High-altitude trails at their best, with spectacular views of John, Cedar, and Looking Glass Rocks. You’ll circle the top of Pilot Mountain. Watch for the hidden turn just past Farlow Gap. If you miss it, this really will be a long, long ride! The ride surface is 8.5 miles of single track and 2.6 miles of forest road. Highlights include great views, long climbs, very rocky trail sections, whoop-te-doos, cascades, and the hidden turn.
