Trail Information


Spanning the ridge across the Coopers Creek Wildlife Management Area, just north of Suches, Georgia, lies Duncan Ridge Road. This scenic mountain trail overlooks the valley to the south and runs the ridges of several mountains such as Wildcat Knob, Coosa Bald and Buckeye Knob. With access to four popular hiking trails - Duncan Ridge Trail, Coosa Backcountry Trail, Yellow Mountain Trail and Shope Gap Trail - and some good secluded camping areas, Duncan Ridge Road is a great addition to any trip through the mountains.

Fun LONG trail. No obstacles but steep spots and some slick spots making 4WD necessary in anything but the driest of conditions. Still an easy, beautiful scenic ride.

Trail was great. Definitely needed 4 wheel drive to do it in spots due to mud and slippery rock, but still quite easy. All stock willys had no issues. Very pretty fog and views through the fog. We did have to turn around, however, we got 7.2 miles in each way and enjoyed it. Great way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon. Worth the trip.

Visited today. Sign out front that 7.2 miles in the trail is closed and it was. We turned around and headed back out. Sign said no through traffic until March 15th. You could drive to most of the camp sites and view points just not all the way though. Trail was an easy ride. A few puddles to drive through but no reason for 4 wheel drive.

Super easy Trail. Pretty long, and decent ground clearance is recommended for preparation of adverse conditions. Super scenic, but definitely a trail to plan for as it is one of the longer trails in GA. Nevertheless, it’s one of my defaults for trailing. During the winter months, you will need AWD or 4wd. It runs the gambit of Ridges in the area so it tends to have more snow than the surrounding area.

Good ride, very scenic with no leaves on the trees. Long ride! Road in good shape but there were many snowy/icy patches. 4WD only in due to snow/ice but trail in good shape so 2WD with ground clearance under dry conditions.
