    +1. I did a relatively short loop in BC on Friday afternoon. Yeah, there are some muddy spots, but for the most part the trails are pretty dry. Here's what we hit aside from gravel: Ingles Connector & Upper Ingles are good. Little Hickory/Sidehill a bit muddy in the flatter sections. Lower part of Lower Sidehill down to Boyd Branch Rd. was surprisingly good.

    And just FYI, the trail down from 5 points is Ingles Field. No biggie... as long as ya know yer route. :-)

    Coming in for the weekend - how are the trails? I'm hoping at least Dupont is rideable. Maybe BC?

    I dont know if I would say that everything is good.

    Road North Mills River today. It was awful. I had to post-hole through the mud. My wheels were getting sucked down into it.

    Bent Creek on Thursday was a little sloppy. Ingles Field had thick clay mud in several places. Im sure the lower trails were in no better shape.

    Your good to go! You may as well have fun, half of Asheville is, besides if you wait for a dry day you will never be able to ride.

    We bagged our ride in N MILLS due to weather. Rained like a mofo out there.

    If you go out, you are going to hit some bad spots. So either decide to ride or hang your bike up for the next month or two.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    Bent Creek should be closed to all trail users. I encountered the muddiest trails I've ever seen there, at least in full summer yesterday. It wasn't fun. Mills River has to be equally as bad.

    Anyone seen any decent trail conditions in Pisgah any where? I'd love to become reacquainted with my mountain bike properly but I'm thinking the trails need some TLC after this year.

    Side note: parkway is closed to cars, opened to bicycles past Bull Gap heading north towards Mitchell for those who hate riding on the road, this is a pretty rare opportunity. Might be a good idea to try something new this year!

    The current info concerning the section of the parkway closed because of the water damage is that this weekend may be the last weekend for non-motorist use. Starting on Monday it will be closed to all users.

    Right now things are ok.
    Next week could be a different story.

    Better play it safe and leave your bike home.

    I tried to tell you to leave your bike. You just didn't listen.

    Pisgah over Brevard way had around 25 inches of rain in July and August 2013 combined
    There was some serious erosion in some places.

    October has been great so far
    Nice cool temps, plenty of Sunshine
    I don't think there is gonna be much of a leaf show this year but the riding is great and the trails are in good condition

    AVOID BENT CREEK FOR AT LEAST 2 hours

    There is a huge wagon train going through bent creek right now. We sat for an hour and didnt move. Rice Pinnacle is completely full. They have some police escorts and are apparently going over the ridge into N. Mills. I'm riding tomorrow. If you or friends are heading there I would change plans.

    I have gotten stuck behind those guys before at N. Mills. Who the heck are they?

    This is an annual wagon/tractor train that has been occurring in early October for years. It is quite a sight for someone that is not expecting it!

    Yellow Jackets on Sycamore about 200yrs up from Starnes Branch. I was hiking with my dog, he got popped a couple times while they swarmed us but never got me. We ran like hell so I never saw the hives location.

    I will be hiking Sycamore with my dogs this week

    Not exactly sure where you are describing?
    Is this the stream on lower sycamore with the dual log bridge?

    Yes but down near the bottom of that side of Sycamore where it intersects with Starnes Branch or whatever they renamed Mtn to Sea there recently.

    Ah, ok, near the junction of Sycamore and Mtn to sea, the short connector that goes back up to Grassy road?
