Trail Description
About this trail
Jackrabbit is a very beginner-friendly trail network and features gentle ups and downs, and is very twisty and very fast! There are very few obstacles, and essentially no technical riding, and very little climbing. However, the flow of this place totally makes up for it!

I am a huge downhill, loose rock, obstacle guy, but this trail is a total blast! This is one of the most fun machine-built trails I have ever ridden!!

The trail system is set up with a central loop that all of the other trails branch off of. Consequently, it's very easy to navigate: just follow the main loop, grab one of the trails off of it, return to the loop, and keep going! If you keep turning in one direction, you should be able to ride pretty much the entire trail system.

It also looks like the campgrounds there are really, really good and really close. I drove by but did not go into them.

Review: This is a perfect trail for families (variety of endurance levels). There is a primary loop that is fun, flowy, short and not difficult for my wife and 7 year old. Off of the primary loop are several additional loops which is more of the same but with some greater intensity of climb and decent. I was able to hit those hard with my older boys while mom and youngest made their way around the center loop. It's a beautiful, wooded area around the lake.

Review: Speedway Flow Country Fun. This trail is fast and furious. Great views on some of the trails of a gorgeous damned lake in lake Chatuge. Hiawassee and the AT runs through here, so everything seems blissful and it isn't too crowded considering. . . But. this is not challenging whatsoever. It is a fast, flowey, speedway, grin on your face, go as fast as you can and enjoy the lake scenerey on the side trail. Great fun and worth it to visit, for sure. Just be a tourist, not a MTB freak.

Review: Perfect for beginners and serious riders. I am here on vacation so I tried it out. Very fast and smooth. I didn't know you could have mountain bike trails without roots??. No serious up, or downhills but pretty fast nonetheless. A beginner, if stay on the Central loop would feel very comfortable. A beginner in good shape can ride anywhere. For those who have been riding a while you will not be challenged but you will have fun. Also, a great workout because to keep your speed up you have to keep pedaling the entire time. By far the best signage I have ever seen on any trail. My only complaint is you get close to the lake but there are a lot of trees and shrubs that block what looks like a potentially beautiful view. If you live here or are visiting, make sure you ride it.

Review: Really fun! Lots of flow without many jumps or technical turns, but watch for hikers. Great for beginners and very well maintained and marked. The signage is awesome, nearly impossible to lose the trail here. SABA does a great job maintaining this trail.

Review: I love coming to this trail every time I'm in the area. There is nothing technical, but the flow is off the charts. The top of the biggest hill and the beach section have the best views and are worth the extra work to get there. It is also well marked and well maintained. I definitely recommend it!
