Description

Tibbs, Milma, and the final conclusion on Windy Gap form a somewhat legendary ride segment (or shuttle run) deep in the Cohutta Mountains of North Georgia.

This descent often serves as the most remote portion of the Drama Queen group ride (held annually) that begins at Mulberry Gap. All three of these trails are moto legal, and as such they are technical and challenging to varying degrees.

Tibbs offers up challenging rock gardens filled with rolling baby head rocks and loose boulders, washed out ravines, and ledge drops.

Don't underestimate this trail: it's brutally-technical and challenging in a trench-in-the-mountainside sort of way. Once onto Milma the grade mellows, and a few climbs are required as you follow the moderately-technical trail over to Windy Gap. Once on Windy Gap you'll get to enjoy most of the famously-flowy jumps and berms on the lower half of the trail.

Thanks to a never-ending stream of water bars, the lower section essentially functions as a smooth jump run until the trail ends at the lower Windy Gap trailhead. Sources: http://www.gregridestrails.com/2010/12/windy-gap-cycle-trail-ellijay-georgia.html
