Description

Martin Branch Road is one of the more rustic forest roads - you'll appreciate having decent suspension on your mountain bike. It is usually closed to vehicle traffic, so you can enjoy a long, ripping descent without fear of oncoming traffic.

The last mile tracks Martin Branch, which feeds into the Chattahoochee River near the end of the trail at Chattahoochee River Road (FS 44).

This trail is the well-earned descent as part of the Upper 'Hooch Loop gravel grinder.
