Asheville mountain biking

Cedar Rock Mountain Biking Trail (Brevard)

Cedar Rock Mountain Biking Trail: Short but sweet, the 1.5-mile Cedar Rock Trail features a steep climb up large slabs of granite and tops out with killer views of Dupont State Forest. Take Big Rock trail from the top of the mountain for a fast, technical downhill over slickrock and single-track. We recommend a loop that includes Corn Mills Shoal to the Little River Trail to Cedar Rock Trail to Big Rock Trail. This loop is about 3 miles and can easily be linked up with other nearby trails such as Burnt Mountain, Micajay and Cascade Loop trails for a full day of around 25 miles of riding.
