Mountain Biking Black Branch Connector

****   Add a review
#106 of 393 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#4791 in the world

This connector trail ties several different major trails together. It runs from the end of the Jake Mountain trail over to Black Branch, across both ends of the Black Branch loop, and connects to the beginning of No Tell.

Some great singletrack riding!

Getting there
From Dahlonega head west on 52, take the slight right to stay on 52, hang
a right onto Nimblewill church road, and a right at the Bull Mountain sign.
Continue up FS Road 28-1 for several miles. Drive past the Turner Creek
trailhead, up and over the ridge and go 1 (maybe 2) more valleys, and park
at the gate on the left. The trail starts just across the road on the right.
Ride in, and take the first left, and you're on the Black Branch connector.

Alternatively, connect to this from the Jake Mountain trail, Black Branch, or
No Tell.

    Use this connector to create a large loop: Black Burn No Tell Nimblewill Branch = about 8 miles of fun.

    Great Loop in the Jake/Bull Network. It is a fun ride and is always on my list since it is about 10 minutes from where I work.

    The forest service rerouted almost this entire section of trail in the spring of 2011. I'm not really sure why, because the new reroute actually feels very similar to what the old trail was like. IE it's still good.

    I always love finding an excuse to ride this trail because it is near-perfect. It swoops through the deep forests with plenty of flow to keep anyone happy! And like I mentioned above, this is actually a real singletrack trail.

    But don't be surprised if you encounter a couple short, punchy climbs.
