Several areas are washed out but definitely still passable on bike.

Wish I’d read the review before I rode it today. Series of viscous mud bogs and rhododendron thickets that felt like a run through Mirkwood. Very eroded—doubles as a small creek.

Enjoyable descent, necessary evil climb out from Butter when Cat Gap is out of season. Definitely a blue by Pisgah standards.

We rode up this which was horrible. There is a nice waterfall though

Trail was kind of fun but more technical than a blue usually is because of some rather rutted drops. It is all in the shade though

Fun trail but not worth the effort to get to the trail and to climb out. Many better options in Pisgah.

Worst Trail EVER! I'd rather die in religon class than have to ride down this shit trail one more time. Mud pits everywhere! Downed Trees! Boring Downhills and everything a crappy trail contains

Trail Butter Gap
Butter Gap is actually open to bikes year round, incorrect to call it a seasonal trail. Cat Gap is seasonal.

I do not know why someone downvoted you, I submitted an edit saying the same thing. The section from Long Branch to Cat Gap is seasonal, however the rest is not:

www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/recarea/?recid=48318&actid=50

"The portion of the trail between Cat Gap Loop (#120) and Long Branch Trail (#116) is open to mountain bikes seasonally, from October 15 through April 15 only. This is to minimize safety concerns on a heavily used trail."

Hopefully the edit will be approved shortly.

Fun trail with many roots. They aren't huge but pretty rough on the downhill (on a low travel hardtail) at high speeds

Many mudpits in first half. Trees down just after the steep portion near the bottom. In general, this trail will have to be closed sooner than later. Significant erosion.
