Despite all the doom and gloom being written, Bent Creek trails are in fair condition. Maybe just the very extended length of the cold and wet weather made the trails appear to be in bad shape. Packed ice is no fun to hike or bike on.
The trails still need attention. Pisgah Area SORBA starts its Thursday-night trail-maintenance sessions April 1 at 6 p.m. Find the location at http://bit.ly/blRwf5, or look for our trailer. We meet every first and second Thursday of each month. You don't have to be a member or even a biker. You get a "biker buck" for each time you attend, which is worth $5 at any local bike shop. And you also get your name in the hat for the drawing for an I-9 wheel set. I was the winner last year. I am loving my spiffy red wheels!
