Last Known StatusOpen

About 11 miles of connecting trail loops can be found here and most are rated as either "Difficult" or "Most Difficult", so expect steep and rocky. Also note that these are the type of trails that get even more difficult during wet weather. There are a few trails that are fairly easy, but not enough to keep a novice entertained for very long.

The trails are are closed seasonally to motorized use from January through March, but exact dates vary so check with the ranger station before heading out.

Thanks go to Georgia Bounty Runners club for maintaining these trails and helping to keep them open.
