Welcome to Visit Augusta GA blog
Mountain biking is a great activity to explore the area around Augusta. With over 100 miles of single track, you can take your pick from all sorts of trail options. This weekend we decided to check out a new section of Bartram trail that connects two parks at Lake Thurmond. The new section extends the length of the original trail to 18 ½ miles one way from West Dam Park to Wildwood Park while passing by Spring Lakes and Petersburg Campground. Depending how far you want to ride on this in and out style of trail, you can start at any of the four trailheads. We met up with friends at the trailhead just outside the Petersburg Campground to ride the new section that extends towards Wildwood Park.
The new trail is considered intermediate level and was designed with exciting banked turns, dips, and jumps.
With all those fun features and the occasional beautiful view of the lake while meandering through the woods, this trail could easily become a favorite of mine!
If you’d like to ride Bartram Trail or explore some of the other trails in the area check out SORBA-CSRA, our local mountain biking club. Their website and forum are great resources for biking information and directions.
If you need to rent a mountain bike during your visit, contact Chain Reaction Bicycle Shop at (706) 855-2024.
See you on the trails!

Downtown Augusta has lots of little hidden gems, just waiting for you to stumble up on them. Tire City Potters, is one such gem! Situated in an old garage, this pottery studio is a lot more than meets the eye. If you’re enjoying a First Friday downtown or strolling down 10th Street after a delicious meal at the Rooster’s Beak or Bee’s Knees you might find yourself wandering into Tire City.
When the large garage doors are open, the studio is quite inviting. Earlier this week, I was enjoying Taco Tuesday at the Rooster’s Beak across the street. Since the weather was so nice we sat outside while we ate and watched the crowd at the pottery studio. Our out of town guests were quite curious, so after supper we decided to pop in and see what we could find.
These skull and crossbones mugs would make a perfect gift for even the most macho coffee aficionado!
There is quite a wide variety of pottery from vases and platters, to business card holders and tea kettles.
My favorite were these tiny pinch pots! I bought a few for Christmas gifts, as they would be perfect finger bowls, salt keepers, or jewelry holders!
If you are downtown and the lights are on, stop by and check out Tire City, you might just find something amazing!
