Dry: The main (old) trail is clear of leaves and a reroute avoids the downed tree. Connector trail has lots of leaves though. History

Getting forecast...

A great trail for some heart racing fun.

Overview

Helmets required for cyclists
Selma will keep you on the edge of your seat for the whole ride. It features fast-flowing downhills, a couple of steep uphills, and a few riverbed crossings.
Family Friendly: Hike the short 0.75 mile connector trail or continue on to Bill's cut through for a 2.5 mile hike and see some awesome hardwoods, spring and fall flowers and beautiful creeks.
Dogs: Off-leash

Description

The new out and back connector trail to the new trailhead at the intersection of Vinson Hwy and Laying Farm Road adds about 1.5 miles to the total loop, giving you 6.5 miles, about 1000' of climbing and one of the best workouts Middle Georgia can offer. There is a rocky switchback towards the end of the trail and you may have to walk, as well as a couple of epic tree root sections. Spring through fall brings lots of wild flowering plants including Trout Lilies, native Azalea's, Trillium, Verbena, Purple Aster, Gentian and Indian Pink, all providing lots of color (if you can see it through your blurred vision from the heart pumping trail ride). These trails bring as many hikers as riders, so come out and enjoy them which ever way you are most comfortable with. Please note, the stats shown on MTB Project for this trail are not accurate. With the out and back from/to the new trailhead, you are looking at approximately 7 miles with 1,080' of climb. There are a number of climbs that are over 18% grades too.

Leaf coverage made the trail loose. Very fast. Every uphill was rewarded with a superb downhill. Hike in many sections with my entry level bike/skill. 6.5mi
