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!

Great route. The sign at the trail said that Horton's was 4.5 miles - which feels more accurate than the 3.2 miles listed here.
