Mostly Dry - A few rocks and roots, but fast and fun. more flat turns than I'd like, but as long as you check your speed into them, its not a big deal. With a little TLC (and some berms) this could go from good to amazing.

Quick little climbing loop through hot, dry pine forest.

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. The entrance to this trail is a bit difficult to spot. About 100 feet back from the fork in the forest road, down and off into the brush, is the entrance to this trail. A sign is present, but barely visible.

Unlike the Stonewall Falls trail, this trail snakes through hot, humid, open canopy pine forest. There's much more sand on portions of this trail, but not difficult to ride. The trail has some steep climbs and some very quick twisty downhill sections. Part of the trail loops back on itself and you can either ride back to the entrance marked with the sign or hit a series of massive dirt jumps that throw you out onto the forest entrance road; another barely visible trailhead.

Hiked the trail today after the storm and there are approximately 14 large trees down across the trail. Majority will require a chainsaw.

Not a bad trail. Will come back in the winter when I can see the trail. Too much overgrowth and downed trees right now 3.6mi

Trail seems to be pretty good to go even wet. No major downed trees or need to dismount. 3mi — 1h 00m

Trail could use some grooming. A lot of overgrowth. Also check yourself for ticks after the ride, my buddy and I both found 2 on ourselves. 3.8mi

I really like this trail for quick ride while I'm visiting my parents in Clayton. I have yet to see another person on the trail and like Stonewall, has a remote wilderness feel, even though you aren't very far from the road. Like the description notes, the trail comes to a cross roads and doubles back on itself. To complete the loop (riding clockwise) veer to the left and go downhill. Jan 22, 2017
