The trail is a loop consisting of singletrack on old forest roadbeds, a gated Forest Service road, and newly cut singletrack. The trail follows two parallel ridgelines with a dip at either end to cross Sumac Creek. There are some great views along the latter part of the ride and the fall color is great all along this trail.
Highlights: The view along the ridgelines are great. There are some pretty spots down along Sumac Creek that just beg for a good camera and a few minutes of exploration. The creek crossings are deep and refreshing. If you like switchbacks, you'll love this trail. If you don't like switchbacks, at least you'll be better at riding them after you finish this trail. The climbs are typical Cohutta--short but steep, and you have to earn the three overlooks. The fall color is awesome throughout the trail. There is a sweet singletrak downhill halfway through the ride that makes the ensuing climb out almost worth it.
