Fast and flow. This trail is on the smother side of Pisgah. Plenty of speed to be caught with minimal gnar. This route weaves in and out of open grass fields and woods before dipping down for two smaller creek crossings that can get you pretty wet if you hit them with speed. A little mid trail climb and you are nearing the end. The last downhill will let you go way faster than you should and has a bit more chunder than the trail leading up to this point. Plenty of opportunity to catch some air and rail some turns. A great addition to Spencer if you take a right at the gravel road at the bottom of Spencer decent.

      Down trees. See photos for location. I’m not from around here so not quite sure if the trees were on upper or lower as it’s all blurring...
