA. It's very challenging with total climbing of 2388 feet in 8 miles and total descending of 2732 feet in 8 miles. In this section you will ride over 4 mountains with minim elevation of about 1000 feet and max elevation of about 1800 feet. Be prepared to be on the trail around 3 hours if you are an average rider. Bring more water and gells than you think you need, it's a tough one. Roots, rocks, big rocks, little rocks and roots. I reccommend trying this one with someone who knows the trail first. You can check out NWGA SORBA Forum(http://www.nwgasorba.org/chewdafat/index.php), there'ss always peole who are posting rides to the "Snake" and would be glad to take first-timers. You can do this ride as a semi out and back by riding the road back (which makes total ride about 24 miles), you can do this as a shuttle ride back(takes 2 cars obviously), or if you are a bad-a$$, you can ride the actual trail out-and-back for 32 miles of some serious trail riding. Good Luck. You can print a map from this site: http://www.nwgasorba.org/DugGap_To_SnakeCreek.pdf
