Overview

Pisgah has earned a growing reputation for having some of the best trails in the country, and this five-day, fully supported, endurance event delivers an unmatched sampler platter of some of the best singletrack in the country. The course includes the East's most rugged trails. Come sample spring riding in Pisgah National Forest with rhododendron tunnels, picturesque creek crossings, incredible leaf colors, and rooty, rocky singletrack. After spending a week getting to know and appreciate the bounty of Pisgah National Forest, you won't want to leave.

Description
