Mt Pisgah Bicycle Ride

About

(47.1; Strong Intermediate and above) This sister route to the Cold Mountain Loop also has a classic climb to fabulous views from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Reward yourself with a meal or a snack, and yet another great view, at the Pisgah Inn. Check your brakes before the steep, technical drop into the Cruso area and a journey that continues beside the East Fork of the Pigeon River. The valley miles will get the snap back into your legs as your ride draws to a close. Ride begins at the Canton Recreation Park on Penland St / NC 215 in Canton.
