Nantahala Village, North Carolina

Knobscorcher Professional Review and Guide

"The trail's use as a race site in the spring and fall contributes largely to its popularity. Radical bikers will like its demanding passages through horse-made ruts, crank deep. It is a fast course with steep drops and sharp curves. Due to heavy horse use, though, it stays muddy longer after a rain than do some of the other area trails.

Several alternate connections and routes allow for creativity in direction and length. Part of the trail follows the boundary line for a farm located below Nantahala Village. Scenery: Views across a narrow finger of Fontana Lake, and of the surrounding mountains; shaded, protected coves."
