“The potential is huge,” Appleby says. “Rocky Fork could be a regional or even national recreation destination. If you took the same density of trails present in places like Dupont State Forest or Bent Creek and overlaid it on Rocky Fork, we’d be looking at 100 miles of singletrack here.”

What may come as a surprise is that the environmental organizations responsible for protecting the Rocky Fork are expressing support for recreation and trail development at Rocky Fork.

“The Rocky Fork could easily be as popular as Bent Creek,” says Morgan Sommerville, regional director of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

Kamo, I emailed this link to my son, who hikes and bikes regularly in the Pisgah State Forest and is a member of one of the mountain conservancy groups in Asheville. Since he hopes to move near us in the JC area, this will encourage him, knowing there will be other trails to ride that are as fascinating and beautiful as Pisgah. Thanks for posting.
