Georgia's Cloudland Canyon Multisport (Bike & Hike) Weekend
Description: Located near Chattanooga at the southern end of Lookout Mountain, Cloudland Canyon State Park offers unparalleled opportunities for adventure. On this trip our local guides will show you the canyon's best features over two fun filled days. You'll meet your guides at the REI Kennesaw store on Friday evening where you'll be fitted for a mountain bike and able to make any last minute purchases for the weekend. After introductions, we'll load into our bus and make the drive to our cottage accommodations near the canyon rim. Saturday is all about mountain biking. After breakfast we'll load up to ride the Five Points Trail System. Five Points is one of the newest systems in the Southeast. It offers over 20 miles of trail for every level of rider over some incredible terrain. Imagine a roller coaster track for your bike! It's a good place to have a guide too so we can tailor a route to meet the group's needs. After a day of mountain biking, you'll be free to relax or enjoy trails around the canyon rim. On Sunday we'll spend the morning hiking through the canyon to vistas, waterfalls, and maybe even some caves before loading up in the bus for our ride back to Atlanta. Riders may bring their own mountain bikes or we can loan you a bike at no additional charge. All meals, lodging, transportation, trail fees, and equipment rentals are included in the price. A specific gear list will be provided upon registration.

- Ride some of the best mountain biking trails in the Southeast
