Coleman Mountain Panther Creek Loop

Coleman Mountain Panther Creek Loop

A wonderful bicycle ride loop in the northwestern end of the county. Begin at Sorrell’s Store, a “Bike Outpost”, in Jonathan Valley. Climb over Coleman Mountain before descending to the Pigeon River. As you follow the river into the Panther Creek community, your road follows the long gone footprints of the large felines once known as “Painters” The woods for the next 10-plus miles are lightly populated and offer long range views, especially when the leaves are off the trees. Soon enough you will be back in Jonathan Valley to enjoy the wide valley view on the way back to Sorrell’s Store. Ride begins at Sorrell’s Marathon, a “Bike Outpost” 3796 Jonathan Creek Road which is also US Route 276, north of both Waynesville and Maggie Valley.
