Mountain Biking Butter Gap / Trail #123

****   Add a review
#24 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#457 in the world

The right (western) fork, which is open to mountain bikes, leads to FS 471D, which some riders use as part of a large loop; otherwise, they must backtrack down Butter Gap Trail. *The portion of the trail between Cat Gap Loop (#120) and Long Branch Trail (#116) is open to mountain bikes seasonally, from October 15 through April 15 only. This is to minimize safety concerns on a heavily used trail.
Approximate Elevation Change: 1000 feet
Blaze: Blue
