Mountain Biking Pinhoti Trail: P1 / Bear Creek Pinhoti

*****   Add a review
#11 of 407 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#161 in the world

This section of singletrack connects from the Bear Creek trail to Wilderness
Road. Locals commonly refer to it as P1, and it can make a great ride all by
itself. This is classic Pinhoti, so expect some challenging climbs, fast
descents, and luxurious singletrack! Some of the trail lies on a very old
gravel road grade which has reverted back to nature, and some of it lies on
narrow singletrack bench.

Getting there
The Pinhoti is a 130 mile hiking/biking trail that begins in Alabama and ends at the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. For this section it's recommended to use Mulberry Gap as a base camp and ride out-and-back from there, perhaps combining with Bear Creek or other Pinhoti Sections.
