mulberry-gapWell, this is the last of my 20 suggestions!  I have enjoyed sharing these ideas with you.   I will always continue to write about all of the fun things to do in the mountains!! Don’t forget to keep up with our event calendar as well.  On Wednesdays of each week, I also write an article about all the events coming up for that weekend.  Many people have mentioned how helpful that has been to them.

My #20 idea involves the exhilarating sport of mountain biking.  The energy and exercise consumed on the various types of trails is amazing.  Many of the die hard mountain bike enthusiasts travel all over the world to ride a wide range of trails.  If you want to enjoy a true outdoor adventure of mountain biking on beautiful trails at all  times of the year, visit Gilmer County‘s Mulberry Gap, a unique North Georgia Mountain get-away!

Located 12 miles from downtown Ellijay, Mulberry Gap offers a multitude of trails to choose from including the famous Pinhoti trail system.  There is a full service campground here or you can stay in one of their sleeping cabins.  They offer most everything you need from hot showers, fabulous food, a recreation room to hang out in, an EMT on staff 24/7, tools in case your bike is in need of repair, wifi and they can even arrange a massage for you!  The only thing you really need to bring is yourself and your bike.

So, all of you beginner to advanced bike riders, you should head to this best kept secret in the beautiful Chattahoochee National Forest of the North Georgia Mountains.  I know you will find it relaxing, the trails challenging and the facilities very acccomodating.  If you missed my other ideas, check them out.  There is still plenty of summer left so head on out to the mountains and enjoy yourself!
