Cove Creek - TRAIL

Cove Creek - Trail, Brevard, Carolina

A good pump pedaling up FS 475-B until you reach FS 225. After that it's all downhill, not too technical, and a lot of fun.

This isn't the same as Caney Bottom. Mountain Bikers need to start saying "Cove Creek" whenever they meant Caney Bottom. Caney Bottom, technically, is off-limits to bikes. The entire loop up Caney Bottom Creek and down Cove Creek, plus the extension up to the Forest Service Road, used to be called Caney Bottom Loop and only the west half was open to bikes (at least on some maps). Now, the trail that follows Caney Bottom Creek is called Caney Bottom, and it is not open to bikes. The trail from the Forest Service Road down Cove Creek into the group camp is called Cove Creek, it's open to bikes, and it's a great ride. This is actually less confusing than it sounds! A few log bridges force you to dismount during the excellent downhill. There is one really buttery sweet banked curve and a few smaller ones.

Customer Service

Same as original review. Just be sure to keep right at the intersection with Caney Bottom trail and you're all set. Don't poach Caney Bottom unless you want Cove Creek closed to bikes as well!

This trail is the same as the Caney Bottom trail. I think the Park Service went in and restructured the trails (Cover Creek and Caney Bottom) Anyhow, they are the same system and are awesome. You get a good warm up pumping up 475b, but it's all worth it when you hit the single track. Be sure to finish with davidson River trail. Going back on the road sucks

Customer Service

from fish hatchery, go Left. 475b is a short jaunt on the right. At the top, take 225 to the left. Ride all the way to the bottom and take Cove Creek trail thru the gate to the left.
