Mountain Biking Tsali Mouse Branch Loop

*****   Add a review
#37 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#719 in the world

Mouse Branch and Thompson Loops are the more technical of the Tsali trails, nonetheless, these trails are equally fun and fast. There is also significantly more elevation change on Mouse Branch Loop. There are some gradual uphills that tend to be near the top of the mountains in full exposure to the sun, but the views of Lake Fontana make it worth all the sweat and work. A really great trail when combined with the Thompson Loop.
