I recently rode the newly opened WCU trails and I can say I was highly impressed. I rode solo and I had a blast! We live in Asheville but the in laws live in Waynesville, and there is nothing close to there unless we decide to make the trek to Tsali or Noc. This is much more convenient. The trail was pretty much empty on a Beautiful Saturday afternoon. I parked in the HHS lot. Trail starts out with a pretty decent 5-10 min climb and I was definitely warmed up when getting to the top. Trails were great ridden in either directions, fast flows, tons of jumps, switchbacks, and berms. There are some pretty moderate climbs along the way, but nothing killer. Recommend riding all three loops, they are worth it. I had so much fun I turned around and rode the other direction. Big props to the trail designers. These trails are definitely intermediate, nothing too technical, just fun from start to finish. I will be going back often with friends.
