Nestled within the sprawling Jake/Bull Mountain network in Dahlonega, Georgia, the No Tell Trail (marked as 223P on Forest Service signs) is a delightful little secret. Spanning 2 miles, this intermediate-level, network trail offers an alluring blend of double tracks, overgrown fire roads, and a breathtaking singletrack stretch.
Starting from FS 77 and stretching up to FS 28-1, No Tell is a multi-dimensional trail. It doesn't push you too hard in terms of elevation but doesn't fail to excite either. A noteworthy point is the trail's connectivity: linking with Turner Creek/Nimblewill trail from the south and ending up just a stone's throw away from the entrance to Black Branch Loop.
If one is looking for a relatively brief but sweet addition to their ride in the Jake/Bull Mt network, No Tell Trail is a highly recommended pitstop. Whether it's the quick transitions from double track to singletrack or the heart-pumping wallride-style turn, the trail punches above its weight in terms of sheer riding joy. It might not be a behemoth in distance, but it more than compensates with its feature-rich terrain and sheer riding pleasure. Therefore, the No Tell Trail should be on any cyclist's radar who wishes to explore the trail-rich region of Dahlonega, Georgia.
