  1. The legendary Kitsuma downhill is worth all the climbing at the beginning of this loop ride; it's one of the best mountain bike descents in the Pisgah National Forest.

  2. Bent Creek Experimental Forest is, without question, the most popular destination for Asheville mountain biking. It's located a mere 20 minutes from downtown Asheville, and is more beginner-friendly than the nearby Pisgah trails.

  4. You've got options in the Trace Ridge / Fletcher Creek area; get lost in the maze of wooded double and single track, score some sweet singletrack descents and expect to get a little wet!
