Tipton Hill Loop

Tipton Hill Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Beginning along the French Broad River, this loop rolls over gentle hills through rural countryside. You can expect plenty of really good views on this ride. From the open farmland valleys, you look up to the surrounding Blue Ridge.

Atop several of the climbs, you can see in all directions- something to keep in mind as you spin your way to the top. If it's hot and clear, be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and lots of liquids. There are few stores on the route. Points of interest: Travel through high populations of bluebirds; 360 degree views."

A beautiful day in August allowed my wife and to unload the bikes at Ledges on the French Broad and ride the 18 mile loop that is well described by Trails. Virtually zero traffic (except on Thunder Road) and only one dog made this a relaxing ride with minimal climbs. Farm scenery and some long views made it a 7 out of 10 ride.
