Review: Rode this trail this past Memorial Day Weekend and I must say it's an Epic ride with the climbs, switchbacks, rock gardens, flow and the amazing views!! We shuttled up to the top and worked our way back towards Bear Creek where it actually spits you out at. To do the shuttle you have to have a gate code to get to the parking, so luckily one of my local friends got that set up for us since I do not know who to contact to get that. If your near Chimney Rock and can get to this trail, I highly suggest it. This is one of my top trails I've ridden in NC. ????????????????????

Review: To ride weed patch trail you begin at the buffalo creek parking lot on buffalo creek road. Bring your climbing legs. The first 5 miles gain 1500 feet and are flowy with lots of berms and switchbacks, it's rideable if your legs and lungs hold up. The grey rock overlook marks the half way point and is a good regrouping/resting point. The character of weed patch changes from this point. For 3 miles, the trail has more relaxed climbs, multiple boulder features (flapjack rock) and several rock gardens aka Humvee sections. Think pilot rock. The final push (800 feet) to eagle rock begins at old apple wagon road. It's steep, technical and rocky with some switchbacks to ease the grade. Look for a set of granite stairs on your left that lead to the cave and base of eagle rock. Definitely worth visiting. Eagle rock is the top and you survived. Enjoy the views, rest and prepare to shred all that singletrack you just paid for.
