Make sure you get a map of this trail before you attempt it. I had a map and I even got lost, turning this 12 mile ride into a 20 mile nightmare. This trail has a couple of big climbs but correspondingly has a few big downhills. Not too difficult - most ascents are gradual. A good workout - just make sure you know where you're going.
Review: A limitless amount of trails for running and hiking - some for mountain biking when you get off of the actual Amicalola Falls Park property. We loved it! The staff at the lodge are outstanding!
Review: There are some great rutted out 4x4 roads up top that allow you to touch up your technical riding skills. I haven't had a chance to try to connect the entire loop yet to see if its doable, but when I do I'll be sure to post back.
Review: WARNING --- THIS TRAIL IS NOW CLOSED! The US Forest Service has blocked access to a major portion of the trail, and it has allowed the formerly maintained road to become overgrown with trees. The posted sign says something about allowing the area to return to it's natural state for the benefit of wildlife, etc.
Review: I rode this trail a few times when I was new to mtn biking. I even rode by myself twice. There were some pretty rough, but not fun downhills.
With all the other great rides in Northern Georigia, why do this one?
