Trail Description
About this trail
The bottom end of Avery Creek can be accessed via FS 477, and the top can be accessed via the Buckwheat Knob trail, the Black Mountain trail, or the Club Gap trail.

Avery Creek descends for 3.2 miles from that 4-way junction down to FS 477 via some technical, rutted out singletrack--classic Pisgah style. Keeping with classic Pisgah style, there are several stream crossings and plenty of muck thrown in, but there are a few sections of smooth, somewhat flowy trail hidden underneath the massive tree canopy of Pisgah National Forest.

Review: there was some recent trail work to cut back some of the brush hanging over the trail, probably by the 3rd coast enduro guys in prep for the brevard enduro.....

Review: Pisgah has a lot of great downhills and avery creek among the best. This is really fun, it starts narrow with plenty of washed out drops typical to the region and then widens a "flowy" mid section before the gnarly descent continues, and then it eases out as you cross creeks at the bottom. Definately start from the top down and connect with either club gap or black mountain to get there.

Review: One of the best downhill trail sections in Pisgah. It is a bit of a haul to get to the top (I usually get there via Clawhammer Rd. to Black Mountain trail) but well worth it. Plenty of rocks and roots to keep in interesting but it all flows nicely down the mountain.

Review: One big rock garden, but a heck of a hike-a-bike to get to top.
