Hiking/Biking Trails

Beginning as a multi-purpose woods
road, the trail eventually changes to a
narrow, steep pathway as it climbs 2000
feet to the top of Grassy Mountain,
ending at an upper trailhead on Forest
Service Road 68. Extremely fast and
technical ride. Much of the trail is steep,
narrow and rocky.
Directions: Take US 411 north from
Chatsworth for 4 miles. Turn right (east)
at the traffic light in Eton and go about
4.3 miles. Turn left on Forest Service
Road 218 (Muskrat Road) and travel 3
miles to the lower trailhead.
Windy Gap Cycle Trail - 5 miles

Suitable for hiking, horses & mountain
bicycles. This 12.5 miles double-loop
trail offer both the challenge of steep
ascents and descents, and the ease of
flat double-track travel. From high,
narrow ridge lines, trail users will drop
into the rugged Sumac Creek drainage
three times. Caution: The northern
segment of the trail follows a gravel
road that is open to vehicles. Watch
for vehicles.
Directions: Take US 411/GA north
from Chatsworth and go 12.3 miles to
Cisco. Turn right onto old GA Highway
2 and travel 3.2 miles. Turn right onto
Forest Service Road 17 and go about
2.1 miles to the trailhead parking lot.
Sumac Creek Multi-User Trail
Note: Trail access has been moved to a new location between Wildacre &
Dennis Mill (less than 1/2 mile from each location). A new parking lot is being
constructed spring 2009. The Pinhoti connects to the Appalachian Trail at
Benton McKaye. The above link will take you to the GA Pinhoti Trail
Association web site.
