    Help - Trail Advice - Beach Mountain, NC

    I will be in Beach Mountain, North Carolina for a week starting this Monday. Can anyone provide recommended trails to ride and/or starting points in Beach Mountain or near.

    I love to ride so looking for the best trails anyone would recommend while I am down there. I typically ride rocky technical / terrain because of where I live but I am game for anything! Just love to get out and ride. I am totally unfamiliar with the area.

    The lift accessed trails are closed for the winter but you can still ride the Emerald Outback trails at Beech Mtn. I wish there was a Beach Mtn. Id grab the shorts and flip flops and tear it up!

    Emerald Outback

    Im not sure if they are open or not but if not... you can drive over to Wilson Creek. I would try to find a guide or stick to the official trails so you dont get lost. Super easy to get lost out there if you dont know it well.

    Another option in that area is Rocky Knob bike park:
    Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park | Boone's Mountain Bike Park

    There are also trails at Leas-McRae college too. Lees-McRae College Mountain Bike Trail in Banner Elk, North Carolina || SINGLETRACKS.COM

    If you have a day to kill drive over to Asheville and ride Bent Creek or Brevard, NC to ride the Pisgah.

    Hopefully other folks will post up to help you out
    On your left!

    Purpose built mountain bike park.
    Bikes one direction and hikers the opposite so very little user conflict.
    Awesome trails too.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    You might just find snow up there. Plan accordingly. Planks may be a better option.

    Warrior Creek is not a bad drive from RK either

    +1 for snow. I was up there a few weeks ago and everything was snow covered. However, looking at the snow cams for the trails, it looks very sparse now. Probably could ride - just muddy.

    If you ride Warrior or RKP try to catch it when the clay is frozen. Peanut butter otherwise.
