Trail Information

Highlights

A short and scenic trail along Campbell Mountain, Forest Service Road 97 is one of many Forest Service roads in the Blue Ridge Ranger District of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Surrounded the entire way by sights and sounds of nature, there is a small clearing at the end perfect for a picnic or place to park while setting up camp for the night. Because of its close proximity to so many other trails and because it's slightly rougher than the average gravel road, this is an ideal trail to hit while out exploring for the day in the area.

The trail is quite overgrown and had to clear 2 downed trees out of the way, but otherwise in decent shape. Not very well used at all, really feels like your "out there"!

Explored this trail this past weekend. There are actually three trail branches that split off a few hundred feet in - one going to the picnic/camping area as shown in the pictures (straight), another heads down to the left toward the river and a third that goes up and to the right. The third right trail was blocked by a downed tree, but our map shows this heads to the top of a small hill above the camping area. Was pleasant, fairly easy and enjoyed cooking burgers at the turn-around at the end of the trail.

Tried to ride this trail today, but downed trees blocked the way. Will try again soon.
