In fact, the Cohutta Mountains are some of the oldest known mountains in the entire world and the Cohutta Wilderness is the second largest wilderness in Georgia. These trails are so deep in nature that for a while, the trail’s attendants enjoyed the company of a curious bear who would sit in the trees and enjoy the fresh air with his human friends. At Blue Ridge Mountain Trail Rides, friendship, hospitality and a love for the great outdoors are all a huge part of a mission and passion for horseback riding.
Join the trail guides as they guide you through a variety of relaxing rides.

Owner of the trails, Wade Whelchel couldn’t be more thrilled with the success and popularity of the trails. Having purchased the business in the 1990’s, Wade has not only built the business; he has also built a warm reputation to go along with it. When Wade found the barn years ago, it was in great need of repair. Wade saw the potential and poured his heart into making the trails what they are today, a place for individuals and families to escape, relax and have a great time. In fact, the trails have expanded to bring more welcome to their younger guests. Wade explains, “We’ve been working toward family rides.”
For the enjoyment of younger children, the trails now offer a Pony-Go-Round. Kids will absolutely love their first riding experience. It is also great exposure which may enable them to grow into more experienced riders. Along with the trails and pony rides, the property also carries a zip line. While picnicking by the Hollow, little ones can feed the trout. Kids absolutely love watching the beautiful fish leap up and out of the water to grab the food. At the trails, every animal is respected and cherished.
The horses on the property are very well cared for and loved. All the attendants believe the relationships with the horses have a major impact on each guest’s experience. The barn manager explains, “We go the extra mile. We show the horses love, and we get a loving attitude in return.” Because the horses are so happy and well cared for, they can be knowledgeably matched with a rider. This level of care helps to add an extra level of safety to every trail ride.
For years now, the Blue Ridge Mountain Trail Rides at Hells Hollow have proven to be one of the most relaxing, adventurous and beautiful activities in North Georgia. Come by yourself or bring the entire family to enjoy this Blue Ridge favorite.
