New (hopefully legal) trails
 
I'm going out this weekend to scout some spots. Redwine Cove (dalton), Bear Creek & Rich Mtn (Ellijay) and Blood Mtn. Don't know if I'll get to all 3. Just depends how good they are. I'll come back with the scouting report.

Are you going with a buddy? Don't get stuck again. ;)

Michigunman 03-13-2013 04:26 PM

And hopefully we can clear up the "hopefully" :thumb:.

You're a brave soul! So Rich Mtn didn't get shut down?

I'm used to hikiing in and camping alone. Jeeping I'm gonna be REAL cautious and wimp out if I need to. I've got some good leads close to Ellihay so I might not make it to Blood Mtn and I'll try that another weekend.

I don't know what I'll get so I didn't throw an invite on the forum but anyone is welcomed company. Im used to bein alone on the trail. Jeeping just needs different gear. I'm gonna keep it pretty tame and look for private property signs in some of the places local boys are recommending. My worst case scenario is a 1 day hike on Springer Mtn. Could be worse. If you got nothin to do this weekend...

Nice. That is an awesome view. Does the trail go over the top of the Mtn from the south side or west side. Looks like there are trails both ways.

I'll try to find out. It looks like there are enough side trails that you could do some in outs

The most recent document I found for the USDA forestry dept shows it being open from March 15 to May 15.

Not much of a window, but we'll take it! It's a place to ride that's fairly close.

Rich Mountain IS shut down. So...there are some FSR that parallel the Duncan Bridge Trail just west of Vogel State Park. That's the new plan.

I got an app on my iPhone called ramblr I'll try to get the trip posted to their website when I get back.

Any body else riding this weekend? Should be nice.

Wouldn't mind tagging along with anybody going out this weekend. Got a new set of Nitto's I'd like to break in.

Sorry I missed you. I left Saturday afrernoon

jkdreams 03-17-2013 04:27 PM

VICTORY!!!! Thy name is Duncan Ridge Road.

Great FSR trails. All totally legal. Great scenery. Found some awesome campsites and some fun side trails. There's also some hiking (AT and a waterfall). I'll get some pix up soon.

Upside. These roads were made for jeeps.
Downside. It's one hour north of Dahlonega.

Questions welcome.

Here's the link for the ramblr app. It tracks the whole thing on GPS. Some vids can be seen on my YouTube page.

Spoiler alert! You will never be done with your jeep, especially if you keep going Offroad.

Where do you enter? Off Wolf Pen gap or ? Looks like it's near Suches.
