Trail Description
About this trail
Black Branch is an excellent 4-mile loop of singletrack, especially after the reroute a couple years back. If you drive in to ride this trail, this is a pretty good beginners ride, but there are still a couple of climbs that will sneak up on ya. All in all, an excellent loop with some very fun, flowy descents.

Review: One of the most fun, flowing, fast loops in the region. The first half will be a great descent, followed by a second half climb. The climb going counter-clockwise is slightly more difficult, but manageable. Go ride this loop now.

Review: Fun, flowing loop. The first half will be a great descent with the second half a manageable climb. The climb riding counter-clockwise is slightly more difficult. The steam crossing is where the descent/ascent changes. This is one of the fastest, flowing loops in the region. Go ride it now!

Review: Great Ride today. The Muddy trail made it a little more challenging. The trail had some leaf cover but nothing too bad. It's Singletrack right? It was a blast bombing down it and the uphills make you question your manhood. Great Trail

Review: This trail still starts and ends in the same spot, but like the Jake Mountain Trail and others in the trail system, this was recently redone (spring 2011) to be much more sustainable and have much better flow! Some of the old sections of trail are used, but much of it is new, and is nice and bench-cut, and is built to last. This is a super fun trail!!!

Review: This loop enters and exits FS 28-1 just South of Camp Wahsega. Much more singletrack than the majority of the trails at Bull/Jake Mt. The current Forest Service markings list it as 223N. If your map still lists it as 28G, your map is old. Pick up a new one at the Jake Mt parking lot. The climb out after the creek is a lung buster and the GA red clay will really make your wheels feel like cinder blocks. Luckily, it seems this trail doesn't get much horse traffic and the condition of the trail shows it.

Similar Trail: Much like the Jake Mt trail but with more singletrack.
