Riding in western North Carolina? give a holler

Hey folks, Timm Muth here; glad to find your forum.

A couple of folks referenced my book, Mtn Biking North Carolina, by Falcon Press. Thanks for the press. But to be honest, the trails in WNc have changed a good bit in the 5 years since that last edition came out, especially with the hurricanes we had last year.

So if you're heading to WNC to ride - or are trying to decide on an incredible mtn biking destination, give me a shout. Since we've relocated to the very heart of the Smoky Mtns, we've discovered all kinds of new riding out here.

And just in case you're wondering, the Big Woods out here (Pisgah and Nantahala Natl Forests) are literally covered with trails. I can be at eleven (11!) different trail systems in under an hour from my shop in Dillsboro - that's 11 trail *systems*, not just trails. You could spend a month out here, riding every day, and not cover all the trails. Believe me, I've tried!

So gimme a shout at if you have any questions about riding in WNC, or call our shop at 828/631-1580. Or if you know of someone interested in guided tours, check out our Dirt Addictions site at

Lookin' forward to riding with some of ya. Come on out, y'all. Just know that riding here will definitely spoil you for riding the trails back home!

Remember - scars build character!

Thanks for dropping in. I do a lot of riding in WNC, and even though I am mostly a roadie, I do enjoy the trails of our fine state from time to time. Glad to have you here!

I'm in Maggie Valley quite frequently as my in-laws live there. I've only done road riding there, This summer I'm going to try to get out on some trails too, I'll be sure to look you up.

Honestly, you'll find some of the finest singletrack you've ever chanced upon out here. And tons of it. Very few bunny slopes, but tons of excellent rides, along with a handful of Oh-My-Gosh! rides. Come check it out - I promise you won't be disappointed.
