A Spring Fling in North Carolina

May 1, 2018 at 18:32
by Martin Lortz  

When it comes to mountain biking, I am a the-grass-is-greener-somewhere-else-oholic. The struggle is real. It began by gazing at double page spreads in magazines a couple decades back, then brought to breaking point with the never-ending ‘look where I am’ stream of social media image fodder. The good news is my condition is under control. The bad news is, it’s the end of February in the upper reaches of northeastern North America, and the grass that is starting to show beneath the slowly melting snow is a brown spongy mess. The only thing to do in this situation is embrace the reality that at this time, the grass really is greener somewhere else. Road trip anyone? A March break in Brevard, North Carolina, here we come.


Why Brevard? Location, location, location. Being sandwiched between Pisgah National Forest and DuPont State Recreational Forest is the reason why Brevard is firmly entrenched on the list of the best mountain biking towns in the USA. With 800 km (480 miles) or so of trails to explore, our four-day visit will barely scratch the surface. We’re okay with that as long as the scratching is done in shorts and short sleeves and a thick slathering of sun applied vitamin D.

As we drive south, winter’s grip is proving hard to shake as snowstorms swirl around us all the way to the north end of Tennessee. With the average March temperature for Brevard hovering around 15C (59F), we had warm hopes. So the 0C (32F) on day one is a bit disappointing but the forecast is looking good, the sun is shining and the trails are dry.

Ask anyone for DuPont State Recreational Forest ride advice, and a couple must do trails always rise to the top of the list with the Ridgeline taking the top spot. What’s a tourist to do? Listen to those who know of course. Jim Branch, Buck Forest Rd, White Pine, Hooker Creek, Ridgeline, the approximately 10 km (6 mile) loop is a perfect way to get our winter-weary legs accustomed to the long uphill again. Never doubt local knowledge, the flowy Ridgeline trail definitely qualifies as a must do and another go at it is a perfect carrot dangling at the end of the climb that keeps us pushing lap after lap.



All rides need a beginning and an end, in today’s case they both happen to be at the same place, the bike shop and tourist attraction, The Hub. Our group swells to nine as friends of friend’s join in, ending up almost fifty-fifty between locals and visitors.


There might be no financial cost to access the trails in Pisgah National Forest but there is a price to pay in the form of sweat equity as there always seems to be a one hour plus grind uphill before the fun begins. On today’s agenda Buckwheat Knob and Bennett Gap. Combined, we are looking at a 640m (2100 feet) elevation drop over 6.9 km (4.3 miles), but first, we have to pony up for the above mentioned sweaty price tag, which today is 11km long 590m up along Avery Creek Road.



Unlike the flow of Dupont, the trails in Pisgah are more like the flow of water, point it downhill and hold on. Turns are only inserted when absolutely necessary to avoid going off a cliff or hitting a tree. Stay focused, the roots and rocks are relentless, as are the smiles, what an awesome ride.



Two days into our visit and we are adapting nicely to local bike life. A few hours on the trail then back to the epicentre of Brevard mountain biking which happens to be where Asheville and Pisgah Highway cross. Here you will find two bike shops, The Hub and Sycamore Cycles, a brewery, a BBQ joint and usually a couple food trucks in the parking lot. But the most sought-after post ride real-estate in the area is a bar stool at the end of the mechanic’s workbench at the Hub, AKA, the Pisgah Tavern. Yes, my Canadian friends, down here bike shops serve beer.


There are about 140 km of trail in DuPont State Recreational Forest and thanks to today’s GPS assistance it’s not hard to find your way around, that said, it’s hard to beat local knowledge. We meet up with Jenna and Barrett from Red Woulf Mountain Bike Tours at the Fawn Lake access point for a morning rip on Dupont’s less travelled trails. When I say less travelled, it has nothing to do with the quality of the ride, just that at the more popular trailheads you might find yourself in the company of dozens. The ride begins with instant smiles as we drop into a downhill right off the bat, then it’s follow the leader, uphill, downhill and repeat. We skirt lakes, crawl under waterfalls and take in grand views. Jenna, Barrett, thanks, that was so good. The best thing about it, I didn’t have to pull out my phone or check a map just enjoy the ride.




Before we head back into town in search of a bar stool, there is one more Dupont must do we have to check off our list. Cedar Rock, as the name implies rock is the star of this loop as it traverses giant slabs of eastern slick rock. The ride is super fun but it’s the view from the top that leaves the long-term impression.


