While all of the trails at Jack Rabbit are flowy, Sneaking Creek is the king of flow! You'll find yourself pedaling as fast as possible and just reveling in the momentum you're able to carry up hills and through turns. Oh, and there are a few big whoops and other surprises thrown in!

Before you go
  • No Drinking water
  • No E-bikes permitted
  • No Fat biking allowed in winter
  • No Fee required
  • No Lift service
  • No Night riding allowed
  • No Pump track
  • No Restrooms
Getting there
From the MacDonald's/ Huddle House traffic light in downtown Hiawasse (US 64 west), head out of town towards Hayesville. Turn left when you see the sign for Jack Rabbit Campground( US Forest Service), over the border into NC. As you come to a bend and can see the lake, the trailhead is on the left BEFORE THE CURVE with a sign" Jack Rabbit Mountain Bike and Hiking trails". It's in a grassy field. I drove past, but saw the sign as I passed it the first time.

    An enjoyable lollipop that drops you in on the stick and rewards you with a fantastic downhill finale before you climb back out if you take the CCW direction. The route has gotten somewhat convoluted recently due to race promoters adding alternate paths alongside barbed wire to get rid of head on traffic. Basically, if you are alongside a barbed wire fence, you chose poorly and should double back to take the other trail direction.

    Sneaking Creek at Jack Rabbit is simply the best bang for your pedaling buck that I've ridden. Clockwise is the best direction for a couple of amazing, flowy, downhill sections. Specifically the one mentioned in a previous review about 1/3 of the way around. Simply awesome. I definitely would recommend, however, that trail builders think about adding a few more little rollers throughout. More small to medium jump opportunities would make this one the best trails anywhere.

    This is my favorite of the trails at Jackrabbit. Take the loop clockwise and the downhill about 1/3 of the way around is easily the best you'll find in this system! Watch for the small jump near the end - big air.
