Summary:
Great system. Better than I was expecting. This is a good work out for the short distance that it covers (to me). Basically singletrack on the side of a mountain. with lots of switchbacks and up hill rock gardens. This is the challange but makes it worth while. Once you reach the top its a mix of small drops and table tops and rock gardens. Very fun on the decent in my opinion. Was not difficult at all to navigate and the small bumps and drops kept it interesting. Good sinage available through out to find your way. I did see alot of black diamond ratings through out. I would not rate the gardens or drops quite that but for someone new or who does not know their way its good to give a heads up of whats coming. Builders did a great job on this one. For those who complain, well its a mountain. Called Rocky Knob. It has Rocks. Not as tough as what you would see in a DH park. Just well made and fun to ride.

Recommended Route:
Climb from the parking lot through some switch backs and uphill rock gardens. Keep going until you get to the very top. Then drop the seat post and go.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Pisgah, Wilson creek, Beech MTN for a more real DH feel.

Summary:
Didn't enjoy myself and wouldn't go back. Too rocky, no flow, etc. Trails seem to be designed by those with a love of technical riding for those who love technical riding. That leaves a lot of people out.
I was there on a perfect Sunday afternoon and the parking lot was empty. Where are all the riders who love a good beating?
For those who like flow, speed and to not have to fix stuff after riding, go enjoy Kerr Scott trails.
If you love Rocky Knob, great. To me, the trails seems like a lot of effort aimed at a particular type of Go-Pro ready rider.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kerr Scott. Overmountain, Warrior Creek
