Biking in Blue Ridge and Fannin County
Varied and exciting routes in the mountains of North Georgia

The biking trails of Fannin County include some of the most varied and exciting routes in all of North Georgia. Two-lane paved roads, Forest Service all weather gravel roads and single track wind throughout our area. This guide shows access points. Plan your ride with supplemental info from the Welcome Center, books, bike shops and the web. Start with good maps and great advice from locals. A good place to start is our great local bike shop, Cycle South in downtown Blue Ridge at 544 E. Main Street, 706-632-3533.

A Word to the Wise … Highway biking along Hwy 5 is very dangerous, as is biking along curvy 2-lane mountain roads like Hwy 2 and Aska Road. Plan your routes accordingly. Respect private property and trails marked hiking only (BMT and AT especially). If biking in the mountains, be prepared for wilderness and carry the 10 Essentials (wiki or Google it). Also see the USFS web site at www.fs.fed.us/conf/ for current info and trail conditions. The law of the forest is "leave no trace." See www.LNT.org for info. Please pack in all you will need and pack out all your trash. Use good judgement when biking, and do not exceed your capabilites, level of fitness or knowledge of the area. Wear a brightly colored vest, and stay constantly aware of traffic behind and in front of you, and ride single file, especially if you are biking with kids. For more information, gear and bike rentals, visit Cycle South and Blue Ridge Mountain Outfitters in downtown Blue Ridge. For great advice by locals, visit the Fannin County Chamber & Welcome Center.
