Are you looking for an incredible singletrack vacation?

How about breaking away from your local blown-out trails to ride on some of the best, most lush trails in the Southern Appalachians? We created this camp to showcase the epic trails that surround Mulberry Gap in Ellijay, Georgia.  In addition to our traditional skills instruction, each day will give you a great taste of what riding in the Blue Ridge area is all about… beautiful scenery, challenging climbs and huge, tree-lined descents that flow for miles. There is really nothing else like this trail system and it should be on everyone’s mountain bike bucket list.

But don’t just take our word for it!

Mountain Bike Action Magazine has this to say about the trails in Ellijay: “Spectacular! The place is loaded with fun and flow single track with mostly reasonable climbs and fast descents. Trails are beginner friendly but far from boring for expert riders. Extensive tree coverage provides shade and deflection of the rain. These are the greenest, lushest forests we have ever had the pleasure to ride in (beating out Oregon’s King-Castle Trail for the honor). In the cooler months of fall, the trees shed their leaves to let the sun warm the trails.”

The trails aren’t the only drool-worthy reason to come.

The cabins at Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way are also out of this world.  This unique, family-owned and operated mountain bike base camp is set on a beautiful terraced plot of land in the Appalachian forest, surrounded by old-growth trees. According to Dirt Rag Magazine, the proprietors “get” mountain bikers and “cater to bikers’ needs with features such as never-ending plates of home cooked meals, hot showers, hot tubs, bike wash, rec room, laundry room, wi-fi and a camp store with bike goods and a nice craft beer selection.” It’s all about pre-ride breakfast, top-notch singletrack, and  post-ride experience. Um… did you hear the part about the hot tubs?!
