A quote from an article in Dirt Rag: While I don’t want to overstate this, these [Athens] trails are truly outstanding on many levels. Their layout and construction are top notch, and they traverse a landscape studded with beautiful cliffs, coves, and rock formations. There are high ridges, deep ravines, and impressive lake and valley views. The singletrack is fast and flowing and at times rocky and tricky-technical. You will never be bored there.
