Mountain Biking Farlow Gap

*****   Add a review
#25 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#537 in the world

This is one of the most technical downhills in Pisgah: very steep and rocky! The trail drops about 2000 ft in 3 miles then connects with the Daniel Ridge trail. To loop it, climb the road to Gloucester Gap and then turn right. It is long (9 miles) with the steepest part within the last 3 miles.

Best ridden as a loop from Fish Hatchery: 476 -> Glocester Gap -> Pilot Mtn Rd -> Farlow Gap -> Farlow Gap Trail -> Daniel Ridge
