A trail that is great for berm practice.

Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

Formerly known as "Berry Mountain Trail," Horton's Hollar is now a single trail that forms a figure 8 loop with the Overmountain Victory Trail (OVT). The USACE has named this trail after Jim Horton, a Wilkes county native who has been the lead designer and builder of all trails at the facility. In Spring 2016, a one-of-a-kind flyover bridge was completed at the intersection with the OVT, where Horton's Hollar travels underneath it.

Horton has built a masterpiece of bermage here. In fact, if you ever needed a single trail to practice how you ride banked turns, this is the one. There are approximately 100 bermed-turns on this trail (they have been counted), stacked in several places with multiple in a row.

The Hollar provides stellar variety to rides that loop with OVT or Shiner's Run. There is good access to from Bandit's Roost or the small parking lot on 268.

FUN!
