Buzzards Roost

This 11 mile trail system is starting to be recognized as the crown jewel of mountain biking in Northwest GA and we are extremely proud to be working to get the county to open this by Spring 2021.

Although the trail is not officially open, we have permission from the county to open on certain days.We are planning on building more trails on the interstate side of the park. Consider making a donation to add more trails to the Roost at Rocky Face Ridge! The “Buzzards Roost” property is located on Rocky Face Ridge, which lies east of I-75 just north of the City of Dalton.

This property is approximately 1,000 acres which was acquired with a generous grant from the Civil War Land Trust, Whitfield County funds, Lyndhurst Foundation and other local funds. Buzzards Roost and the Grant Farm property are of significant archaeological value, as it was the site of the Civil War Battle of Mill Creek, the first altercation of the Atlanta Campaign. The property also contains unique terrain, slopes and ridges, and scenic views that offer significant outdoor recreation opportunities to the local and regional residents. Whitfield County and Northwest Georgia SORBA have agreed to develop hiking and mountain bike trails on this property to enhance the outdoor recreation opportunities while preserving the historic Civil War entrenchments as a nationally significant cultural resource.
