Mountain Biking Pinhoti Trail: Snake Creek Gap To Dug Gap

****   Add a review

This is one of the most challenging singetrack sections of the Pinhoti Trail. Mostly singletrack, from the parking lot it goes straight up for about 3 miles. Then a technical ridgeline with some more climging. This is the first 16 miles of the 32 mile "Snake Creek Gap 6 Mountain Time Trial Series" held annually by NWGA SORBA. It's very challenging with total climbing of 2388 feet in 8 miles and total descending of 2732 feet in 8 miles. In this section you will ride over 4 mountains with minim elevation of about 1000 feet and max elevation of about 1800 feet. Be prepared to be on the trail around 3 hours if you are an average rider. Bring more water and gells than you think you need, it's a tough one. Roots, rocks, big rocks, little rocks and roots. I reccommend trying this one with someone who knows the trail first. You can check out NWGA SORBA Forum(, there'ss always peole who are posting rides to the "Snake" and would be glad to take first-timers. You can do this ride as a semi out and back by riding the road back (which makes total ride about 24 miles), you can do this as a shuttle ride back(takes 2 cars obviously), or if you are a bad-a$$, you can ride the actual trail out-and-back for 32 miles of some serious trail riding. Good Luck. You can print a map from this site:
