Description

This is the main trail within Bracken Preserve. Beginning at the parking area at the end of Pinnacle Drive, and connecting with Forest Service road 475-C in Pisgah National Forest.

This trail features 1000' of elevation gain from the trailhead to the high ridge which marks the USFS boundary. The beginning of the trail is tight and features several sharp switchbacks due to the narrow conservation easement granted to allow access to the Bracken Preserve property.

Bracken Mountain Trail is marked with blue blazes.
