A nice loop hike or bike within the city limits of Asheville. Leaving the parking area, the trail passes an information board and enters the woods. Continue straight ahead for a quarter mile to a four way intersection. Turn right. From this point bear left at all intersecting trails to make a loop of about three miles. Trail markers are often missing, so a map and a compass or GPS are recommended.
Poorly marked trails and numerous pig trails that dead end in the middle of no where.
Nice short hike you can run over and do in Asheville. There are three trails (blue, red, yellow), but they are not well marked at all. I've tried to hike the long trail three times now, and ended up on a different route every time! Be prepared to do the 3 miler, because you'll probably get lost and end up doing it anyway.
