Mountain Biking River Loop

****   Add a review
#97 of 404 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#2,527 in the world

The trail is well marked. Start by heading south down to the Cartecay River. This part is a bit challenging. The trail comes back north from the river and connects to the Red and White loop (marked with red and white markers.) Continue on the Red and White for about 1 mile. The river loop seperates off to the left. It loops back down to the river. After about 1 mile it reconnects with the Red and White loop. Follow the Red and White loop back to the start.
