I have been riding the Pisgah area since 1995. This is the best MTB riding in the southeastern United states. This trail area has a little bit of everything. However, most of the Pisgah trails are intermediate to expert. If you are looking for what MTBing was like in the good ol' days before banked corners, smooth trails and man made jumps this is your place. Yea, you will definitely find spots that are hike-a bike but the majority of the trails here are ridable. Laurel MTN, Black MTN, Avery Creek, Clawhammer Road, Bennetts Gap, Sycamore Cove, Buckhorn Gap, Cove Creek are all worth the time and the effort. Now, if you are looking for a MTB park experience this is NOT that kind of place. This is how MTBing use to be. I love this place.
