A great afternoon ride destination along Middle Mountain and Hurricane Mountain on the Pinhoti.

Adopt These Trails!

Overview

Experience the beauty of the Pinhoti without having to ride the entire trail system. This loop takes you through Middle Mountain and a part of Hurricane Mountain, so you'll get in a long 1.5 mile climb to Middle Mountain. Then ride through some rocky sections on the ridge of Middle and Hurricane. This is an out and back route from base of Middle Mountain at Stover Creek.
Features: -none-

Description

At the Forest Service Road 207A, you'll start a 1.5 Mile Climb to Middle Mountain. This is a wide gravel road that is fairly packed down. Get into a steady pedal rhythm and you'll make it to the top without stopping.

At the top, take a breather and enjoy some of the fresh mountain air.
The FS road continues down to Swamp Creek. You'll take a right onto the singletrack of the Pinhoti. This is ridge of Middle Mountain. The trail is a little rocky, but if you can keep moving you'll ride over these rocks.

Ride along the ridge of Middle Mtn to a couple more miles to Hurricane. This is the kind of terrain the Snake racers endure for 34 miler / 17 miler routes. I have an appreciation of the skill and fitness of these riders.

History & Background

This is a local favorite mainly because it was one of the few places we could ride years ago. Now that we have Raisin Woods, Enterprise South, White Oak Mountain, 5-Points, Raccoon Mountain, etc., it has not gotten a much traffic, but we still love this trail. It's still a favorite because it offers a mixture of different challenges to all level of riders.

We have flagged a connector trail that will create a loop trail from Hurricane Mtn back to Forest Service Road 207. This connector trail will need review by the Forest Service. We expect this review late this year (2014).
