This ride begins with a forest road climb and views that rival any in Pisgah—just make sure you look over your shoulder on the way up. You’ll easily spot Pilot Rock and Slate Rock hanging on the mountainsides below the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The single track that follows is as great as the scenery. Ride surface is 7.9 miles of single track and 4.3 miles of forest road. The hightlights include stunning views, technical single track, a swinging bridge, South Mills River, and fun downhills.
