Trail Descriptions

Daniel Ridge: A continuation of Farlow’s rockiness on one side, steep rolling terrain with lots of creek crossings on the other. You’ll ride the creeky side of this trail during the race.

Cove Creek: A flowy intermediate trail with tons of roots and creek crossings. You will ride this trail at the end of the race.

Butter Gap: This seasonal trail is a local favorite with sections that only locals can clean. Slick, rooty singletrack at its best through rhododendron tunnels paralleling Grogan Creek all the way down to Picklesimer Fields.

Long Branch: A technical, sometimes steep climb through rhododendron and laurel thickets back up to FS 475.

Davidson River Trail: An easy flowy trail paralleling FS 475 down to FS 475B.
