Davenport Mountain OHV Trails

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Alt Names

Nottely Lake, Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge Ranger District, Appalachia Mountains

Last Known StatusOpen

Located on the western shores of Nottely Lake, this area offers an ATV trail that is about 6 miles long. The trail forms a nice loop with moderate elevation changes with scenic views of the surrounding mountains.

The trail is rated as mostly easy but there are some sections that are more challenging. The trails and staging area are only open for day use but camping can be found a few miles north at Poteete Creek Campground. An OHV permit is required to ride here which can be purchased onsite at the self pay kiosk.

This area closes seasonally to motorized use beginning January 1 through the end of March but is also prone to temporary closures throughout the year due to inclement weather.
