Horseback Riding Trails in Murray County North Georgia Mountains

Iron Mountain Trail

Beginning at the Cottonwood Patch camping area, the trail fords the Conasauga River and passes through grassy wildlife clearing as it gradually ascends to a forest opening for a spectacular view of the rugged Cohutta Mountains. The trail continues over rolling terrain t its end on Forest Service Road 1.

Directions: Take US 411 north from Chatsworth and go 12.3 miles to Cisco. Turn right onto Old GA 2 and proceed 8.1 miles to the trailhead in the Cottonwood Patch camping area.

Sumac Creek Trail

The long distance double loop trail offers both the challenge of steep ascents and descents and the ease of flat double track travel. From high, narrow ridge lines, trail users will drop into the rugged Sumac Creek drainage three times. 12.5 miles.

Directions: Take US 411 north from Chatsworth and go 12.3 miles to Cisco. Turn right onto Old GA 2 and proceed 3.2 miles. Turn right onto Forest Service Road 17 and travel 2.1 miles to the trailhead parking area.
