A classic Pisgah ride, this ride should take most riders between two and three hours to finish. With a nice warm up on a forest road climb then advancing on to singletrack at the top, riders will get a couple of nice steep pitches up and down before taking the plunge to Club Gap. At this intersection, riders will head straight past Avery Creek trail on to Bennett Gap. Bennett Gap is the go to downhill for most riders in the region and is sure to have something for everyone.
