Description

This short but steep singletrack trail starts at the Ocoee Gorge parking area and finishes on Number 3 Dam Road. It is commonly ridden to connect Brush Creek with the rest of the Tanasi Trail network.

The trail begins at the southern tip of the Ocoee Gorge parking area, which is approximately 1.7 miles south of the Ocoee Whitewater Center on Highway 64.

Boyd Gap descends steeply as you travel east to west, or climbs if you are riding it the opposite direction. There are a couple tight switchback corners and a lot of fun turns on relatively smooth dirt.

This trail is a key part of the famous Black Bear Rampage 40 mile race course as it's climbed near the end of the race.
