Mountain Biking Mount Rachel Trail

***   Add a review
#290 of 395 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#11519 in the world

From Trailhead #1, you'll climb the powerlines on a steep incline before turning left onto the loop. Descend down into a wooded area where you'll curve around and up a short incline before popping out at Trailhead #2. Another steep incline puts you back on the "loop." Turn left and head down a slight decline with lots of big gravel. Take a 90 degree turn to the right and start your gradual ascent up Mt. Rachel for about 1 mile. There a few switchbacks up the climb. There's a bench about midways up to take a rest. Once atop Mt. Rachel, you'll start your very swift descent with several switchbacks for about a quarter of a mile. You'll pop out on the powerline right above Trailhead #1 where you can choose to loop again or head down the powerline.

    This trail is short and without a lot of action. However, the steep inclines make it for an awesome workout! Location being just a few blocks from downtown make it easy to get a quick ride in at any time of the day!

    This trail is steep going up and down. It's pretty short as well. It would be a pretty good place to ride if it wasn't in a bad part of town. I rode here to check it off the list, but I won't be back. I spent the whole ride worrying that my truck would be there when I got back.
