You’ll climb Cove Creek Trail and some old forest roads before a thrilling, rocky downhill on the west side of the Daniel Ridge Loop Trail. This 12-mile route includes about 1,500 feet of climbing.

  11. While there are no truly “beginner” mountain bike rides to be had in the Pisgah National Forest, this combination of Black Mountain, Sycamore Cove and North Slope is one of the best Pisgah loops for first-timers. It’s a classic warm-up for those who’ve already spun their cranks at DuPont or Bent Creek.
