Hiking & Biking

 

If you enjoy hiking, you are sure to find something that will appeal to you.  Consider the ASKA Trails, a 17 mile hiking-mountain biking trail system in the Chattahoochee National Forest near Deep Gap on Aska Road in Blue Ridge with trails that range from 1 mile to 5 ½ miles long and vary in difficulty.   Just a short ride from Blue ridge is Ocoee Whitewater Center near Ducktown, Tennessee where you will find 20 miles of scenic hiking/ biking trails.  For beginners, you might want to try the Blue Ridge Lake Loop Trail, a short, scenic hike that follows the lake shoreline. In addition, there are numerous other trails that will take you to mountain vistas, or beautiful waterfalls, so you can decide the type of hike/ride that best suits you. The trails are open all year long, so what you see can often depend on the season.  The local Chamber of Commerce can provide you with trail maps and information on where to rent mountain bikes locally.
