An all day epic through some of the best trails in the south side of Pisgah National Forest's Ranger District. Expect 6-10 hours to complete due to lots of hike a bike. If desired, can park at the horse stables instead of the ranger station, letting you pass your car to fill up water, etc. multiple times.
