Mountain Biking The Bee Trail

****   Add a review
#166 of 397 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#4,451 in the world

This is an unmarked network of trails criss-crossing inside the northern end of the Montgomery Creek loop http://www.singletracks.com/bike-trails/montgomery-creek-trail.html . Highlights include deep stream crossing, beautiful stream-side singletrack, remote trails, nice downhills and climbs. Follow the most worn path, and you'll do ok.
This trail is also known as "Black Falls" or "Montgomery Creek Falls" for the gorgeous waterfall that it passes.

Getting there
From Dahlonega, head out of town West on Hwy 9. Turn right onto 52, and then right again at Grizzle's Store onto Nimblewill Church road. Turn right at the sign for the Bull mountain parking lot, and keep right, heading up USFS 28-1. You're going to drive until you're almost to Camp Frank D. Merril. One trail head starts before you reach any of the roads into Ranger camp, and has one of the T shaped barricades blocking motorized vehicles from using it. Alternatively, access it from many points along the Montgomery Creek loop http://www.singletracks.com/bike-trails/montgomery-creek-trail.html

    This is a fun section of singletrack that I typically ride west-east starting off FS141. It's flowy and mostly smooth and has a very backcountry feel even though it's not very far out from main roads. After you pass the falls the trail widens and climbs a little until you get back to FS141 near the Ranger base.

    The Fools Gold 50/100 mile race is getting routed down this trail tomorrow. I rode it today, and the main section (which is referred to as the Bee Trail) is very rideable except for 2 downed trees. The big waterfall is a nice touch too!

    at the time of this post, there were a couple of large trees down at points along the trail, but it was rideable for the most part. Great singletrack!
