Pine Tree Loop Professional Reviews and Guides

"I’d consider this trail the perfect sampler for a novice rider who has bellied up to Pisgah’s fat tire feast for the first time. Pine Tree offers up enough fun to get friends hooked on riding, and enough scary stuff to keep them humble.

It also makes a fine appetizer for advanced riders before moving on to the main course in the mountains above. Tread: 2 miles of singletrack; 3.4 miles of gravel Forest Service road."

"At times, especially in summer and fall, the area can be congested, but if you hike during the off-season or on a weekday, it is a perfect place to hike with your dog. If hiking during fall hunting season (in North Carolina, hunting seasons run from September to May), place a blaze orange vest on your dog, since hunting is permitted in the national forest.

Currently, hunting is prohibited on Sundays throughout the state. The Pine Tree Loop Trail is one of many great little hikes in the Bent Creek area, winding through forests and fields and crossing enough streams to keep dogs interested, alert, and happy. Although mountain bikes are allowed on this trail, it is flat and wide enough for users to safely pass each other."
