    It was almost a washout with the whole pouring rain the whole drive up thing, but we worked it out. Since we didnt' want to trash any trails, we just chose the rockiest trail we knew and rode that. We drove up to the base of Pilot Rock trail, and since we were low on time we just hiked up the descent then turned around at the top. It was nice and wet but the trail is literally almost all rocks so no worries. Heres some cool pictures.

    Looking glass falls, notice all the rain on my lens.




    The bikes were soaked by the time we unloaded but the rain had stopped.



    We took pictures on all the cool sections as we hiked up, so this tour is bottom to top for those of you that have ridden pilot.

    This is a really cool rock section. Pisgah is awesome.





    we got higher up and it started to get really foggy, it was really cool up there.







    Lots of bare rock up there on pilot.



    The mist pictures were taken way up near the top of pilot rock, so from there we descended down through all the other stuff on the trail. Its one of my favorites.

    It wasn't too cold up there, just wet. It was a good little ride for sure, we were warm until we got up to the very top.

    5th one is the best, I love seeing you guys in DIRT RAG.

    I really want to come and ride down there. I wish I had money this spring to do it.

    crashing at a trail near you...
    hey tpirate...i was in greenville tues and rode paris mtn
    rode up from amphitheatre including that damn hincapie 'wall'
    then hit busey (sp?) ridge, climbed back up
    did the mountain leg loop
    then hit busey ridge again
    not used to all that climbing, but can't wait to hit that trail when its clear. all the deadfall was a bummer but i could still see the potential of the trail, especially around the backside of the lake, and the descent down to the lake too
    will definitely make a trip out there again
    pisgah looks like a blast as well
    as always great pics :thumb:
