      The East-West Bike Loop is rated by many as one of the most beautiful and challenging mountain bike trails in the Southeast. It is open to both mountain bikers and hikers. Users travel from mountain ridge top to valley floor, through pine and scrub laurel thickets, upland hardwood and cove forests, by old mines, then waterfalls and rhododendrons along Hassler’s Mill Creek before returning up the mountain.
