Black Branch Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"There are few, if any, rides prettier than this five-and-a-half-mile loop. Over four miles of rolling singletrack are connected by a short piece of lightly graveled forest service road. For those wishing to get an extremely taxing aerobic workout, take this trail clockwise. However, riding it counterclockwise still gives you all the workout you need and then some. Wildlife sightings are among the biggest thrills you'll experience in this section of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Along with frequent observations of deer and turkeys moving through the thick summer eruptions of ferns and wildflowers, other less common animals may be seen. This trail is one of four individual trails in the immediate area."
