Bear Creek Professional Review and Guide
"The Gennet Brothers decision to spare a tulip popular, during the Depression, from the teeth of their crosscut saw resulted in another record. The Gennett Poplar, sporting an 18-foot girth at the bottom, is the most remarkable feature (among many) found on the 2.5-mile out-and-back singletrack (5 miles total) and the two loops (3-mile singletrack, plus a 7-miler, which uses some doubletrack). The Atlanta REI restored this singletrack in a 1992 project, with help from its many friends. Save some extra time to ride up to Potatopatch Mountain for the wide view of the Cohuttas; Bear Creek is one of the oldest official mountain bike trails in Georgia."
