Mountain Bike! The Southern Appalachian and Smoky Mountains, 2nd

Overview

The southern Appalachian and Smoky Mountains are some of the oldest mountains in the world. They may not scrape the sky like the monsters out West, but in trade you get an unbroken carpet of stunning natural beauty: serene, old growth forests with generous shade, secluded coves bursting with wildflowers, craggy granite overlooks where Native Americans once kept watch, and gently rolling valleys that breathe out peaceful antiquity. Finding the perfect trails is an art in this landscape, and Mountain Bike! The ...

Overview

The southern Appalachian and Smoky Mountains are some of the oldest mountains in the world. They may not scrape the sky like the monsters out West, but in trade you get an unbroken carpet of stunning natural beauty: serene, old growth forests with generous shade, secluded coves bursting with wildflowers, craggy granite overlooks where Native Americans once kept watch, and gently rolling valleys that breathe out peaceful antiquity. Finding the perfect trails is an art in this landscape, and Mountain Bike! The Southern Appalachian and Smoky Mountains is an indispensable friend for any fat-tire Picasso. You get the most detailed information on almost 100 of the best rides throughout the mountains, including tours through the Great Smokies, Pisgah, Nantahala, and Cherokee National Forests, northern Georgia, the Foothills, and the popular Tsali Trails. Author Steve Jones knows his Appalachians, and he's ridden all over them to uncover trails for every mountain biker's ability and tastes. If it's good riding, it's profiled here. Each route profile features at-a-glance key information, a thorough ride description, a detailed trail map, helpful sources of information, proximity of important services, valuable commentary on elevation changes and possible hazards and a rescue index.

Read an Excerpt

My friend Bill has warned me about riding this four-mile loop of double-track and single-track in the winter. "How many pairs of shoes did you bring?" When I answered, "Three," he seemed satisfied. "You're gonna get wet," he went on to say. Sounds like fun, I said to myself. Just wish it were warmed than 20 degrees in the shade. After reaching the trailhead on Globe road, I pulled on my old shoes over wool socks. Sure would like a good long uphill at the state to put a glow in my bones. I tried to put ideas of wind chill out of my mind as me eyes watered from the wind. I could feel a deep-core chatter begin and regretted having left my extra layer back at the car. Has it been in the good ole summer time, I would have tried each and every water crossing, probably falling in at least half of them and loving it. But I took advantage of the low water level and picked my way carefully across, using strategically placed stones. Before I knew it, the last stream crossing has been made'with dry feet, thank you, Bill.
