A great Pisgah descent.

Travis Williams

Overview

The upper section of Trace Ridge north of the Spencer Gap Trail #600 intersection towards the parkway is a hiking-only trail.

Description

This trail has a steep, short climb in the beginning up to the Trace Ridge Peak then an almost 1000-foot descent down to the Trace Ridge trailhead parking lot. It is mosly hard pack clay with loose rocks and large bolders mixed in. Lots of erosion on the trail creates a fun technical downhill some small drops. This one might not be as hard as other Pisgah descents, but it's still not for beginners.
