Mountain Biking Red And White Loop

**   Add a review
#248 of 397 mountain bike trails in Georgia

This trail connects to and sits inside of the River Loop. The singletrack is fairly smooth and flat by North Georgia standards. Connect this with the main River Loop trail for a nice ride!

    Meh. Cool singletrack trail to start through the woods, but came out of the woods after about .75 miles to a forest road and stayed the way the rest of the time. Brutal climbs and not much fun. Saw the trail that went downhill to the creek and it looked fun, but the wife wasn't feeling it. Going to try out the River loop by myself and hopefully it is an actual mtb trail and not hunting roads.

    There's been some sort of issue with these trails. Some of them have been bulldozed, and others look like they are in the progress of being changed? I'd recommend that you skip this.

    The Red and White loop (AKA Boy Scout loop) connects to the River Loop and adds another ~3 miles of riding through the Rich Mountain WMA. The majority of the Red and White loop is old forest road that has basically reverted back to singletrack but it seems well maintained and very smooth. Not as scenic or challenging as the River Loop, the Red and White still adds much needed milage to the trail system and shouldn't be missed. A short, extra section of riverside trail actually branches off the Red and White loop and shouldn't be missed. With a little more distance and/or technical challenge I'd have rated this trail 4 stars.
