The Darnell Creek Horse Trail is a singletrack trail in the Chattaoochee / Oconee National Forest. It is a figure eight loop.
The trail is open, but not fully maintained.
Trail maintenance has started in the April 2017. The track had to be re-routed slightly and no longer crests the Oakey Mountain summit. Additional work is planned in the fall of 2017.
