A tough, root-strewn trail that follows two mountain creeks.

Connor Woodruff

Overview

Description

Sycamore Cove starts and finishes directly on Hwy 276 (there are pull-offs that can accommodate a few cars across the road from both the start and finish).

The trail begins easily with a shallow stream crossing, but quickly becomes steep and technical with a lot of roots that will do their best to impede you. Soon after, there's a deeper stream crossing with a makeshift bridge that requires you to carry your bike. Continuing on, the trail becomes very steep with more than a couple hike-a-bike sections.

After it intersects with the Black Mountain Connector #127A, it meets up with the Grassy Road Trail #396 and continues climbing for a ways. Finally, the descent begins and the roots are out in full force! After the switchback, with the creek running by it, the trail becomes steeper and rockier. There are a handful of stream crossings and a bridge before reaching the end.
