Trail shared by Mark O'Neal

An old power line road that's mostly doubletrack from Cold Mountain Gap to Rye Mountain Road.

Description

The Powerline Road Trail is most often used as part of an overall loop in Panthertown or an out-and-back from Cold Mountain Gap. There are a couple of steeper sections before gaining the ridge, but mostly not too hard.
