Pisgah 5/26

Memorial Day Pisgah Trip

It looks like I will be heading to Pisgah on 5/26 for a 5-6 hour ride through God’s Country. If anyone is interested in joining, let me know. I plan to park near the horse stables on FS477 and going Clawhammer -> Maxwell Cove -> Black Mountain-> Turkey Pen -> S. Mills River -> Mullinax -> Squirrel Gap -> S. Mills River, -> Buckhorn -> (Left on and over Black Mountain all the way to the bottom and the road back to the stables.)
This will be 90% single track with a nice little fire-road warm up.

Sounds like we will have a group of 5-6 riders for Monday.
If you are not car pooling and want to meet at the trail head take I-26 to exit40 in NC towared Asheville Regional Airport (Left off exit) Follow NC-280 for about 30 miles until you get to 276. Take a right into Pisgah National Forest then go past the ranger station toward the horse stables. You will see signs to your right. Then there will be a gravel Fire road on your right labeled FS477. Take it until you see the stables on your right. Ride will be leaving around 9:30-10am.
Let me know if you are going.
Best way to reach me is cell: 803-917-5314
