Mill Ridge Loop - TRAIL

Mill Ridge Loop - Trail, Hot Springs, Carolina

Drive to where Hwy 25 passes under the Appalachain Trail overpass and take the gravel road to a designated gravel parking area located one mile from Hwy 25.

The ride begins north out the parking area up a gravel road through a forest service gate. The forest road continues a gradual upward climb for less than a half mile and then levels out and turns east where one can see views north to Rich Mountain. Soon thereafter, the forest road turns south and begins a long, gradual downhill. During the downhill, keep right at an unmarked road junction and you will reach a single track trail on your right at about 2.5 - 3 miles. Turn right onto the single track and climb up a fairly technical ~1 mile stretch until you reach a gravel road. Turn right on the gravel road and return to the parking area.

If you prefer singletrack downhills, ride this loop counterclockwise.

This trail is poorly marked. If you ride it clockwise starting at the gate beyond the trailhead parking lot, you can easily miss the right turn onto single track trail going back uphill to complete the loop. The turn onto single track was marked only by pink surveyor tape tied to a branch on Oct. 2 2016. However, the double track portion of the trail is easy and scenic.

Ride the trail counter clockwise from an unmarked gate on the Appalachian Trail so you go downhill on the single track. Turn left at the bottom of the single track.
