I haven't wheeled there but I'd like to check it out. I knew there was some wheeling place near Amicalola Falls but never been. I'd like to go though.

Sorry about the pics, the only ones I had that came out were of the Falls themselves. If you like to camp and backpack its a cool place with some wheeling involved, not bad though.

As far as the spots by Amacolola, I checked them out as well. Its a forestry road that goes to the Appalacian Approach trail, then branches out. The wheeling at the top had some rocks(I have a 2" BB and was able to tackle them) and some mud holes and was quite fun. The views from the top were really nice as well.

Ill download some pics with the trails I explored in a bit.

Tick are you familiar with this area? Im looking to ride somewhere this weekend with the wife and kid. I am about 1.5 hours away so if you are heading that way let me know what time and we could meet up and ride. I am not familiar with the area so if you do not know how to get there we will have to do some exploring.

I am familiar with this area. I have been on the Nimblewill Gap Rd trail that goes north of Amicalola and it then goes back down through the Amicalola Park. I was hoping that gotClay would respond and we could have a convoy, LOL. Hit me up with a PM and we will hook up tommorow anyway.

We are heading up around 1 and will be in the area around 2. There are a few ways to go in so I think we should meet at 2 outside Amicalola Falls park. There is a Burts Pumpkin farm about a mile south of the park entrance on ga 52. They have a big parking lot. I will be there at 1:45. It is about 30 min west of Dahlonega and 30 min south west of ellijay. You can call me at 404 731 4406 if you need help finding the place.

GOOD LUCK & GOD BLESS
