Schoolhouse Ridge linked with Thorps creek trail makes for an excellent day loop hike or technical bike ride just two hours from Charlotte. The trails combines a decent workout, some limited ridge mountain views, and a fun traverse along Thorps creek valley. In fact, Thorps creek trail will provide the hiker/biker with a stunning waterfall, several creek crosses, and many photo opportunities. Starting from Mortimer campground, one can begin on either trail. Both trails are about 2-2.5 miles and end on Schoolhouse Road. Use the gravel road to connect the trails. The trails are separated by about one half mile with Schoolhouse to the NNW and Thorps to the SSE.
