I like this as an alternate, techy singletrack climb to bypass some of the gravel climbing on Clawhammer Road.

Need to Know

You might see hikers or horses on this trail. If you choose to descend it, be aware.

Description

Less than a mile up Avery Creek Road from the horse stables, access this trail from a small roadside parking area to your right. The trail begins as a fairly flowy descent (for Pisgah) to where it intersects with Avery Creek Trail #327. Cross the trail (and the creek of the same name) and begin climbing alongside Henry Branch where you begin to see some classic, wet, techy, Pisgah trail.

Keep right when you see the intersection with Twin Falls Trail (hiking only, though you can take a short walk to see the falls), and the grade really begins to kick upwards. Unless you're a strong rider, you'll probably have some sections of hike-a-bike, but they're not too bad.

As you near the top, you'll be presented with a choice. You can hike-a-bike up the steeper hiking-only spur of the trail to join Clawhammer Road a little higher up, or continue riding.
