    Need a new NC ride

    I'm looking to get out of town this weekend and escape the rides in the Triad.
    What I'm looking for: I'd like for it to be less than 3 hours drive from Greensboro. 5-20 miles of technical single track. A bonus if there is some trout streams near by and a campground. Maybe somewhere in Pisgah?
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Honestly, I think you are on track by thinking "Pisgah",

    but to fit the need of "5-20 miles of technical singletrack" you might also visit www.trianglemtb.com. We have a few trails that fit that description:

    NewLight is very good
    Tar River is awesome, although you need to coordinate to have someone show you around or risk not having a good ride (and they require you sign a waiver)
    and there are several other trails in the area.

    I won't be around this weekend, but would be glad to hook up and show you around some time in the future.,

    Personally, if you can get to Pisgah (or go north to VA, there is some great stuff there too) I'd go for that, but look me up any time if you want some variety a little closer to home.

    I've been meaning to get to G-boro and W.S. this summer too, maybe we can hook up for a day at OwlsRoost and some of the other local parks, and/or Hobby in WS....

    Thanks for the info. I hit the Roost on Sat. and it was tough (and very soggy). I mostly just want to get out of town and see some sights along the way. I was hoping for linville but the only info I could find on the net was describing 50miles of dirt road trails. Not interested. I'll be breaking in my new Kona Kikapu DX if all goes right this afternoon.
