A fun little loop with a good climb, fast curves, rhodo tunnels, neat bridges, and technical descents. Seasonal use only, meaning October 15 to April 15. If you're staying at the campground you have to ride this. Sycamore cove starts across the street.

Summary:
Very good, short climb for the amount of downhill/flat. Almost all
of downhill is ridge riding, and is extremely rooty and rocky. 15
mph is max suggested speed. I had a friend go off the side from
hitting a root wrong and it was quite a fall down the mountain.
Other than that, be careful, and its a great ride!!

Recommended Route:
start trail at back end of campground and finish at ampetheatre
parking.

Summary:
Nice moderate climb followed by an awesome singletrack section through a rhodedendron tunnel. Some very steep technical sections. Too short, though. A good ride to squeeze in when you don't have lots of time.

Summary:
Great little ride. This was the last trail I got to do before I (sadly) had to head back to the flat land. The counterclockwise loop is just enough of a burning climb. The top section reminds of a mini Laurel Mountain. Riding right on the edge of a drop off with the rhododendoron (sp) tunnels. Combine this ride with Sycamore and you have a full morning of fun.

Recommended Route:
Ride it clockwise for a gradual climb and bomber downhill, or counterclockwise for the steeper climb.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Check out Sycamore Cove across the highway.
