Trail Description
About this trail
This is described as a 9 mile loop from the trailhead for Fletcher Creek. From trailhead parking lot, ride back down gravel road. After concrete bridge, turn left on Wash Creek Road (FS5000). After proceeding up hill on FS5000 for about 2 miles, turn left onto Spencer Branch (watch for gate off of FS5000). Turn left onto Trace Ridge for about 50 feet, then take a right back onto Spencer Branch for some steep downhill. Spencer Branch dumps onto Fletcher Creek Rd--turn right on this gravel road. Turn left onto Fletcher Creek trail and prepare yourself for some sweet, fast singletrack that weaves in and out of dense forest and open meadows. You will cross several creeks. At Fletcher Creek, several trails intersect. Proceed straight on Flethcher Creek Trail, which ends at Hendersonville River Road. Continue straight on this gravel road back to the Trace Ridge trailhead.

Review: Really good fast flowy trail. It isn't as steep as the nearby spencer gap trail but it still picks up speed. My favorite part is the open meadows that you rarely see in mtb trails out here in the east coast. Make sure to start from the gravel road (Never Ending Road) and take it all the way down.
