Mountain Biking Windy Gap Trail

****   Add a review
#82 of 395 mountain bike trails in Georgia
#3193 in the world

This trail can be ridden as an out and back, shuttled from top to bottom, or
as part of a greater loop incorporating the Milma trail and the Tibbs trail.
Ridden south to north, it's a killer doubletrack climb that turns into technical
singletrack near the top of the mountain. Ridden downhill, north to south,
it's a beast of a downhill that has TONS of opportunities for airtime and
some sick banked turns to keep up your speed. Try to keep your eyes on
the trail even though the surrounding views are amazing. No matter how
you decide to ride this one, you are gonna love it.

    Awesome trail, can't believe I hadn't heard about this trail before. Nice steady climb to the top with Lake Conasauga a mile from the trails end at the top, and then a fast flowy ride down from the top. Really enjoyable ride going up or down!

    Are you sure you went all the way up? It get much more difficult after the "Experience Riders Only" sign. I do a lot of climbing in this region and this one was brutal.

    This is a motorcyle trail for crying out loud. Why is this even listed as a moutain bike trail. I thought I was going to get ran over by atv's and motorcycles. One again, great example of georgia out and back trails.

    This is a totally rocking downhill! The upper sections is super gnarly with massive rocks and some steep switchbacks, and then the bottom straightens out and offers up jump after jump with several massive berms to rail. This fun ridden as a shuttle with a full-on DH bike, although the drive from bottom to top is a long ways around.

    Though most people normally do this trail as part of a greater loop, we chose to shuttle it as a downhill ride on our trip. Easily, one of the BEST downhill rides in the State of GA. "Thrilling" just doesn't do it justice. I will definitely be back to ride it again. Maybe next time I'll incorporate the other trails in the immediate area for the loop version but there is no way I'm going to miss getting to ride down this one. * Review edited 12/28/2010
