Description

One of the classic mountain bike descents in Pisgah is one of the most infamous hiking climbs in Pisgah when paired with the Star Gap Trail. A solid and steady climb with a few short downhills just to give you a quick break. Good views at spots along the trail as well. Continue on an old road to your left after entering a field to head over to the Toll Road and Blue Ridge Pinnacle.

It is super fun to hike down as well!
