Everything You Ever Needed to Know about Dahlonega's Outdoor Sports

Dahlonega, Georgia. Photo credit: ugardener.
I receive emails regularly from people looking for the local scoop on what trails to ride, where to camp, and what to expect when the sender makes a trip to wherever it is.  Right now my region of expertise is North Georgia, since I'm living here at the moment.

Great stuff. Appreciate your site!

I'm a rider living in *the Northeast*. We are currently exploring an opportunity to relocate to the Dahlonega/Gainesville area.

We are avid outdoorsy folks. Our hobbies include trail running, mountain biking, hiking, road biking, canoeing, etc. Is there a good amount of mountain biking/trail running terrain around the Dahlonega area? We have been focusing on the professional side of things up until now, the jobs! So we haven't learned too much about the area yet. We really love to ride, hike and run and cannot imagine relocating to a place that does not offer great trails close to home. After finding your site I was hoping to ask you some questions.

Sorry to pester you. Any info you can provide is appreciated. Of course, if this is a bad time, I understand if you cannot reply.

Thanks for a great site,
