    Isaqueena

    Gonna be heading down to ride Isaqueena this weekend from Asheville. I have never ridden the trails and have searched and looked at some maps. It looks like there are several different areas to choose from. Does anyone recommend any particular route. We are advanced riders looking for fast flowy singletrack with minimal fireroads. Thanks for any input.

    How many miles are you looking to do? I can loop together a couple of different routes for ya depending on how far your wanting to ride.

    Quick 10 I would say park down at doyle bottom ride hunters arrow enter in at the first intersection then go onto double fork...should be about 12 miles of fun riding. You will have maybe 2 miles of fire road. If you stay at the top parking lot run this route I high-lighted. Run this counter clockwise. I changed colors for the return trip because you double over a little bit to get to the dam rd trail. Its kinda hard to see.

    Anyone raced here before? What is the surface like? I've got a race there this Sunday and I'm trying to decide to fit something fast with tiny nobbies or something better suited to damp loamy soil.

    Looking at the weather its going to be dry and fast. Run something like a fast track or small block.

    Just left there (Thursday afternoon), it is fast and very hard packed and of course, lots of roots.

    Looks like large-volume and small nobbs will be the order of the day.
