Going to Pisgah next week and looking for any hidden gems or must do trails. I’ve been once before and rode Black Mountaoin, Avery, Bennett Gap and Sycamore Cove in Brevard. We also spent a day at Bailey Bike Park. We plan to hit DuPont as well this time.
Currently on the hit list:
If anyone has a favourite I’d love to add it to the list.
Amazing trip, checked off many of the trails on my hit list. We had amazing locals tour us around so it really was a perfect trip. Was happy to have brough my Hightower, could have used more bike at times but we had some huge days so it was a good choice overall. One day was 60km with 1700m of climbing, pretty epic. We rode everyday, except for the day it rained 100mm and we built an ark instead. Place is truly epic. Already looking to go back.
Is picture #6 of the gnarly rock corner on Pilot Rock? We rode Laurel Mountain to the top of Pilot both times (once in the snow), what a long ass climb haha.
Next time you’re down in the winter, check out some of the hiking trails. Some you’re allowed to bike on during the winter months. One particular fun one is Long Branch –> Butter Gap –> Cat Gap. Easier trails, but you are just death gripping speed down them. Doing these after Daniels Ridge is nice too.
Did you get out to Wilsons Creek? That place is crazy.
Never do Bradley Creek out of Turkey Pen. We crossed the river 35+ times….
