Jake and Bull Mountain Trail System

  

The Jake and Bull Mountain Trail System provides approximately 36 miles of recreational trails for equestrians, bicyclists and hikers.  The Jake Mountain Trail System and Bull Mountain Trail System connect to form a complex system of scenic trails within a four square mile area of the Chattahoochee National Forest's Blue Ridge Ranger District.  This area is located in western Lumpkin County, less than ten minutes from downtown Dahlonega.  The system is made up of interconnecting dirt trails and gravel roads which are accessed by two trailheads.
