An exhaustive day combining long fire road climbs to very technical singletrack.

Adopt These Trails!

Overview

If you're looking for a taste of Pisgah without biting off a full day of extremely technical singletrack, this ride features Black Mountain in its entirety with a tough climb up Clawhammer Road.

Need To Know

Prepare for approximately 2 miles of hike-a-bike when starting Black Mountain. I always bring along some moleskin to ward off blisters on my heel.

Description

Starting at the Pisgah Ranger Station, turn right onto Highway 276 (busy highway most of the times). Turn right on
