Trail Information

Highlights

If you're looking to get lost in the woods, look no further than West Skeenah Road. Situated just north of Suches, Georgia, this long and winding road is part of the ever-popular Georgia Traverse - a 390-mile route with 225 miles of unpaved surfaces. Nothing but curves, this easy but scenic trail might make you feel like your on a slow-moving roller coaster in a sea of green far from civilization. Following the base of Wilscot and Deadenenn Mountains, this road connects Highway 60 to Skeenah Gap Road while crossing over numerous creeks including Woody Branch, Pigeon Creek, ​and Skeenah Creek. So whether your following along the Georgia Traverse, looking for a secluded camping spot, or just looking to get away from it all, check out West Skeenah Road.

I hit West Skeenah this morning. (East to west) Description is accurate. On a nice dry day 2WD is sufficient, you definitely need a vehicle with good clearance. If the trail is wet, there are a few spots that will get a little slippery. All in all it was a good, I will be back in the fall and winter for the great colors and view. Not much to see in the summer. The road is clear but hd a couple trees leaned over that could give a little pucker. And the well thing on the west TH is cool.

My local off-road club hit this trail as part of overlanding some of the GA Traverse on a weekend trip. A very nice trail with many beautiful sights. Still wondering what the 'water' thing is on the west entrance. We believe it to be some sort of fountain or watering hole but not sure. Note: One of the members pulled a 10ft trailer through here fine.

Long winding trail, easy ride if dry but can get very muddy in wet conditions! Beware! All camping areas open this day. Really nice straight through route that doesn't get much attention or traffic. Anyone know what this thing is in the woods near the western trailhead?

A nice cut-through road. Easy when dry, but after rains there are some mud holes. Someone had recently cleared downed trees, otherwise the trail would have been blocked.

Would've liked more of a challenge, but a great trail.
