    Staying near Linville Falls

    My buddies and I will be heading to the Linville Falls area in April. We'll be heading down on a Friday from DC and returning on Sunday. Saturday we'll head down to Bent Creek, but we might want to try to ride Friday on the way in and find someplace good to ride nearer Linville Falls on Sunday before we head back.

    Any suggestions?

    Linville is pretty close to Boone. Maybe Rocky Knob in Boone. I have never been there but search this forum and you should find info on it. And Wilson's Creek is near there, but you might need a guide for that one.
    Friends don let friends ride road bikes.

    You will be 5 min from Wilson Creek. At the very least get a good map, a guide is ideal. Rocky Knob is closed for now.

    The Natgeo is good.There is a new Wilson Creek area map that is good also. The issue is that even with a good map none of the trails are marked. Some are blazed but it is easy to get lost if you don't know the area.

    Yo nbwallace do yourself a favor and get someone to be your guide.....it's not hard to talk one of us that know those trails into coming to ride/guide for the day. Without a guide you're gonna have a very confusing day in the Wilson Creek Wilderness.

    Now it looks like we'll be staying further South near Dupont and Brevard. I would still appreciate some guidance. It looks liek we'll try to ride Bent Creek Friday afternoon and near Brevard on Saturday and perhaps Sunday morning.
