I'm looking for some new outdoor/adventure trip ideas. Anything from mountain biking, hiking, paddling, road biking, or whatever outdoor activity that you enjoy. What have been your favorite NC trips?
Here are two of my favorites:
Mountain Bike Adventure
Day 1: Mountain biked Squirrel Gap/ Turkey Pen - pisgahareasorba.org/2010/… Got sketchy half way through as the rain/mud made the trails really tough to ride.
Got a beer at the Hub and met some local MTBers were a blast to talk to.
Grabbed a bite to eat in downtown Brevard at the Square Root.
Camped at Davidson River Campground.
Day 2: Drove along Pisgah Highway, checked out the Fish Hatchery and went on some of the waterfall hikes
Camped out at the Core Banks. Not super adventurous but a really fun experience. I've camped twice there and the second time, a group of drunk guys on an ATV came over to our tent in the middle of the night. They were harmless but you're in the middle of nowhere so it sketched my wife out a bit. Also, it can be tough to sleep if the wind is howling or if you're sensitive to light (from the lighthouse).
