    Good job! Mulberry Gap

    We made a good choice to go down
    here
    this past weekend, the trails are in excellent shape. We got in 70 miles and this place really caters to Mountain bikers. I'm heading back soon - its the bestest way to get a singletrack fix this time of year The meals and accomodations were top notch.The Pinhoti trail runs right through this area and we rode right out of the camp for most of our rides.

    I am going to try to talk my wife into doing this for an anniversary weekend this year. Is there a place to securly lock up the kids so I do not need to get them a baby sitter or drop them off at the Grand Parents?

    I could not have said it any better. Except maybe that between the waffles, pan cakes, brownies, home made meatballs, fresh chicken and eggs I will try to resist a little bit of all that temptation. On second thought the heck with that it just gives me another reason to ride more.

    I went with a couple buddies back in April. We chose to camp versus staying in the cabins. The weather was perfect, the trails were challenging, but crazy fun. The food - INCREDIBLE. Mrs. Diana and the rest of the Mulberry crew are amazingly hospitable. The facilities were superb. The energy there couldn't have been better. I can't wait to go back. I'm predicting Sept 30-Oct 2. This time hopefully on a 2011 Gary Fisher COBIA, compared to a Trek 3500 in April.

    To anyone else thinking of bringing a wife or girlfriend, I'll let you know mine would shoot me dead if I drug her out there. She's a wimp when it comes to long climbs and would not find the trip very relaxing. I haven't broken her into the offroad scene yet. Gotta build up to the Pinhoti. She could definitely use some improvement in the coordination department, which could mean life or death out there, ha!

    Not a good idea.. you go out to ride while the two of them plot your demise.

    Nice bump of an old thread
    This place
    has great energy. Its a mountain bikers perfect get-a-way!
    I would recommend buying the "Good map" when you get there.
    No talk of closing trails to bikes in these woods.

    My parents live about 15-20 min. away. Will be making a Thanksgiving trip down there to ride and get free babysitting. Let me know if you wanna join.... Such a fun place to pedal, or get a shuttle in the limo.

    Sept is open except for the US Nationals wkd at Beech, then a buddy is getting married on the first weekend of Oct. I know he wants to go too. Maybe early Sept or mid Oct.

    Either way, will do.

    Of course you don't need to work around my schedule. But here it is:
    9/3 Shanandoa 100
    9/11 Black Bear
    10/1 Stage Race
    10/29 Double Dare
    11/6 Swank 65
    Sometime in Nov would be best for me. Keep me in the and I may be able to make it at least one night.

    Dang Pat - That's about $1,000 worth of entry fees. I hope you have a good sponsor!

    Um, if you are wanting an excuse to go to Mulberry Gap you guys could always just sign up for the TNGA - Trans North Georgia Mountain Bike Adventure . Stay there Friday night before you start and then after you finish. And stop in at the half way point! The price is right as well!
