Trail Overview

This trail is less maintained than the other trails in the area. There are some places with deep ruts and one place that is off-camber that we marked with 18 degrees of roll. I would recommend airing down to smooth out the ride although it is not necessary to complete the trail. We drove this trail in the rain which creates some large puddles but none that caused any issues. I am marking the trail as gravel but when it is raining it is mostly mud. There are a few places for great views along the trail but you would mostly see those in the winter when the trees are bare. We had spotty cell service along the trail (Verizon). This trail is part of the Georgia Traverse trail which is a bunch of trails that are strung together to make up a large, mostly offroad, drive across Georgia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwHllfWVLbk

Difficulty

As you know, trail difficulty is subjective and largely due to experience and rig setup. This trail is not difficult but is rough in places. You will need some clearance to get over some of the ruts. There is one place that goes down a hill that is rutted out where we marked the pitch at 9 degrees and the roll at 18 degrees. We have a Jeep Gladiator with 33" tires and no lift and we made it without trouble.
