Mountain Biking Pinhoti Trail: P3

*****   Add a review
#16 of 404 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#390 in the world

The P3 section of the Pinhoti runs about 5-6 miles from the Cohutta
Wilderness Overlook on Highway 52 west of Ellijay down to old CCC camp
road. This is a great trail to ride as a shuttle, but can be fun as an out-and-
back as well. This trail features one nice, LONG downhill, a few stiff climbs,
and some gorgeous switchbacks and exposed bench-cut singletrack.

The construction of this section of trail is stellar!
