A wicked little gem of fast singletrack off the beaten path.

Overview

Dogs: Off-leash

Description

Off the side of old 411 near Rabun County High School, is a somewhat unnoticeable, but marked, entrance to this trail. Use caution if you choose to drive up the forest road that leads to the trail heads. You may have to park on the first 25 feet of the entrance road and ride in due to the road conditions.

To climb the difficult section of this trail first, head to the left and ride up the steep climb with the large rock slabs to the right of the waterfall. To climb this trail gradually, head to the right and ride up the forest road until you see the trail entrance to the left. There are three stream crossings on this trail that are shallow; two of them are passable on bike. Either way in will reward you with a fast roller-coaster ride on this trail. The climbs are steep but short and lead to fast short downhill sections. The trail meanders through different types of forest in a very short distance making the scenery interesting and unique. This is an amazing trail for it's small size.

Finding the trail was a little hard. Turn at water/sewer treatment building. It's almost exactly a mile up dirt road. Trail was fun and easy to follow 12mi

a fun/fast trail - needs some serious grooming. Pinestraw over most of the trail made it tough. Wife hit head on a downed tree after blind down left.

I'm about to head back over to Clayton to ride this soon. Let me know if you're interested in joining. Will be some time this month (November). Nov 7, 2015
"Hidden Gem" is a perfect description of this trail! Great backcountry vibe out there. Some really punchy climbs and a few fast descents keep it fun. The rocky section at the very end by the falls is worth sessioning for extra fun Nov 23, 2015
Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. It has a nice back country feel. It's a solid intermediate trail do to the elevation changes but nothing very technical. We accidentally took the cut off on Stonwewall but we went and rode White Twister as well. Both trails are totally clear of any downed trees. White Twister did have a little bit more overgrowth but nothing too bad. Oct 8, 2017
