    2 Days in Ellijay, How would plan your trip?

    What trails would you hit and in what order. Looking for the greatest bang for the time spent there. Ist timer - I have read up on most of the trail and understand there is a great bike shop in town with an abundance of knowledge. But, What do the riders say. Will be in Ellijay this weekend 3/17 - 3/19. THANKS!

    Dirtman - Enjoy the mountains. I'm headed your way to the beach Saturday or I'd tag along with ya.

    - start here The local SORBA group has maps and trail descriptions on their site. Cartecay bike shop should be your first stop when you get to town. They are a great resource for the local trails.

    For a better response post your question on the SORBA forum
    Nothing to see here.

    What Up Ssinga!

    Good to hear from ya.Yeah heading to the Mtns for a Bday retreat. Just hit 42 yrs old. Other than that, all is well! I think I will stop by the bike shop 1st - becasue there is so much info on the trails - I do not want to get back home to hear, "Man, you should have ridden here or there". I want to play like the locals.
    Hey, enjoy your trip down and the beaches! It will be a beautiful weekend here! I will try to catch up wit cha on a future trip up that way.

    I would contact Cartecay and line up a tour guid for the Pinhoti at Bear Creek for day one for sure. I would then ride the Pinhoti again on day 2 on my own. If you really want to ride a different trail on day 2 I think I'd go to Fort Mountain.
