Trail shared by Chris Chaney

A grueling paved road in the high country of Powell County.

Description

Pilot Road is the one road I hate to find myself facing at the end of a long ride. It's a great section of road and a lot of fun, but if you're running on fumes this is no place to be. Lots of steep rollers are the name of the game.

This is a paved road, but it is narrow and winding and has little traffic. It passes through sparsely inhabited wooded areas and is far from any services. Make sure you have plenty of water and gas for your legs.
