Weather looks good for Gravel in the Cohutta Mountains, Saturday, March 16.

The route is 45 miles with 5000 ft climbing. Omitting the out and back to the fire tower on Grassy Mountain makes the route 39 miles and 4200 ft. Riders of all abilities are welcome.

The first eight miles warm up on pavement and the rest of the route is gravel including a short section of double and easy singletrack on one of the prettiest sections of the Pinhotti Trail. We will climb along Mill Creek, pass waterfalls, ride on a shelf road and stop at the largest tree in Georgia. The last five miles back to the car are fast and fun.

The ride starts at the Emery Creek Trailhead, Old CCC Rd., Chatsworth. Start time is flexible and more info will be posted later in the week.
