Boone / Banner Elk area. Suggestions?
I'll be up in that area with the family for a ski trip. Since I much prefer biking to skiing, any suggestions on places to ride are appreciated. I will be bringing both road and mtb. I don't mind driving a little ways away to get to an excellent ride location, maybe within 45 mins. or so.
I have looked on Trails.com and mtbikewnc.com, but most of the ones listed there seem much farther west.
What are your best road routes and mtb trails around there?
