The route described here uses a fire road climb to reach the top of Middle Fork. This trail is about 8.8 miles of fire road and 2.6 miles of singletrack. There are 2 gated roads
from the trailhead take the one on the right, Fletcher Creek Road (AKA The Never Ending Road).
It starts out gravel road then goes to doubletrack. You'll past Spencer Branch Trail around 4.5
miles, then Fletcher Creek Trail. The road will start to become very untraveled and remote
feeling with the road becoming over grown. Around 8 miles Middle Fork Trail will be on your left.
The trail has a little of everything, small drops, log jams, rock gardens, bogs and multible creek
crossings. At 2.4 miles turn right on Fletcher Creek Trail then cross a creek and the Spencer
Branch Trail. Continue on Fletcher Creek Trail it will dump you out on Hendersonville Reservoir
Road. Turn left back to the Trailhead or right to Hendersonville Reservoir for a break. It is a very
nice spot for lunch. If you want to spice up the ride turn right on Spencer Branch Trail. You will
walk some of this if your not a Pro. It will dump you out at the Reservoir.
