Buckwheat Knob Loop

Buckwheat Knob Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Some of this trail is just simply insane. We rode up a waterfall; we rode down several small cliff faces. Sometimes you’ll be afraid to continue, and sometimes you’ll be too terrified to stop. The descent down from Buckwheat Knob is brutal and pounding with several rideable but life-threatening tech 5 moves along the way.

This ride will test every limit you’ve got: endurance, technical skills, courage, fortitude, and strength. If you pride yourself on riding the hairy stuff, come to Buckwheat Knob, and come prepared to be humbled. This is the stuff that legends are made of. Tread: 9.3 miles of phenomenal Pisgah singletrack; 2 miles of gravel road."
