Just past North Mills River Recreation Area parking lot, make a right onto Wash Creek Road, which is now paved for the first 1/4 mile or so. Follow this for several miles; this is FS 479 although a sign at the beginning used to say "1000". Turn left onto the first un-gated gravel road which has a concrete low-water bridge, and follow this 0.5 mile to the Trace Ridge trailhead and parking lot.
Great trail, some challenging climbing before nice bombing downhill...Thank |
Fast! It gets steep and eroded in sections, but overall it's a fast, fun descent. Nothing too technical.Thank |
This trail is incredibly fun. Getting to the top requires a long gravel climb but once you go down, holy crap it's fast. Probably one of the fastest descent I've done in pisgah. The top has washed out sections that you can rail and the bottom section after the gravel road that cuts in between is very flowy. I don't know why the description says it is seasonal because it is definately open year round according to all the maps and people I've seen use it.Thank |
