Beautiful, smooth, well marked singletrack inside the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area. There are a lot of rides in the Cohutta mountains that will make you feel like you are the only person for miles, but few of them have singletrack this smooth that was also designed for bikes. Having ridden it, I'm surprised to learn that this trail gets such sparse use. No other bike tire tracks the entire 11 miles and only one set of horse tracks. Thats a shame because this trail was great. My only complaint was that there were several trees down. Even with this obvious lack of trail maintenance, the trail was still fast, fun, and smooth. This place could easily be a 5 star ride. The climbs are challenging without being ridiculous and the downhills are fast and flowy. Prepare to get your feet wet at the second creek crossing or use the bailout halfway.
