    Trails over 5,000 ft.

    I am looking for some trails that are up over 5,000 ft., or there about. Are there any rideable trails, of this sort, in this area that are made up of singletrack?
    Thanks in advance.

    The north leg of Buncombe Horse Range (Trail 191 on the Lynville Gorge Pisgah district map) is mostly above 5000'..

    Thanks Eipicbruce,
    I don't have those trails on my map of Pisgah, The Pisgah Ranger District, but maybee I will pick that map up. Are there more than 20 miles of rideable trails in that area?

    Oh yeah. The entire Buncombe Horse trial is 17 miles. HeartBreak is about 6 and Kitsuma is about 6. There are lots of options for long epic rides up there if you don't mind hammering on fire and gravel roads too.

    Laurel Mountain and Pilot Rock are both above 5k aren't they? Lots of stuff in the Mills River area I believe.
