Mountain Biking Viking Trail

**   Add a review
#314 of 395 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#11,751 in the world

This is just a basic paved path like the Silver Comet Trail. It connects the main campus at Berry College to the Mountain Campus. It runs along the treeline then under a power/utility line. Three miles one way (if you only ride the trail, but you can get many more miles by riding some fire road/utility roads or even some of the mtb trails back at the mountain campus). Deer are everwhere along this trail. It's very easy, only a slight grade going up to the mtn campus, you really don't notice this until you're on your way back and you notice that you're coasting a bit. This is my 5 year old's favorite because he can ride his own bike on it.

Getting there
Berry College Campus, off of hwy 27 north heading out of Rome. Park in the parking lot behind the building southwest from the Circle drive thing. In the back of that parking lot is a sign that says "Viking Trail Parking". Across the street you should see the gate to the trail.

    This is a paved bike and walking path. Very little challenge. You can exit the Mountain Campus end, turn left, go by the horse stables, and make a loop by adding Old Redmond Gap Road.

    The viking trail is an asphalt path, wide enough for a car, completely straight for 3 miles, and flat. It runs parallel to the 3 mile stretch road connecting Berry's main campus and mountain campus. There are no cars, so no fear of being run over by Joe Sixpack texting and driving.* Review edited 10/18/2012

    great way to get outside and get someone that into the sport. at the end you can cross over and take the fire road back all the way to the ford buildings.

    This is an extremely easy ride on the paved trail, and if you start on mountain campus, you can make a loop out of this ride by crossing over Stretch road at "pole 3"on the left (if riding from mountain campus) and the following the dirt road beside a dry lake bed. This road will eventually lead back to the parking lot near Frost Chapel. For more info.. check out SouthernHiker.com
