Buckwheat Knob Professional Review and Guide

"This seven-mile-plus loop uses nearly five miles of singletrack and a little over two miles of forest service road for what is a technical journey deep into Pisgah's woods. Plan for a couple of hour's worth of riding, part of which will be on the steep uphill (probably off-bike) climb to Buckwheat Knob.

The climb along the rolling ridge leading to Buckwheat Knob takes place among a mature hardwood forest, where the year-round users of this region are frequently seen: deer, turkeys, squirrels, and hawks, to name a few. The sounds of the southern Appalachians are a special dimension of mountain biking at Pisgah. Frequent primitive camping spots near the trailhead can make a day on the trail as easy as riding out of camp. Scenery: Rhododendron ad hardwoods cling to the steep sides of buckwheat in the Avery Creek watershed."
