Whatsup, Im from Mississippi and me and some buddies are planning a spring break trip to ride Tsali. Our spring break is around March 18/20. Will it still be too cold in that area for riding and camping? I know nothing about Tsali, Ive read the trail reviews but what do you guys think of it to those who have ridden it? Thanks

Tsali is great. Mainly rolling hills. Two loops. There is specific biking days so you'll want to check on those. It's still pretty cool that time of year as well.

For my personal opinion (like it matters ;)) I would go to Pisgah National Forst in Brevard, NC, about an hour or so further. The riding is so much better. Not to mention more riding than you can imagine. http://www.mtbikewnc.com/

It might be a little cold, the weather is back and forth here. There are four loops at Tsali. Mouse and Thompson are ridden on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Right and left loops are ridden on the other days. All of these loops are fast with not very much climbing.There are also some other rides not far from Tsali, if you wanted to set up camp and check out some other trails. Check with Smoky Mountain Bikes (smokymtnbikes.com),(828 369-2881) before you come up, we should be able to get some more people to go ride with you, and get you some maps to other places if you like, can also recommend good places to eat. Tell them OJ sent you, if I am not there. Also, a friend of mine that lives here is from Miss., Picayune?, not sure if thats how it is spelled.

Definitely check out mtbikewnc as mentioned above, they've got a TON of information on there. Here's a pretty recent writeup from one of our guys that's been down to Tsali a few times. I'm posting it because I took the second and third photo on the first page, during the 1st weekend in April last year... might give you an idea of what to expect as far as conditions go.
