Headed out to park at Pilot Rock trailhead. Gate was closed at Yellow Gap trail on Yellow Gap road. As far as I know this isn't a seasonal closure. I assume it was still closed from the manhunt going on in Pisgah. He's been captured everyone, no worries.

Let's be honest. This is Pisgah; there are going to be trees down and this is the most raw mtbing you will ever see. learn your bunny hops and log jumps. Rip it!!!
