Riding around Asheville

New to the area. This is what I've found so far. Both of these are about an hour from Asheville. Would love to find anything closer, even dirt roads?

Pisgah National Forest north of Asheville "Brown Mtn"
FROM MORGANTON:
Take NC 181 north toward Linville; turn right on Brown Mountain Road (State Road 1405) at a small wooden church on right; OHV entrance road is about five miles east on the left side, 300 feet beyond a small concrete bridge at Forest Service sign.
Opens April 1. Sounds like you need to go in search of a permit $5 for those who bother with such things.

Nantahala - South East of Asheville "Wayehutta"

From Sylva take 107S to SR 1002 (Old Cullowhee Road), turn left. Travel 3 miles to SR 1731 (Wayehutta Road), turn left. Travel 3.5 miles (pavement ends), continue .5 miles, SR 1731 joins Forest Service Road 4650 and continues approximately 1 mile to the trailhead parking area.
From Franklin follow Hwy 441N, turn right onto Hwy 116. You will turn left to stay on Hwy 116 towards Webster. After turning left make an immediate right onto Old River Road (runs parallel to the Tuckasegee River). Turn right onto Hwy 107. At the stop light immediately ahead turn left onto SR 1002. Travel 3 miles to SR 1731 (Wayehutta Road), turn left. Travel 3.5 miles (pavement ends), continue .5 miles, SR 1731 joins Forest Service Road 4650 and continues approximately 1 mile to the trailhead parking area.

Brown Mtn.

If you are going to ride at Brown you would be well advised to get a permit. The Forest Service enforcement guy has been known to be less than gracious.

Thanks I'll swing by Moto Vicious. Maybe I can trade beer for a few GPX files. What does this ranger ride and how fast is he?
