Favorite place in the world. It's a "choose your own adventure" with all the optional trails. You can do 4, 6, 8, or 9 mile loops with ease. Great trail running

I've been here a few times when I visit Asheville. Always beautiful trails from easy to challenging, the run is always gorgeous.

Love the Greens Lick off of Pint Tree. Downhill trail you better be ready. If it is raining it can be treacherously fun.

A very nice system of trails. Choose easy or hard trails. My favorite by far is Ingles Field Gap and Deer Lake Lodge.

Great place for mountain biking if you're looking for some place close to Asheville. Has trails for just about every kind of rider...up hill climbs as well as some really fun downhill runs.

Bent Creek is a great place to go biking on beginner or advanced singletrack trails. There are lots of trails to choose from, but be sure to have a map if you've never been here before.

Gorgeous and wicked fun area to bike around. Greenslick is a great technical downhill that is a little different and sometimes even more difficult every time I've ridden it! The trails are maintained exceptionally well and it has never in my experience been crowded because of the sheer amount of trails. The trail maps are pretty unhelpful, however, ask for directions and just explore!

Beautiful area. For my first time on these trails it was a little confusing as the bike trails didn't seem to be marked clearly in a lot of places...compared to other trails I've been on. But, we had a great time riding in the area.
