Beasley Knob OHV Area
The Beasley Knob OHV Trail System is a challenging trail system
located off of U.S. Highway 76 in Union County, GA. It is conveniently
located two miles east of the town of Blairsville and can be accessed by two
trailheads. The system provides approximately 10.6 miles of recreational
riding for OHV enthusiasts , including those riding four-wheel drive
vehicles, motorcycles and ATVs. The system is made up of interconnecting
dirt trails, rock hill climbs and gravel roads through the Chattahoochee
National Forest. It is recommended for experienced riders, only, due to its
challenging terrain and steep ascents. Please, no bolted, studded or tire
chains allowed. The Beasley Knob Trails are open from sunrise to sunset.
