    Bikepacking in north GA

    Hoping to find some bikepacking opportunities in the Gainesville/Dahlonega area this next year. Ideally lots of smooth trail and some gravel roads, with primitive camping spots here and there. Getting out there as a non-local is sort of daunting, as I just moved here not long ago. Anyone 'round here have first-hand experience bikepacking north GA?

    Thanks!

    Check out the bull mountain area. Also, check out the Trans North Georgia ride. It would be tough but I know people who have bike packed it in less than a week. Also, you might be able to stay in a motel if you can time some of the towns along that route. Also Mulberry Gap is a great stay over. My 2 cents. Good luck and have fun.

    Just stumbled across the Mulberry Gap website. I'll check out the Bull Mtn area, too. Thanks!
