“A seldom-used, easy trail system located close to North Asheville, NC.”— Paul Haas email@example.com
The trails are marked but with small arrow signs (yellow and red), and if you are not paying attention, you may miss a marker and end up at the Buncombe County Landfill. The trails here can be combined for a ~2.5 mile (Right Loop and take the Barn Road back to the parking lot), ~4 mile (Right Loop and middle loop), or a ~7 mile loop.
The run starts at the parking lot with a small uphill following an old road (Barn Road). At the information sign, turn right onto the Right Loop trail (Red Arrows) and start a slow climb up for about a mile. The second mile is mostly level with some small uphills.
The third mile you cross over the top of the Barn Road, which will take you to the top of a small mountain, and then crosses over a landfill-maintained road to the M3 Loop (Yellow Arrows). This section can be taken clockwise or counterclockwise, as it leads right back to the same spot. The remaining miles are not bad, with a few places that provide a good view of the French Broad River.
