    hey Fat Goose - Brother you get to ride lots of great places. Thanks for the pics! Since you seem to know the trails, I need some advice. I've got some friends coming down from NY in April for some riding in WNC for 3 days. We are hitting Dupont one day. The other days we are thinking either 2 days in Pisgah or one in Tsali and then one in Pisgah. Could you recommend a 30-40 miler in Pisgah with some great trails and views? I appreciate your help

    What kind of riding are you looking for in Pisgah?
    For a trail system, you can spend the day out at Bent Creek and easily find 30-40 miles.
    There is a good variety of trails there and it is fairly easy to navigate and well maintained.

    Or are you looking for more challenging stuff?

    For Dupont, I have posted a good 30 mile loop before that includes pretty much all the good trails that people seem to like best and uses very little service road. It could easily be turned in to a 40 mile loop if need be.

    I'd skip Tsali unless you are looking for an easier style ride to break Pisgah up. Nothing against Tsali but I'd probably do Bent Creek over Tsali. Not sure what your friends' skill and strength level is but 3 consecutive days is probably going to hurt. I'd tackle the good Pisgah trails first then hit Du Pont. You can make Du Pont easy, long, short, or hard. Maybe even do Du Pont in the middle to "rest". The Cedar rock area at Du Pont is my personal favorite. I love the granite but there are other good trails too. Like I said all depends on what you want to do, or better yet what you will be capable of doing.

    Do this search on google and you will find lots of info
    site:mtbr.com pisgah

    Also though I have not ridden there yet I might consider Rocky Knob in Boone. Place looks FUN.

    Thanks for the correction.
    Single tracks lists 30 miles
    Bent Creek Mountain Bike Trail in Asheville, North Carolina || SINGLETRACKS.COM

    According to the Western NC Trail guide, there is 27.59 miles of trails in Bent Creek.
    2.22 miles of those trails don't allow biking but as we also all know there are trails there that are no longer on the map. Not to mention the fact that does not include the service roads that connect some of the trails and that you can do them all in both directions and many of them should be.

    So, maybe I should reword what I said to be more precise.

    You could ride Bent Creek.
    There are 25.37 miles of biking trails listed on the map but there are a few trails there that are not on the map also. If you ride them all, including the ones not listed and the service roads you will need to ride to connect a few of them, you should get close to or possible a little over 30 miles. If you want to do 40, you may have to ride a couple backwards.:thumbsup:

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies. Its a pretty strong group of riders. I was thinking three days of Pisgah could be rough, thats why I was thinking one day at Tsali. We haven't agreed yet on what we want to do. I've ridden Tsali, Bent Creek, and Dupont but the more remote places in Pisgah I haven't ridden

    Theres just so many options in Pisgah to choose from. I was hoping to find something challenging with some views along the way. Want to give them their monies worth since they are driving all that way.

    Hey Joker, looks like others beat me to it. Just as well, I don't calculate milage when I ride or pay attention to the turns I make, I just go...and take lots of pics while I'm out there. :D

    Well in that case check out trail like
    Black Mountain, Pilot Rock, Laurel Mtn and Squirrels Gap
    Don't expect 30-40 mile loops but I don't think you will care at the end of the day.

    A little something for The Goose
    Took the Frankensteined KHS on vacation. Winds were very high - I was almost crab bait crossing the bridge! (Goose 5/12. Me - 5/13) Fun ride in the marshes of Edisto.
