Stage 1 - Looking Glass Loop
Tuesday, September 23, 2014:
- 28 miles. 6678 ft of elevation gain*
- Named for Looking Glass Rock - a nearly 4,000' tall piece of exposed whiteside granite
- Classic Pisgah singletrack! Squirrel Gap is a continuous 1.5 ft wide singletrack trail (at least that's what we call it) hinged to the mountainside for miles. This route also traverses the rugged ridgetop cliffs of the Black Mountain Trail.
