Mountain Biking Georgia
by Alex Nutt (Falcon Guides)
Just as Flat Creek isn’t flat, Long Branch Loop isn’t long. The trail has the distinction of being in the middle of several more difficult trails in the immediate vicinity. Because the terrain dictates so much of a trail’s difficulty, it’s unusual to find an easy trail so close to more difficult ones. Here’s a great place to introduce someone to dirt. The trail is easy, relatively flat, and can be ridden many times or used as a warm-up for more difficult trails. If you’re feeling a little stronger, ride up the Green Mountain connector trail the half mile or so to the Green Mountain Trail. It’s all downhill on the way back. Tread: 2.3 miles on old roadbed and doubletrack.
Off The Beaten Track Volume III: A Guide to Mountain Biking in North Georgia

The first half of this loop follows an old skid road through a timber cut (read: hot and exposed on a sunny summer day, muddy when wet). After crossing the creek, you'll tunnel through shady rhododendron and hop over a few waterbars before a short hill climb back to the beginning of the loop. Highlights: Views, stream crossing, waterbars, briar and mud potential, connects to Green Mountain Trail
