River Loop mountain bike trail

River Loop mountain bike trail

The River Loop is a 3.4-mile, intermediate/advanced trail just below the Red & White that follows the Cartecay River in sections. The single track is tight in spots, a few rocky descents challenge even the bravest riders to walk, a sand trap swallows your tires near the river, and an occasional windblown tree clutters the trail. Once you conquer the steep downhill, you can cool down with a dip in the Cartecay River or nap in the sun on the rocks. This is a beautiful ride, and it can easily be coupled with a ride on the Red & White or other trails in the area to make a full day of riding.



Travel east on Highway 52 going away from Ellijay. Approximately 4 miles outside the city, turn right on Mulkey Road and then right again into the Rich Mountain Wildlife Area. You will need to park your car and ride a short distance to the trail heads.
