Mountain Biking Thrift Cove

*****   Add a review
#50 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#1,071 in the world

Start riding the trail at the back of the parking lot. Go about 0.1 miles and turn right up Thrift Cove trail. Follow the red blazes and turn left at the intersection with Grass Road. On the way back down, take Black Mountain trail (down left, not right) and follow the white blazed trail to the bottom. Be sure to catch some air on the whoop te doos after you pass Thrift Cove trail again. These are probably the best jumps I've seen and there are five in a row there. Plenty of time for recovery, lots of speed. I went back and rode these from the parking lot again and again. So much fun. About 750' of elevation change.
