Located in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Nelson Cove is one of the more difficult trails within the Beasley Knob OHV Trail System. Deep trenches, steep climbs, and sticky mud holes await those brave enough to attempt the drive. Spinning tires and roaring engines will leave mud splattered across windows like abstract art. With perseverance, determination, and in some cases, a little luck, you can conquer this trail and proudly earn a portion of the Badge of Honor designation. Combine trail 93G with several others in the network to fully complete the Jeep Badge of Honor.
Nelson Cove is a straight-through, U-shaped trail that ends not far from where you started. This 2.7-mile-long trail closely resembles the story of Jekyll and Hyde. The northern half and the southern half couldn't be more different. The northern half of the trail is a relentless onslaught of steep hills and treacle-like mud holes smothered in burnt orange clay that wraps itself around your tires like a stubborn lover. Be prepared for body damage at the first obstacle, as it leans your vehicle extremely hard into a dirt berm with tree roots sticking out. As you continue traveling west towards the top of Beasley Knob, a heavy right foot, good wheel speed, and aggressive mud terrain tires will be needed. As the trail makes a slow, 180-degree turn back toward the east, you begin your drive along the southern half of the trail, where you find yourself suddenly driving down a hard-packed, smooth, and well-maintained dirt road as if being teleported to an entirely different trail. If attempting this trail in its entirety, be sure to have a winch and a buddy. This trail is best suited for modified vehicles with larger tires and skid plates. Lockers will be extremely useful in aiding traction if the terrain is holding any moisture.
