Mountain Biking Fontana Village

****   Add a review
#33 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#668 in the world

There are a ton of trails in the village, each of them labeled and fairly well blazed. We rode Brooks Cove trail and it was a blast. To find the trail, take the road down toward the banquet hall (past the round house) and head uphill on the road. You'll see a trailhead in between a couple of cabins: take this up the hill. Numerous options here, make your own loop and enjoy. You can get a good bit of climbing in depending on the loop you choose--more than you'll find at Tsali. These trails are also much more technical than the trails at Tsali, more akin to Pisgah, which is why Fontana has earned the nickname "little Pisgah."
