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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 www.NCBiking.com.
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!
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.
