Mulberry Gap, Here We Come!

Come ride with us in the heart of the designated “Mountain Bike Capital of Georgia.”

We will blend an in-depth version of our traditional Intermediate / Advanced skills training with trail-side skills sessions in this special 3-day Ninja skills event.

 Offering cabins, camping, hot tubs, access to miles of mountain biking trails and home cooked meals, Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way is a MUST ride destination on every mountain bikers bucket list.  Book your meals and accommodations with Mulberry Gap and #justbringyourbike!

This camp is designed for the enthusiast rider or racer looking to build up and clean up their ‘toolbox’ of mountain bike skills in order to handle a variety of terrain at speed.

It’s time to take your skills to a whole new level, so why not do it at a beautiful wooded retreat and let someone else do the cooking and ride planning for a few days?!  Join us!

Hear what previous Mulberry Gap Camp participants have to say about the camp:::

“The instructors were attentive and always helpful. After learning the fundamental and intermediate skills in the practice area, we hit the trails and the training didn’t stop!  Instructors would get to a technical portion of a trail and have us all stop and they would show us how to use the skills we just learned.  The camp was worth every penny, highly recommended!”  ~Vic D.

“I’m so glad I made the decision to be part of the Ninja Mulberry Gap 3-day camp. Richard and Randy are really skilled at breaking things down, very patient and kind.  They were very attentive to what each of us needed individually while maintaining a no-pressure, fun vibe.  The place is beautiful, rustic and offers a great opportunity to unplug.  I have gained some useful insight about not only being on the bike, but set-up and nutrition as well.”  ~Susan T.

“I attended the Ninja Mountain Bike Performance camp at Mulberry Gap with my wife and 20-year-old son. Both are strong and athletic, but lacked experience in mountain biking.  Thus, I have always been reluctant to take them on more technical trails. The instructors had them practicing berms, balance beams, and drops before hitting the trails where they put those skills to good use.  They were clearing technical terrain in no time!  After a weekend of training they improved so impressively that I can’t wait to take them on some of my favorite trails!”  ~Armando de A.

“The accommodations at Mulberry Gap Get-A-Way were out of this world!   The trails are top-quality too and incredibly fun to ride and teach on. Between Pinhoti, Bear Creak and the Mulberry Gap skills progression area, we had all the terrain and features we needed to really help everyone take their riding to the next level.  We can’t wait to go back!” ~Richard La China, Lead Instructor

“The trail network surrounding Mulberry Gap is broad and combined with the well thought out skills area provides plenty of opportunities for teaching a wide array of mountain bike skills. I enjoy providing foundational skills, applying and analyzing them during trail sessions, and presenting genuine feedback prepares camp participants with the necessary tools to navigate diverse terrain.” ~Ryan Brown, Assistant

“Trails full of flow, rocks, roots, technical switchbacks, drops, challenging ascents and fast descents. The riding here was incredible and such a welcomed change for me coming from the desert of Southern California. I look forward to going back in the spring for our next camp.” ~Randy Inglis, Lead Instructor

Booking Meals & Accommodations with Mulberry

While we do not require that you stay/eat at Mulberry Gap, we highly recommend that you do!  Mulberry will serve as our home base for the camp and the meals, accommodations and hospitality will not disappoint.  Please make your reservations through the Nina Event listing with Mulberry Gap, here 👉 Mulberry Gap.  Do not wait to book with Mulberry – space fills up quickly!

Ninja clinic participants who are not staying / dining with  Mulberry Gap will be required to pay a weekend facility use fee of $20 which covers on-site parking, use of on-site trails and access to shower facilities.  This fee can be paid by calling the Mulberry Gap office (706-698-2875).


After camp, you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and will have a boost in confidence on technical trails. You will be able to tackle rougher terrain and trickier corners with greater control and flow through single track, switchbacks, and berms with far more speed and efficiency.

You can think of our camps as an awesome opportunity for what we like to call a “traincation”—a fun-filled vacation in which you get to spend most of your time doing what you like to do most — riding your mountain bike!
