Mr McBride's 8/30 Group Ride - The Trail of Tears Loop

Trail of Tears Loop:

This group ride starts and ends at Rider’s Hill in Dahlonega, Ga and is 224 miles long. This ride will take approximately 6 hours and 56 minutes to complete, excluding any stops.

Here is a map of the route. You can download the route here ( the route is actually a track file ). The route was built as three separate files, but I combined them for

RT1 Riders Hill in Dahlonega, Ga to Robbinsville, NC
120 miles / 3:24 hours

This section will start with paved roads in order to get us to the good stuff. The fun begins are we ride along Rainbow Springs road and uses 711 in the Wayah road area. RT1 ends in Robbinsville. We will stop for lunch and petrol in Robbinsville.

RT2 Robbinsville, NC to Hayesville, NC
52 miles / 1:44 hours

RT2 picks up where we left off in Robbinsville as we turn south to follow the Trail of Tears route. From Andrews we head back to Wayah road for a bit before we take Old River road to Junalaska road to Tuni Gap road to Tusquitte road into Hayesville where this route ends.

RT3 Hayesville, NC to Riders Hill in Dahlonega, Ga
52 miles / 1:48 hours

RT3 will take us south of Hayesville back to Rider’s Hill, but this leg of our journey will be far from boring. This route features Wolf Pen Gap road and Hwy 60.
