A nice selection of trail with good tough climbs and some fun flowy downs.

Overview [Suggest Changes]

Be sure to go to the Cohutta Springs front office to sign in and get a vehicle tag before riding here.
This is an approachable five-mile loop that's doable by beginner or intermediate riders. There are nice views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The tread can be a little interesting as the trail crosses areas of broken granite, some portions are solid and others are more like kitty litter.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Off-leash

Description [Suggest Changes]

This ride has lots of pines that you'll ride through. There are some areas that are a little rocky with slate. Maps are available at the Cohutta Springs info/check in center for free. They are very nice and helpful in directing you which place to start your ride.

There is some good challenging climbing but there is also some very fun singletrack flowing downs. There are a couple of challenging climbs that are very steep. Depending on what shape you're in, you may be able to clean them or you may have to hike-a-bike. It is a beautiful, fun trail with lots of views of the lake and of the nearby Georgia mountains.

These trails are similar to what you would see out west in New Mexico or Colorado, with pine cones, dry loose slate rock, good climbs and fast downs.
