    Download the Avenza PDF mapping software on your phone. get the E. Grandfather Ranger District map so you dont get lost and take off on some forest roads. You'll find some good stuff...

    Raspberry, Greentown, etc...

    watch for large holes in the trail.
    On your left!

    Lots of options... Lake James state park just opened 12+ miles of singletrack. For less technical, higher-mileage, high elevation gravel riding, check out the route for Savage CX (Savage CX in Marion, NC, United States | MapMyRide), which circumnavigates the gorge. Close by is Wilson Creek, which has tons more gravel and some trails which used to be the only thing around.

    It kind of depends on what you are looking for. Not as much trail as Brevard but if you don't mind some gravel in between you can link up some fun rides.

    Speaking of large holed trails, we were taking the kids on a hike and saw a huge cat print towards the bottom.

    Yeah there are quite a few stories of "mountain cats" (bigger than bobcats) in the Gorge area.
