Located a few miles east of Blairsville, in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Bridge Gap is a mid-level trail within the infamous Beasley Knob OHV Trail System. This trail will have you white-knuckling the steering wheel as you descend steep grades, maneuver through intense rock gardens, and pray you find a pull-out before meeting oncoming traffic. Whether you come for the rocks, the Jeep Badge of Honor designation, or just good off-road fun in the forests of north Georgia, Bridge Gap is a must-do trail.
Bridge Gap is a straight-through trail in the southeastmost corner of the Beasley Knob Trail System. Labeled as 93D, this trail can be run in either direction but is generally only 1-1.5 vehicles wide. The trail is deceptively steep and descends over 1,000 feet in the first 2 miles as it circles around the bottom of Jones Knob. The first half of the trail is mainly hard-packed soil with a few chunky rock sections no bigger than 14 inches. After passing 93F, the trail continues its steep descent and cuts a deep trench through the soil with towering clay walls on both sides of your vehicle. The walls are not the only thing you must avoid, as the trail surface is peppered with large, moving rocks the size of basketballs and beachballs and compacted by thick flat rocks the size of card tables. After leveling off and allowing you to catch your breath, the trail intersects with two other trails where you can choose to continue tackling more trails in the system or return to the trailhead.
This trail is best suited for modified vehicles with larger tires and skid plate protection.
