Runner Notes

Watch for mountain bikers bombing the downhill.

Description

One of the classic mountain bike descents in Pisgah is one of the most infamous running 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 run down as well!
