Mountain Biking Tennessee Divide

***   Add a review
#176 of 398 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#4,713 in the world

Long slog up Trey Mountain, down Indian Grave Gap road, up a paved road
through Unicoi Gap then back on FS roads to the start (over another mountain).
Several options at the end to get back depending on how you're feeling, FS178 is
the shortest (left turn off of 44 through a gate).

    Some great gravel road riding, with some very long, steep climbs. I just wish there was some actual singletrack to ride in this area... if there was, I would have ridden here so much more when I lived in GA! Oh, BTW, on my ride here, I saw a MASSIVE wild hog! At first I thought it was a black bear, but then it turned sideways to me and I realized it was a hog. That thing was huge!

    Long climbs followed by some of the best/smoothest double track downhill I've ever seen. You cross a small creek at the bottom and begin the climb up unicoi gap and onto FS 44. You can continue on FS 44 back to the station or hang a left and take some less traveled FS 178. FS 178 was a bit rutted and bumpy, but super fun. Great gravel grind for a wet day ride.
