Mountaintown Creek is one of the best descents in North Georgia. The top of the descent has plenty of water bars to launch off of, then it gets steeper and more technical. Lots of rock in places. Eventually the trail mellows way out and you'll cross Mountaintown Creek numerous times. Be ready to get wet. Some crossings are rideable, others are too deep.
It is tough to get to though. You can either ride it as an out and back, a shuttle, or a loop that requires a bunch of fire road climbing.
Mountaintown was in the Singletracks BrutalLoop ride which also hit up Pinhoti 1 and Pinhoti 2. If you add those trails in, the time on the gravel is worth it.
Mountaintown is remote and there are some chunky steep sections at the top. Ride smart.
