Whissenhunt ORV area, north GA

Post by SpeedyR » Tue Dec 02, 2014 4:02 pm

went to a local riding area this past sunday after Thanksgiving. Whissenhunt ORV area is just north of Dahlonega GA, or about 20 miles south of Suches Georgia where Two Wheels of Suches is located for those that might know the area. Near the Frank D Merrill Ranger base.

I was going to meet a few friends that were riding little bikes (450's mostly) and they left around noon so I ended up exploring more on my own. I had ridden here once but it has been maybe 4 years ago and I didn't really remember any of the trails just that there's one main trail that goes back and forth thru the middle and then other trails branch off of that one. Two way trails, and mostly ATV wide. there is one technical single track trail but since I was solo on the 950 I didn't want to press my luck exploring that one! $5 to ride all day so that was nice. trails were in good conditions and it just reminded me of riding some of the more challenging FS roads in north GA but more condensed (i.e. I don't have to ride 50 miles to hit another "good" section).

Overall, I was very impressed and it was good fun and nice trails. When May 2015 comes around and we have the South East Super Enduro rally I'm thinking this is where we might spend an afternoon. This is video of one of the trails, about 5 minutes so pretty short but gives you an idea of the trails. pretty simple, but enough fun/challenge to keep you on your toes. nice to hear the 950 running thru the woods. I shot some other video and will edit that later but here's one of the shorter trails in entirety (about 5 minutes).
