More than 100 miles of single-track mountain biking trails have earned Gilmer County the official designation as Georgia’s “Mountain Biking Capital.” And there is no off season for mountain biking here. Our trail systems are maintained year-round by a large group of volunteers from the Ellijay Mountain Bike Association. Ask the folks at the Cartecay Bike Shop or Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-a-Way to point you toward the Carter’s Lake Trails, a lung-busting, 5.6-mile, roller coaster of a ride that winds through the Ridgeway Recreation Area. For a longer ride, pick up a trail map for the 12-mile ride at Stanley Gap or a slightly technical single-track ride at Bear Creek.
