Big Rock, Cedar Rock, Little River and Burnt Mountain Mayhem

BRth

Yesterday, I picked up my bike, that has had a new crank set, chain and cogs fitted, a big thanks to the Guys at bike shop  The Hub, they did an excellent job. I had planned to do the "Black Mountain" Trail in the Pisgah State Forest.

The trails I did today are in the DuPont State Forest. With what it seems like 100's of short trails in this forest it was very easy to put a loop together.
