Nestled in the top of the Oconaluftee Indian Village parking lot is a little something of a mountain bike anomaly. Great to pair with Tsali – Bryson City – Fontana Lake trails( the only other decent MTB Trail system in the vicinity). A mix of lung shredding climbs, giant berms, newly packed dirt,a uuuuuuge wooden berm, air-filled table tops and can definitely blow Ridgeline( Dupont Forest ) out of the “Fun Factor” water.

I knew I was in for something awesome when every mountain biker that came flying into the parking lot were beaming with big, cheesy grins. This is a fairly new system so get out there and explore and enjoy!
