Mountain Biking Tsali Thompson Loop
#11 of 531 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#110 in the world
Thompson Loop, like Mouse Branch Loop, is more technical than the Right and Left loops at Tsali. Thompson has a lot of tight twisting singletrack and like all the trails at Tsali is fun to ride at warp speed. There are a couple of uphills that might sneak up on you though. The overall elevation change is approximately 300 feet, so riding the loops backwards is still fast and equally challenging.
