The classic Pisgah mountain bike ride. A tour of all the singletrack that you have read about, this loop could take 5 to 7 hours and is considered very difficult. Singletrack climbs, switchback descents and beautiful hand cut trails are what has put Brevard on the map as a destination.
Note: Access to this ride is found at Turkey Pen trailhead on Tukey Pen Rd., off N.C. 280 (Asheville Highway) at the Henderson and Transylvania County line. You may need to park at the bottom of the gravel road; it is rough and may be impassable for cars with low clearance.
