This loop mixes together a wide selection of Fontana’s trails: Smooth, buffed contour runs lead you into extremely technical stream crossings and rock gardens. The climbs are steep and challenging, and the descents will test both your courage and high-speed avoidance skills. Throughout it all, you’re surrounded by the emerald Eden that is the Nantahala National Forest. Tread: 5.8 miles of singletrack; 5.5 mile of gravel doubletrack; 0.8 mile of pavement (all inside the Village though, so few cars).
