N. GA MTN Overland /trail ride June

Postby egagnon086 » Wed May 17, 2017 4:21 pm

Hey everybody,

I’d like see if anyone is up for a small off-road expedition, details below. We did a similar trip earlier this year and had a blast. There are pics/vids here: spring run

I would imagine we want to make the most of the day, so meeting in Dahlonega/Suches @ 9am or so. I'm in Athens and can meet in Pendergrass if anyone wants to ride along.

If you can’t take your vehicle, but still want to go and just say so, one of us will likely have extra room. If you know anyone else that may want to go, they are more than welcome.

Let me know if you have any questions, or if you want to recommend a trail you know that’s nearby to the Blairsville area.

There are several decent videos on youtube of Flatlands rd (GA FS-637), its pretty technical/ off camber sections and has water crossings, in all these trails there is a possibly of trail damage if you goof up. But with enough people it should be a fun outing with decent spotters around.

Run down:
1. Meet near or Suches/Dahlonega (129 hwy) to Suches via Nimblewell and Canada creek.
2. Canada creek may need some trail repair so bring shovel/pick/chainsaw. Then to flatlands (FS-637) we can decide whether we go up or down, either way its a challenge.
3. Flatlands leads to Cooper creek WMA so there are a lot of roads there or we can loop around.

I'd like to plan ahead and maybe we can bring lunch and a camp stove like last time and eat on route instead of having to grab lunch somewhere. It definitely added to the trip last time.

I'm thinking the first or 2nd weekend in June. Let me know what your schedule is.
