Dual sporting around Asheville, NC

I'm new to the forum and looking for some good dual sporting areas around Asheville. I have a KTM 450XC with a supermoto set up along with the full dirt set up.

come on down to the Wedge on Wednesdays evenings (between 6 and 8) and you'll meet a bunch of folks that can show you around

Trying to find good riding around Asheville is like trying to find the wall of a barn................when you're inside the barn. No matter which way you go, you'll find it.

Here's some examples:

Hurricane Creek Rd. off I-40 at the 8 mile marker is a good one, Pinnacle Mountain Rd to Cedar Mountain , Horsepasture road to Jumpoff Rock overlooking Lake Jocassee, Max Patch Rd., Big Witch Rd off the BRP, tons and tons more!!

Thanks for the reply! I recently discovered a fellow inmate is a neighbor to me. We are planning on riding the Hurricane Creek ride via Hot Springs and Max Patch. If everything works out Sunday, we are riding Curtis Creek road up to the BRP. I'm glad you mentioned Pinnacle Mountain Road. I've been looking for that on on the map. I was not aware of Big Witch road. I will Google these.

I rode Bent Creek over to Mills River campground and out Yellow Gap road this past Sunday. I then went up the BRP and back home via 151. That was a good ride. Check out my ride report threads with photos in the Day Trippin forum.

I attended Wedge night last night with the wife. We also went to Prichard Park to "people" watch.

A few of us are going riding near Hot Springs Saturday and from what I've been told we're going to end up someplace in TN. I have to remember my camera this time.

Not formally yet, but yes, Pete is my neighbor; it is a small world. My work keeps me out of town more than I like but I hope to make it to Wedge Wednesday in a few weeks.

Where does Hurricane Creek Rd let out (starting at I-40)? Anything a bit closer to Asheville proper?
