The land that the new section of trail was built on was purchased by the Conservation Fund, in an effort to reroute all of the remaining road segments of the Pinhoti Trail to provide a true, uninterrupted wilderness experience.

The Pinhoti is the longest mountain bike legal trail in Georgia, running over 100 miles “from the Alabama Line in Polk County, GA to the Benton MacKaye Trail near the Cohutta Wilderness,” according to SORBA. This new trail segment will add a whopping 20 miles of blazed trail!
