      Since 2003, SABA has been collaborating with the USFS and the Clay County Communities Revitalization Association to develop a trail system off of Jackrabbit Road in Clay County, NC. This is located on a peninsula on beautiful Lake Chatuge, on the NC/GA border.

      Close to 15 miles of machine constructed singletrack trails are complete and based on a stacked-loop design. The 3.1 mile Central Loop is the "core" trail that all other optional trails are connected. Many of the trails border Lake Chatuge, while others meander through the woods or ridge-top.

      These trails were specifically designed to appeal to all skill levels, beginner to advanced. It remains a work-in-progress, with signage, maps, parking lot facilities (pavilion/restrooms/information board) being planned, along with optional technical trail features (TTF's).

      Proceeds from SABA fundraising events help benefit the progression and future maintenance of this project.
