Mountain Biking

Blue Ridge has some great mountain biking trails in North Georgia for the beginner and more rugged terrain for the experienced riders. The 2 most popular mountain biking trails are the Aska trails and South Fork Trail and Loop ride in the nearby Cohutta national forest just west of Blue Ridge. These are also incredible Blue Ridge hiking trails.

The trails at Aska are the older of the two and mostly singletrack, which requires more concentration for some of the higher elevation trails. These Aska trails were previously hiking trails that were opened up for biking. The Stanley Gap trail is very tight near the top of Rocky Mountain and can be even more challenging if there is some winter snow on the ground like earlier this week. But hey most mountain bikers live for singletrack, so you`ll love the challenge and can relax in the hot tub when you return to your mountain cabin retreat! The 2 major Aska trails are Deep Gap on Aska Road and Stanley Gap on Stanley Creek Road, which runs between the two if you have the energy and time.

In addition to the hardcore mountain biking trails, there is a short 2.3-mile beginner trail called Turkey Farm Loop just across the road. The Turkey Farm Loop is longer but is mostly a gravel trail along the Forest Service roads.

Rafting & Tubing

Enjoy an extreme adventure on the Ocoee River. The Ocoee River was the site of the 1996 Olympic Whitewater competitions. Come and feel the heart-pounding excitement while rushing down the same sections that the pros were on. There are Class I rapids and all the way up to Class V rapids, all in the same adventure. Rafting the Ocoee River is a true experience only found in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Ocoee River sees over 250,000 people per year, so make your reservations early!!
