Tsali has hiking, biking and camping. Best Mountain biking on the east coast. Loved the charm of Bryson City, lots to do and great places to eat

Fun mountain biking trails. Didn't care too much for the huge snake on the path though, lol! Don't know about the rest of the park, but the Right Loop trail was pretty.

Anybody reading this probably already knows about going to Tsali. The biking is great. There are some short trails and long trails. The longer trails have short cuts so you don't have to ride the whole loop. The difficulty isn't bad. It's challenging enough to be fun but forgiving enough that almost anyone can ride out here. Really nice views, incredible singletrack, some challenges but not really deadly hills (up or down). Go to the overlooks! They're hard work but the views are worth the trouble and the ride back down from them is crazy fun! Real hammerheads may be dissapointed because it's not hard enough, but the good thing is if you're at that level, you can really fly out here!

I did the Right Loop. Start next to the kiosk and maps so you don't have to start your ride with an ugly service road - leave that for the end and it's downhill.

A few moderately challenging climbs, I love riding here because there are sections where you can really let it fly and not worry about braking at all. Great scenery, too. Nice flowing trails. A really fun 10 mile ride, which is perfect for me. Took just over 1.5 hours. One of my all time favorites.
