Ya I've been. I live in Melbourne, FL right now and go to Florida tech for school.

It sure does!

Thats awesome as I was hoping to stay closer by so I can hit Helen, GA for some german food (and beer) for dinner.

Anyone have any tips for me? Where to enter, sights worth stopping and getting out for? What about maps (paper, pdf, or mobile app)?

Everyone is welcome to join us, we sure would welcome local experience on the trail. Got a CB and will be on channel 4 as usual.

I kinda thought it would be, with the early spring weather we have had. I live up here, not sure where or what ill be doing Saturday or Sunday yet, and just a word of caution, they will close it at the first sign of rain, so no matter what the website says you still need to call the day before and maybe even that morning.

As far as the entrance goes, there are 2 sides of the mountain, better riding (at least closer) will be from the Windy Hill Rd entrance closer to town. No worries though, you really cant get lost, it all loops back into other trails now. The only trail you will need to stay away from is 93B, its no joke, they went in with excavators and moved alot of good size rock in. You can go part of the way, but when it gets steep you will prob have to turn around. My cell is on here if you get lost or fouled up, I should be close. I actually need to shake my rig down real fast so let me know what time you plan on going and I may try to ride up for a few.

Thanks again for all the info. I do love to eat and drink.

@Jeeptrk I think our goal is to be to the trail by 10am or slightly after so we have a solid day to crawl around and still have time to hit Helen for dinner. I'll PM you my mobile number, text me if you think you will be around. Anyone else interested PM me and i'll do the same.

Do you think they would close it if it rained a bit the day before? Its forecasted to rain for the first half of Saturday but not on Sunday.

Also how is cell coverage up there around Beasley, should I expect no service? I have T-Mobile which generally doesn't have service in populated areas so not expecting any.

Damn so you think it's totally out of the question from a half days rain the morning before? The Tennessee AOP is plan B but 4 hours to and from and a solid tank of gas later is less desirable
