    Which Tsali trail is more fun R/L or T/M?

    I have some friends coming into town memorial day weekend and I'm planning rides at Dupont, Pisgah and Tsali. I want to plan Tsali on a day that is better for a flowing single track type of ride.

    Which trails would be better, or is it really about the same?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    If flowy is what you are after, right and left are it but thompson and mouse are always worth a whirl for true woodsy riders


    The longer the ride - the better the pain

    I agree, both are good but right and left are the better choice. If are doing a combined loop w/o returning to the parking lot, I recommend L->R (clockwise) over R->L. In my experience the right loop rides about the same in either direction, but the left has much better flow in the "recommended" clockwise direction.

    Either way, and no matter where you go, have a safe trip and great riding!

    String together the Left and Right Loops clockwise as stated above for the best flow. I was just out to Tsali last week and the Left loop is in the best shape I've seen in years. Right Loop still has some mud holes that need to be drained, but still a fun ride.

    Left/right loops are best there. The left loop flows much better in the clockwise direction.
    Suspension and gears are the bastion of the proletariat.
