In some parts the trail is a smooth dirt highway; in other parts it’s frame-buckling, rocky madness and wheel-wide cliff ledges. There are climbs that an alpaca would struggle with and descents that will plaster a rictus of thrill and terror across your face. An imposing ride, this thing will humble you, thrill you, kiss you, maybe kill you. Pay the insurance premium, then go enjoy yourself. Tread: 11.6 miles of butt-stomping Pisgah singletrack; 1.3 miles of gravel road.
