Mountain Biking Downwinder

#185 of 534 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#5,375 in the world

The trail is narrow singletrack, tight and technical with very steep ascents and descents. Begins as overgrown trail on left of road. Continue up to a T, stay left to continue. Eventually trail starts to climb. Continue climbing to the top and then stay left on the way down to complete the loop.

    Great grouping of short, technical trails on the steep hill above the University of North Carolina, Asheville. The climbs are short and steep and not for everyone. The trails are narrow, tight and twisting singletrack. Link it to the trails across WT Weaver Blvd or Richmond Hill.
