Mountain Biking Flint Ridge

****   Add a review
#124 of 549 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#2,237 in the world

The first mile or so of this trail is a series of nine switchbacks that take you up a pretty steep face of the ridge. The top of the ridge has some great views of the Nantahala river with some pretty fast single track. You're rewarded for your hard work in the first mile with some pretty steep downhill on the way back home.

Although this trail will never compare to Tsali, which is 5 miles down the road, it's a nice change of pace and worth a stop if you're in the area to ride Tsali.

Rider questions

Q: Pets allowed?
A: Saw a gent with his dog on the trail yesterday. NOC has always been pet friendly, so I would assume the trails would be included.
