Schoolhouse Ridge Details
Schoolhouse is a classic example of an old school trail in major need of some love. Most riders would never consider climbing this trail and many would not even call it a trail in places. The trail starts innocently along a ridge then begins to flex it's muscles with some stout climbs. These climbs will test your bike handling skills and will get you warmed up for the plunge to follow. After the final the climb, the trail nosedives down a narrow fall line in a series of deep trenches punctuated by drops, rocks, and blind turns. The technical moves in the final mile require a combination of expert DH skills, comment, and luck. Many early WNC riders cut their teeth and their bodies on this trail. Give it a go with the Woodruff Ridge and Wilson Ridge for a true Wilson's classic.
Find the upper trailhead on FS 4068 off of Edgemont Road. Nearly all riders will access this trail from Upper Wilson's Ridge (see description).
