The Outdoor Guys talked about a trail over in the Brevard area. The Trail that Bill and his family did was the North Slope Trail (359). You can access it early in the entrance way into Pisgah National Forest. It’s just across the road from the Visitor Center parking lot at the Davidson River Campground entrance road. Head towards the English Chapel. There are several good signs leading the way.
The following is from the Forest Service Website. Bill B. checked it out and found that it was accurate. Head over and enjoy your hike.
3.7 mi – Moderate – Shortly after leaving the campground area, the trail forks; take the right fork. Continue past the Ted Seely Memorial trail spur, and the spur trail to a small historic cemetery, until the trail reaches the riverside, where an unsigned extension of the Exercise Trail (#344) will join from the right. (You may use this extension, and the Exercise Trail itself, to walk along the river back to the Art Loeb parking lot—a distance of about one mile.) Turn left (upstream) to stay on the North Slope Trail, which gradually leaves the river, then turns left and climbs steadily up the flank of North Slope Ridge. In early June, there is a beautiful display of Mountain Laurel along this section. Before reaching the crest, the trail again turns left, at its intersection with the North Slope Connector (#359A), which climbs steeply to the Art Loeb Trail. From this point, the North Slope Trail gradually descends the flank of North Slope Ridge on an old road, before ending at the campground amphitheatre parking lot. Turn right on the campground road and return to the Art Loeb Trailhead. This trail is open seasonally to mountain bikes from October 15 through April 15.
Approximate Elevation Change: 350 feet
