Pisgah Forest Ridin'








_anatic screwed with this post: so he can find the dang maps without fumblin' all over the internets.


Went campin' last week in the Pisgah National Forest. Left Wed. about noon an rode south over Crabtree Mountain, through Canton, NC to the Blue Ridge Parkway.




From there I headed down to Cove Creek (off FS475) an unloaded. Stopped at the trail head to the base of Looking Glass Rock on the way into town for supplies.



Finally back an with everything set up it was time to go play.

On Cuttle's Secret Road (FS229).





Stopped at a parking area an hiked in to where Farlow Gap Trail crossed. Yes I could get in there, NO I would not recommend it!

The wild Azaleas were still blooming up there.



Then rode to Cathey's Creek Falls.





Then back to camp. More later.

Thur. I met Aarrff about 9:30.



He showed me all around his back yard, but the only place we stopped was at Horseshoe Rock.



Fri. I took it easy, then road to Paradise Fall an spent the afternoon swimming an laying around in the sun.





Sat. morning we walked up to the falls on Cove Creek.



Then later went to Courthouse Falls.







Spent the rest of the afternoon laying around on the rocks at Cove Creek then stayed up 1/2 the night keeping the fire company. Sun. dawned an I realized I was in NO shape to try an keep up with the FF on the group ride out of Mills River. So I pulled every thing out into the sun to dry, got packed an took an easy ride back home. It was a great time, but is there really a bad time to be in the woods?

I SOOO wanted to meet up with y'all Sun., but I was beat! Took till 1:30 to get packed. I wasn't really alert enough to be riding so I took it real easy through town an out to the house. I was back in Cove Creek with a bunch of non-ridin' friends or I would have at least ed as y'all went by.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I won't be able to make it up your way until this summer but I will definitely be asking someone to show me around.
Anyone going to the road runner rally in Maggie valley 6/11-6/14

Actually had stuff to do but blew it off an went ridin' instead.

With all the rain we've been havin' I wanted to see how high the water was on Hurricane Creek.


Pretty deep!

So since they were already wet they decided to see what was really there.


While the rest of us waited patiently.




No, we're not commin' across, y'all gota come back.


Goin' back to get the bikes.


Right through here, don't want to hit that rock.


Yeah, that one.


Yup, I got that.


Love that smell.

Went back to Cove Creek again, where this started.

Had a small issue with the new rocks at the first creek crossing:



It rained Thur. afternoon an on an off till Fri. afternoon so not much riding except in to town for supplies. However we did manage to do a little grillin':


Sat. we got out an road to Rainbow Falls:

150 ft. drop, for scale look for the guy in the red shirt leaning on the tree.

Went on up to Turtleback an slid off a few times:






From the bottom:


On the way back to camp, Terri takin' pics:











That's about it for this time, didn't get the camera out much.