It sure feels like summer as sweat drips from my helmet and streaks down my glasses. We are half an hour into the climb and halfway into its length. Spring has sprung in Pisgah and it’s sunshine and short sleeves, our last day on the trails and it’s March in Brevard at its finest. Ask around, what is the best trail in Pisgah and it seems the variety of answers is equal to people asked. Rephrase the question to what is the most ridden trail, in which case Black Mountain filters to the top of the list.





The trail is broken down to the top, middle and lower sections and while the more popular plan is to the access the middle and enjoy the spoils of the downhill, we push on upwards. Presenting our plan to a local we met along the climb, his advice was “you don’t want to go there!” Yes we are aware that upper Black is more adventure than ride, as the gravel road climb ends, the hike a bike and scramble upwards begins. Our efforts are rewarded with spectacular views and then a long downhill run that goes from typical Pisgah, full on rocks and roots along the top and middle section, then finishes off with lower Black which has been sculpted into Pisgah’s version of flow, awesome.




No matter how many vacation days you have at your disposal when it comes to good times it’s never enough. March in Brevard, if you haven’t you should. Our four days just scratched the surface of the area’s riding potential but it did deliver what we were after, fantastic trails, good vibes and sunshine. A trip’s success can be judged by the first words you speak when it’s over. “Next time we should…” Yes Brevard, Dupont, Pisgah, till next time.

Notes From The Road
While you can ride Transylvania County year round but you can expect a few snow days during the winter months. By March, spring is well underway with average temperatures that are short sleeve worthy. A perfect time for us northerners to head south, avoid summer crowds and get an early start to the mountain bike season.

The area is well mapped and local advise is easy acquired. Hiring a guide is sometimes the best way to make the most of your time. The crew at Red Woulf Mountain Bike Tours and The Bike Farm will make sure you have an awesome time. Another option is attending one of the mid-week rides put on by Sycamore Cycles.

For accommodations, it’s hard to beat the mountain bike friendly Pilot Cove. If camping is your thing, I can't recommend The Bike Farm highly enough. They are within minutes of Pisgah and offer ready-made sites and “glamping” tents as well. Another great spot is Davidson River Campground, located just inside Pisgah. Prices are low and they offer all the services you'd need. At Ash Grove Cabins and Camping you can choose between cabins or camping. There are also several free campsites that are available in Pisgah on a first come, first serve basis, as well as a number of private property rentals suitable for small or large groups.

Special thanks to RSD Bikes and Brevard/Transylvania Tourism for the assistance in making this adventure happen.

I love that the world is discovering how beautiful and rugged western NC is.
Native NC people are not "locals only" types. We love sharing and showing others what God has blessed us with here.
We've worked hard to make this a place with cool restaurants, good beer and good music...not just for us to enjoy but you as well.
Come visit.

 I used to be that way. Now the trails are crowded with people who don't know what they're doing and don't respect the work put in by locals. They come here for a week, drag their rear tires all the way down Black, instagram some Oskar Blues and go home. I much prefer the empty trails of 15 years ago.

 @Alcan and others
I think the message is a little muddy in some of the responses. Those of us that live here are very friendly, outgoing, and welcoming. Many of us, myself included, are not native. As more and more people learn about the area (via word of mouth or articles), there is a massive increase in pressure on the resources. In this case, the resources are trails and the forests. Pisgah Area Sorba takes care of the trails but you also have other factors to contend with such as horse owners, hikers, stream sedimentation, logging (Mills River), and land managers.

The trails have changed and will continue to do so. There is a current proposal to change trail access, move some around, etc.There was a previous proposal to enact a pay to play system at DuPont.

I fell in love with this area 30 years ago and moved here in 2007. I, along with others, contribute to the problems. The home prices have skyrocketed, the traffic is getting bad, parking can be a problem at trailheads, etc. You can barely get anywhere downtown Asheville due to all of the tourists. Asheville is about 30-45 minutes north of Brevard but the hub of the metropolitan statistical area.

I don't know the correct solutions but I'm sure increased funding to the local trail organization (PAS) and community involvement would help. People that live here will continue to welcome outsiders with open arms and high fives but you also have to understand why some people cringe with more exposure.

 I rode Western NC for three weeks in March, first time visiting, and had an absolute blast! Did not get a single bad vibe from locals. Everyone is stoked on riding and excited to show you the goods! Also big ups to the Bike Farm. Cool operation they have going, highly recommended.

I start my job next month. Will be donating to Pisgah Area Sorba. And I will be returning (perhaps indefinitely down the road). Love this place.

