Thanks to the hard work of business owners and volunteers, Ellijay is a true mountain bike destination that you must visit. Ellijay continues to provide awesome trails and all the services a Mountain Biker might need, whether you are a beginner or advanced.
Work is being done to repair CCC Camp Road. In case you're not aware, the gravel road coming to Mulberry Gap from Eton washed out in December of 2015 when heavy rains hit our area for weeks on end.
There are currently three trail projects in the process and moving forward in the Ellijay area.
Aska trails at Campbell Camp Rd
Preston York from Flowmotion trail builders will be developing a concept for the area this month.
Preston York with Flowmotion has finished the Carter's Lake concept plan. It will soon be released and public meetings will be held to get feedback. The concept includes a 4 mile downhill, 5-6 miles to be re-done at Ridgeway with a possible connector to the Amadahy.
"Carters Lake is a huge opportunity for this area." -Terry Palmeri, IMBA Southeast Associate Regional Director.
The Talking Rock project
This will be 8 miles of single track. It will provide great trails for beginner riders. Bill Jones and Ken Nix are working to create a concept plan for this project.
While completion dates are still not firm on these projects, we know that they will be a big part of 2017 for mountain biking in this area.

SO.... #justbringyourbike to Ellijay!
