    Trip to Asheville 6/30 - 7/4 Need Trail Suggestions

    I am heading down to Asheville this weekend from Cincinnati and am looking for some trail suggestions. I plan to ride Pisgah, Tsali and Dupont. I enjoy fairly technical stuff but am open to any great ride suggestions. I have noticed that several of the suggested routes on various sites are closed to bikers this time of year.

    Any suggestion as to what trails to take to put together 3 great rides (on at each) would be greatly appreciated! I am not sure when I will be able to make a trip like this again so I want to make sure to hit the "must rides"!

    Pisgah:

    Laurel Mtn. > Pilot Rock

    Dupont:

    Cedar Rock, Big Rock, Burnt Mtn and whatever else you stumble across

    Tsali:
    Skip it and ride in Pisgah again instead.

    I referenced this 13 mile loop when i was up there riding last summer. I loved it! Great way to tie in some of the smaller water falls, & bombing down Ridgeline was AWESOME!

    Agreed Tsali is over rated.

    You can please some people sometimes but you can't please all the people all the time.

    Agreed. Ride Tsali if you want to be able to say you rode Tsali, otherwise it is time better spent in Pisgah or Dupont.

    Thank you all for your suggestions. We had a phenomenal time! Day 1 we hit everything we could at DuPont - about 16 mi. Day 2 an epic ride at Pisgah - turkey pen > squirrel gap > over black mountain > turkey pen. Around 22 mi of great riding. Day 3 12 mi at bent creek. Great area for riding. It will be an annual trip!

    I've ridden DuPont and bent creek. How was turkey-Squirrel? I've ridden claw hammer up to black and down as well. Doing a day trip Saturday and trying to decide what to ride. Last time I did laurel mtn-pilot rock. A blast!!! May do it again, but wanted something longer.
