Little Hickory Top Professional Reviews and Guides

"Little Hickory Top is an excellent ride for someone who wants to venture up onto the high trails, but who isn’t up for the speed of Ingles Field Gap or the technical challenges of Betty and Mo’ Heinous.

This loop gives you a long warm-up with plenty of time to build your courage for the trip back down. Enough rocks, roots, berms, and hops to still make it feel like an adventure. Tread: 3.2 miles of singletrack; 6.7 miles of gated Forest Service road; 0.2 mile of gravel road; 0.2 mile of pavement."

"This nice ride that climbs to Ingles Field Gap is somewhat tough, but also a lot of fun since there is so much downhill that follows. Much of the track is smooth with the occasional sprinkling of rocks and roots. The last part is on a seasonal trail, but you can always finish up on Lower Sidehill or down FS 479.

The ride surface is 7.3 miles of single track and 1 mile of forest road. Highlights include small stream crossings, occasional whoops, rhodo and hemlock tunnels, and roots and rocks."
