Trail Description
About this trail
The Stonewall Falls Trail now offers more challenges and greater distance than before. The trail is now considered by bikers as a true mountain bike trail and mountain bikers appreciate its challenge and the enjoyment it provides. In 2007 we completed nearly 7.5 miles of new single-track, which results in the best mountain biking has to offer in northeast Georgia. By design, it is not the easiest trail in the area, but it is considered to be what a true mountain bike trail should be. This trail is challenging, has a worthwhile distance with optional exits, somewhat technical, and scenic.


The trail is best traveled in a counter-clockwise direction. The trail begins at the parking lot and goes past the gate on the power line access road. From the parking lot, go 200 yards and turn left onto the single-track trail. At mileage 3.4 miles there is an optional exit to allow bikers to exit and return to the parking lot via the power line access road, rather than continue on the trail. There are optional routes along the trail with different difficulty levels. There is a good possibility of seeing wildlife in this area. Wildlife ranges from squirrels, grouse, deer, bobcats, and even wild bear.

Review: I rode this trail on Monday 8/3/18. It isn't terribly easy to find, the road to the trail is very rough and the trailhead sign is off in the woods a bit. I'm pretty sure there were one or two other people out riding that day, but I never saw them on the trail. I was solo for the whole ride. Just got to say, I had a great time on this trail! It's an adventure for sure. I did about 14 miles according to Strava, starting from the trail head. You m sure there are more miles to do because I decided to take a short cut to the gravel road due towards the end of the trail to time constraints. The trail was very raw, several downed trees, ridiculous amounts of spider webs, but all said a very good trail. One climb in particular was about 2k feet, it's all doable stuff it you have the legs for it. Not that much tech, but remote and fun. I clocked a top speed of 32 on one of DH and I'm sure better riders could do way way faster than that.

Review: The trails were mostly clear with 2 downed trees. The climbing was a good workout. Don't go too fast down the hills because you have to stop to cross the creek about 6 times and I did not feel like the crossings were rideable. The fall is really cool. Slow down as you hear it unless you want to ride over some rock obstacles at mach speed.

Review: Great ride. Not very technical but narrow in many places. Very wet from much rain made the climbs difficult due to slickness. Water flows on several crossings were to high to ride...wading across. Waterfalls were spectacular and roaring. Several uncleared obstacles but not too bad. Soft Vegetation is leaning over the trail so visibility is limited in area. Rode on a Sunday morning with my 17 year old son. Remote. Didn't see a sole. Recommend riding with a partner.

Review: Truly a beautiful trail! We went on a Tuesday and did not see anyone until we were all loaded up and on our way home. I really enjoyed the stream crossings and rhododendron. There is a great downhill to the waterfalls at the end where we saw trout in the pool and enjoyed some lunch. One of my favorite trails!

Review: Had a blast riding this trail this weekend. It was a bit hard to find, but that's just because it was my first time riding here. The parking lot is at the end of the dirt road. Ride "up hill" and keep your eyes open for the trailhead. Once on the trail, it's narrow and quite overgrown. The local fauna tried to take me out a few times but it wasn't bad enough that would keep me from coming back. It was probably worse for me than it normally would be due to the rain the night before (I was soaked from the rain on the leaves) Lots of climbs and descents. The last couple of miles were a super fun downhill ride with 4 creek crossings. It's was a great way to end the 11 mile ride. Will definitely be back

Review: Fun trail that does not appear to get a lot of use. Trailside vegetation hangs across the trail in many places. There are no real technical sections.

Review: Great trail, not too overgrown in mid April. Decent climb if you want to exit at 3.5 miles, not too strenuous up till that point. Up to mile 5, more climbing, then fun single track for a couple miles, back to small climbs for another 2 miles, then easy cruise out along the falls. Trail pretty shaded due to tall trees and able to catch a breeze, which helps you to not overheat. Take plenty of water and some energy as there is moderate climbing throughout. Would definitely do again.

Review: Fun trail, and the creek crossings (all four of them) are a nice blast on a hot day. Good elevation change over the course of the ride. It does get overgrown, so where glasses to protect your eyes. Also, always feels like a place I would run up on a black bear, so that might not be beyond the realm of possible. The waterfalls near the parking lot are a great way to cool off, though they are fairly heavily used by non-bikers for recreation.
