#1 – Buck Bald Trail
Outside of riding at the Ocoee Whitewater Center, Buck Bald is one of our most beginner friendly rides. From the top of Buck Bald Mountain, riders will experience 360 degree panoramic views from its bald peak. After admiring the breathtaking views of Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina from atop, its time to descend the mountain down to the banks of the Hiwassee River. This ride is nearly 6 miles of continuous downhill cruising.

#2 – Brush Creek and Old Copper Road Trail
A historic 2.3 mile scenic ride along the banks of the Upper Ocoee River. Begins at the Ocoee Whitewater Center and ends at the Upper Ocoee rafting access road. Ride the loop for a great 4.5 mile trip. Easy-to-moderate riding suitable for novices.

#3 – Tanasi Trail System
The first ten miles of a series of 43 miles of trail developed by the USDA Forest Service as a legacy from the 1996 Olympic whitewater competition. Starts at the Ocoee Whitewater Center and climbs up the mountain, adjacent to the Big Frog Wilderness area.

#4 – Chilhowee Mountain Trails
Fun for beginners and experts alike with fast narrow singletrack and screaming downhill or (gut-wrenching uphill) sections, whoop-de-doos, and creek crossings. Great waterfalls to play and take a cool break.

#5 – Conasauga River Trails
Conasauga River Trail and Iron Mountain Trail form a 10 mile wilderness loop complete with river crossing. Four miles of the trail follow an old railroad bed along the banks of the wild and scenic Conasauga River. It then crosses the river and climbs Iron Mountain with views of the North Georgia mountains. Moderate to strenuous.
