    Extended weekend roadtrip destination

    My friend and I are looking to take a 3 or 4 day trip down to NC (was thinking Pisgah or Ashville) with both trail and DH bikes. Does anyone know of a long backcountry descent (similar to Downieville or Kernville in Cali) that is flowy, fast, not too rocky but has some technical parts that would be good for a FS trailbike. If the same area has DH trails, that's icing on the cake.

    Remember our mountains are small compared to what is out west. So here a long down hill will not be a long down hill in Cali.

    If you are looking for cycling and want to hit up several areas, look for a place near South Asheville or in Arden, NC (area around the airport or community called Biltmore Park).

    This is only minutes to Bent Creek and Blue Ridge Parkway. And Dupont, Pisgah, and Downtown Asheville are only 30 minute d So you can hit several areas from one easy location. It can also be less expensive than downtown too.

    Thanks for the info. All signs point to the Asheville area.

    Some trails you will want to hit while in the area

    Green's Lick (Bent Creek)
    Lower Hillside (Bent Creek)
    Sleepy Gap (Bent Creek)

    Ridgeline (Dupont)

    And too many others to name.


    You should have a great time here...
