Review: Fun machine built trail system with good flow, legit downhill no hike a bike. You have a couple of uphill options starting w a 900' climb then 3 downhill, one being a one way downhill treat, Kessel.

Review: Fire Mountain trail system is a blast. I loved the climbs they can provide a great workout. Kessell Run is a fast and flowy and my favorite part of the mountain. My wife is a beginner and had little problem riding most of the trail system without walking. I ended in the parking lot with a huge smile on my face. It was very worth the trip to Cherokee NC!

Review: Great flowy trails! Try biking all the way to the tower on top of the mountain for a great view and very challenging ride. Kessel's run is my favorite because of the table tops and rock garden, but all of the trails have their pros.

Review: Incredibly well done, pro-built trail system with tons of good flow. It's relatively small, but definitely check it out if you're in the area. Trails are wide and relatively new with giant berms at the many switchbacks. Everything starts with an 850ft climb, but the ride down is worth it. Kessel Run is the best non-bike-park downhill I've ever ridden, all smooth berms, rollers, and well-designed table tops. It's like Ridgeline in DuPont SF, but smoother, with real jumps, and 50% longer.
