Mountain Biking Augusta Canal

****   Add a review
#71 of 405 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#1,758 in the world

You can leave your suspension forks at home for the ride on the canal, but do bring an extra water bottle along--the Georgia humidity is a biker's worst nightmare. The singletrack starts at the pumping station by the railroad tracks. There are two well marked loops, a red (about 4 miles) and white (about 3 miles). If you stick to the canal, the ride can be a leisurely Saturday afternoon stroll with the family, an intense endurance-building workout or a shortcut to historic downtown Augusta. Be sure to check out what's going on at Riverwalk. There are often concerts or shows at the ampitheater, a large Christmas tree and festive decorations in the winter, and in the summer there is a large fountain of water in the center of Riverwalk to cool off in. You can also grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants, visit Fort Discovery or the Augusta Art Museum, and have a snowcone.
