3 of the Top North Georgia Mountain Biking Trails
Yellow River Loops
If you are new to North Georgia mountain biking, try the Yellow River Loops. Both the Yellow River’s Creek Loop and the River Loop in Yellow River Park are good for beginners. The former begins with a mile uphill, then descends on a terraced single-track, presenting some rocky challenges. The latter is a bit milder and is great for enjoying the scenic vistas.
Bull Mountain Loop
This 11-mile North Georgia mountain biking trail is known for its changes in elevation. Although it’s located near Dahlonega, GA, the outer reaches of the loop tend to feel quite remote. This makes for a peaceful ride… if you consider zooming down the mountain at high speeds while avoiding rocks and riding through rhododendron tunnels peaceful. Either way, riding this trail is usually a wonderful experience!
Unicoi State Park Mountain Bike Trail
The Unicoi State Park Mountain Bike Trail is for advanced riders. The scenery is beautiful, and the track is built on an old road. However, make no mistake. This North Georgia mountain biking trail is designed as a NORBA (National Off-Road Bicycle Association) race course, and is very challenging.
