Trail Description
About this trail
The latest development of trails to take place along side the Pinhoti Trail.
Though it's not part of the Pinhoti Trail, the Dry Creek trail system straddles
the Pinhoti as it approaches East Armuchee Rd. Riders familiar with the
Snake Creek Gap Time Trial will recognize this area as the start for the 34
mile version of the race. Trails are very well marked with a numbering
system. Bring a map or check the front kiosk to make yourself aware of the
area. This system offers a nice change of pace for a multiday trip to the

Review: This is a great trail system, but don't let the name fool you about being dry. There are plenty of opportunities to get your socks wet. The trails are not these machine cut superhighways that are popping up, you actually need some bike handling skills to negotiate them. The trails are not well marked, so take a little bit of time and review the map or use your garmin course guidance function.
Absolutely worth your time to ride these trails.

Review: Great night riding. Fun flowy trails that make you work just the right amount. Only downside is dodging the horse poop.

Review: $5.00 to park. Signage is bad to none. The trail has some fun sections, but some that are not. Due to the lack of signage, I probably won't do this one again.

Review: Kind of a bummer that there were plenty of parking fee envelopes ($5) and zero maps at the Dry Creek trailhead. Trail was beginner-ish but navigation with no map is way more advanced. Would be a fun trail if you know your way around though. Also plenty of horse dung to dodge if you're into that sort of thing.

Review: Rode these trails as part of the 50 mile Snake Creek Gap Time Trial.

Really impressed with the system overall. It's like a baby Pinhoti. Some climbing, a tiny bit of rock, but nothing that will crush your soul.

Trails are well built and drain well. Great place to take someone who is looking to venture beyond their local trails.

Camp at the trailhead and ride Dry Creek along with some out and back along the Pinhoti. That would make for a great weekend.

Review: This is a great set of trails inside a national forest. There are plenty of options for distance, incline, and terrain. This is one of those trail systems that requires you to make a day trip since it is in the middle of nowhere and includes many trails. However, it is well worth the ride. Beware the trails up the mountain as they can get steep for several miles!

Review: Outstanding! Tremendous flowing trail system...nothing too technical....but certainly can be a challenge on some of the connecting trails. Trailhead was fantastic...as I would say it could hold 100 vehicles...has a map kiosk, and nice restrooms...this trail system is also an equestrian use system, as the unusually large parking area is designed for horse trailers. Several 2 to 3 ft creek crossings at the time of my ride....which could pose a problem if temps are in the 30's. Overall another great system in NW Georgia.

Review: Trails are fast and flowy with little to no technical features. A little bit of climbing here and there but nothing extended or extremely steep. Trail surface is generally smooth but some sections are little more loose/gravely than others and there are a couple of turns you can wipe out hard on if you're not careful. I've ridden here the past 3 weekends in a row and everytime it gets better. The only trail I didn't particulary care for is the red trail (East Armuchee)..more double track than single and more of a horse trail. Wheat (purple) was like that in some spots but there is some decent single track mixed in. The rest of the trails are all super fun single track. Lots of opinions on how to run these trails (thought the chainbuster route was to slow) but I think this route ran the best: Parking > loblolly spur > right on loblolly (green) > right on Pinhoti > left on Turkey (pink) > left on Pinhoti > right on dry creek (yellow) > left on mt joy (orange) > right on lolbolly (green) > left on e. armuchee (red) > left on stirrup (blue) > right on lolbolly (green) > parking lot

Review: Went there today, got a little mixed up in where everybody parks but there was some folks on the trail that squared me on that. Well kept trail, rode parts of blue and yellow, smoothe flow nothing major, definitely good for time trial. Enjoyed it and will be back tomorrow.
