Mountain Biking Tsali Thompson Loop
#14 of 534 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#121 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.