 It’s a little sad seeing articles like this with no mention of the toll that the tourist economy has had on the footprint of these beloved trails. The Ranger District in Pisgah has lost a lot of its character in favor of moving masses of people. Rose colored articles like this don’t help. There is a huge plan in place presented by the FS that has the potential to remove even more character from these trails, I hope Brevard doesn’t become an example of what happens when too many people take...

 Realize that a lot of people don't have what it takes to even ride in Pisgah.

 A town becoming a destination is a blessing and a curse. Money comes into the community from tourism, but it puts more traffic on the trails. Same thing happened to the Dragons Tail when it bacame popular with car clubs and magazines. On a side note, the Black Forrest campground is family owned just outside DuPont and is bike friendly.
  • + 12
 I wouldn't worry about it. I've ridden these trails and 95% of the mountain bikers in the US aren't into this kinda riding. Since we (those of us on Pinkbike) are all a part of that 5% we tend to think more people do our type of riding than really do.

DOPE article, wish y'all had hit shuttled to the top of the mountain and came down Pilot and Black. It's a great ride. Farlow Gap is also a good one to hit if you really want to test your ability to ride relentless gnar!

 Oh chill Mcthrill. When your family out grows your house, you add on or buy a new one. So add on and fix the trails, or move.
I find it rather enjoyable when I run into someone from a different state or country.

I am very hopeful that the new forest plan will really help. There are parts I’m pumped about and parts, not so much. But either way it seems to be keeping riding in my neck of the woods. It will be different then ten years ago, and it’s really okay.

 @slayersxc17: Take 276 to the Blue Ridge Parkway, once on the BRP, drive toward Asheville but only for a few miles. Just past the Pisgah Inn motel on the Parkway, there's a pull-off to an overlook to the right. Take that pull off just up the hill and park there. There's a connector trail to the beginning of Pilot that is hiking only, but it's very short. Maybe 0.3 mi. There's about a 10 minute hike a bike, but you're at the upper most point of Pilot from there. You can then drop Pilot down to Yellow Gap, then traverse via Upper Buckhorn to middle and lower black. Once done, climb back up Avery Creek Rd to hit Bennett and you've descended ~4500+ ft but have only climbed about 2k. It's a blast if you don't have much time or leg energy, but still want to hit the best of the Brevard Pisgah area.

 It's National Forrest, not a National Park. It's not about "locals only" - It's about unrestrained growth and use and how that has a huge potential for changing the very nature of the trail system - a system made popular long ago because of it's unique character. That character is changing and my hope is that it's done a way to maintain some of the rawness that makes it special. I assure you that I'm very much a part of the problem as I enjoy the same trails listed in the article. However, there is a responsibility of those who chose to promote sensitive areas like Pisgah. This article does nothing to serve my community, in fact I see a missed opportunity by the author and more importantly Pink Bike by glossing over the elephant in the room of over saturation and instead we're fed another fluff piece about how cool Brevard is. It is cool, and I hope it remains that way for years to come.
  • + 3
 @plume: Brevard/Asheville is great in general. We make a trip once a year and will probably end up moving there in the coming years. I keep up to date with some of the forest service stuff, but I dont have a dog in the fight. It'll be interesting to see what trails are closed and how the existing trails are treated in the coming months. That being said, I have never had a bad experience with locals - one of the things we reflect on when we leave is how great the attitude is up there.
  • + 10
 Yeah, the comment wasnt about the community. It's about the trails. There's a serious need the forest service can't keep up with. It's great the community is thriving. The forest is getting wrecked. People coming and dragging their back break down all the steep good stuff.

The point is this........ Pisgah Area Sorba (PAS) desperately needs regular mention in articles, youtube channels, and word of mouth. PAS is who does the trail work, PAS is who funds the trail work, PAS is who the voice of the community is!!! They need your help wether that be financial, recognition in articles, or labor on trail days.

This is biggest steepest best riding around and everyone and their grandma uses it. I'm saying locals and visitors need to do their best to help. Or we're going to lose it.

 You’re reading well between the lines, and with respect this is nothing like AK. The south east has nothing like true wilderness as you have there. Our trails are easily accessed and have become very popular. It’s the shameless promotion with no regard to its consequences that I take issue with, not sharing the trails with Canadians. Pisgah is already at a turning point and my fear is that the promotions I see in these articles never bothers to address the severity of the issue. Like I said, it’s an opportunity missed to educate the tourists and new comers just how much is at stake...

Not even bringing my bike to drag my brakes. Soley driving to brevard to pee on your car. You around next weekend?
