Cosa farete

We will meet at Ecusta Brewing in Brevard then head to the trailhead, a ~25 minute scenic drive including a bit of dirt road. 2-wheel drive vehicles will have no problem, the road is well-maintained. Carpooling is always an option, but depends on the group size. Starting at the trailhead, we will run a ~7 mile loop with several beautiful waterfalls and one of the best overlooks in the forest - Slate Rock. Towering over the Pink Beds Valley, the slickrock vista includes views of nearby Pilot Rock, Funnel Top Mountain and the distant high peaks of the Great Balsam Range. I would argue that the views are far better than John Rock, Cedar Rock, or even Looking Glass Rock. Its limited popularity is due mostly to its remoteness and difficulty to navigate. Many times, we have had the entire trail to ourselves. As we run, I'll highlight the unique flora and fauna along the trail and offer a brief history of Pisgah National Forest its ties to the Biltmore Estate. Afterward, we'll return to Brevard and enjoy a cold beverage and/or food at Ecusta Brewing at the entrance to the National Forest. I also include complimentary packaged beer from my friends at UpCountry Brewing (Must be at least 21). Alternatively, those staying in Asheville have requested to meet at the Ingles in Mills River to shorten the drive. If this is the case, we will instead visit Blue Ghost Brewing near Mills River.

Brendon

With 5 years of extensive van-based travels, I've logged well over 10,000 miles on the trail across the better half of the US and parts of Canada and Mexico. After a few years, I knew I wanted to settle in Western North Carolina. I've explored every corner of Pisgah National Forest and I know where all the best waterfalls and overlooks are, as well as the best trail running loops. I began my career as a trail and ultrarunner in 2015, with limited experience running until 2012. Since then, I've competed in several races including multiple 50-milers and one 100-miler in 2018. I spend countless hours on the trail in Pisgah and can frequently be found attempting solo 20+ mile runs in the forest - but I still know what it takes to start from scratch. As of 2019, I am the only permitted Trail Running Guide in Pisgah National Forest.

Che cosa è incluso

Cibo
I bring plant-based trail mix, snack bars, and other nutritional products to be shared among the group.
Bevande
I can include a handheld water bottle for up to 2 people.
Attrezzatura
I carry first aid and other emergency equipment, including water filters.

We will run along a fresh mountain spring with several small cascades, then climb to a beautiful slickrock overlook with killer views of Pilot Rock, Pink Beds Valley, and the high peaks of the Great Balsam Mountains.

Requisiti degli ospiti

Possono partecipare fino a 5 ospiti di almeno 18 anni. Trail running experience is a must. This is a moderate run compared to many trails in Pisgah National Forest, but may considered difficult to lesser-experienced runners.

Altri consigli

This run takes place on a mixture of old road beds and rugged singletrack, meaning some level of trail running experience is a must.
