Some of our regular guys, along with a couple of new guys and myself rode a loop on North Creek and Cornelius Creek on a cold Saturday morning recently.
We started on a small but fun loop trail near the campground.
Eventually you hook indirectly in with an overgrown fire road dubbed Grassy 1.
A couple of miles and we regrouped before the next road.
Onto Grassy 2.
A mild mannered rolling road, it still had a surprise for me. A frozen stick covered in leaves planted me into the dirt. No real harm done aside from hurt pride.
There was a little bit of color down low still left.

We crossed the somehow still standing foot bridge over North Creek.
Then onto the main climb, starting on North Creek.
Leafy and rocky riding, along with some hike-a-bike.
Eventually we were on Forest Service gravel for the remaining climb
The view from Sunset Fields on the Blue Ridge Parkway was great.
Cold was getting the better of us. The descent was welcome to get us out of the wind and rolling back downhill.
The connector to Cornelius Creek is a nice rolling break between 2 pieces of rocky gnar.
Cornelius Creek trail was as mean as ever. Rocks and leaves are not usually a good combination. I believe there were several off the bike encounters on this section, not by me this time.
