    Totally. Rode a section today and have been on it a few times this year.

    I'm far from the Pinhoti expert but it depends on if you're looking for a loop, out/back, or have shuttle as an option. A great loop is Bear Creek/P1/P2 near Ellijay. The Snake Creek sections near Dalton are no joke but you'd either shuttle or O/B them. Call the guys at Bear Creek Bikes in Dalton. Trail runs right by their shop and they know their stuff.

    Sweet! I'm XC guy who loves chunk so anything loop or O/B you can provide would awesome. We have like 3ft+ of snow on the ground here, so I have been on the trainer 8-12 hours week and need to get out.

    I rode the snake creek gap section today. It was in great shape. It was a little muddy the weekend before but it has dried out a lot.

    I picked up on this thread so thought I'd offer the services of Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way. We are located in the midst of the Bear Creek, Pinhoti 1,2 3 trails. We offer shuttle services or you can ride out of Mulberry Gap to all of those trails. We offer lodging, camping, great home cooked meals, hot tubs and take good care of our northern friends who come down to escape the cold and snow. www.mulberrygap.com There are many other trails we can refer you to depending on how many days you have to ride. Let us know if we can help you plan a trip.

    Mulberry Gap is probably one of the best overall one of the best mountain biking experiences one could have. It's like a kids camp for grown ups with bikes and awesome trails. Two things that should be done when heading up there is going to Mulberry gap and visiting Cartecay bike shop.

    We've heard that expression so many times - we need to put it on our web site. Of course if a person's childhood camp experience was traumatic, it might not send the best message! But you are right, that sums it up very well!
