I-85N to I-985, Exit 16-Oakwood/Dawsonville. Take a left/west off the exit ramp. Immediately turn right/north at the stoplight onto Frontage Road. Follow the little brown signs to Elachee Nature Center. There is a bike parking lot past the golf course.

Miles of wooded singletrack trails. Most of the climbs are fairly gradual and there's one big stream crossing. Watch out for mountain bikers!

Review: 20 miles of MTB trails, plus another 7 miles of hiking only across the interstate at Elatchee Nature Center. The trails are flat to rolling hills. There are 2 trail heads (tortoise and coyote, app. 2 1/2 miles each) at the parking lot. Tortoise leads to the remainder of the trails. Very smooth trails with only a few rocks and roots. Elatchee trails across the interstate have lots of rocks and roots everywhere. There are a series of smaller trails towards the front, and a 4.5 mile loop to the back of the park.

Review: This are some really good trails. Mostly singletracks. Gradual hills but enough to make you work for it. There are a number of different loops but there are maps and signs out on the trials. A lot of fun!
