Thanks. We are going to Pine Log Sunday. Good to know I need to wait until after 10am. May wear a orange vest just to be safe.

I was on line buying my big game license for deer hunting and noticed that the WMAs are going to start charging a fee to non hunter users of their property including cyclists.

As a note some deer hunters also ride mtb. I was at Urawhee in NC last week and saw a deer hunter pushing his bike out of the woods with a doe strapped on the rack.

Georgia Outdoor Recreational Pass (GORP) info can be found on DNR's Site.

But until the next round of budget cuts, a GORP is all you need.

If I am reading the website correctly, you do not need a GORP pass to ride Dawson Forest. The bike trails are in the City of Atlanta Tract of Dawson Forest WMA which is south of Hwy 53 http://www.georgiawildlife.com/sites/default/files/uploads/wildlife/maps/wma/locator/DawsonForestLocationMap.pdf. The WMA website indicates you only need a GORP pass north of Hwy 53 for Dawson Forest http://www.georgiawildlife.com/GORP/Properties. Not sure if other trails exist in the other three tracts. I am only aware of the ones at Dawson Forest Rd.
