Horse Cove Gap is a 12.2 mile loop trail located near Horse Shoe, North Carolina. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for mountain biking.
We hiked it (rather than biking) & it was great. Very pretty. Meanders along side a beautiful stream. Easy to moderate level. We took the dogs to run, but there was a moderate amt of foot / bike traffic on a pretty Saturday.
Long gradual trail... Great riding... Great mountain views when you get to the top...
