2016 Jim Schmid bicycles 3.6-mile Point Lookout Trail – Pisgah National Forest, NC

The Point Lookout Trail is a section of abandoned Old US Highway 70 that the Pisgah National Forest converted to a paved trail. They have laid down a 10-foot strip of new asphalt over the old road. The trail connects Ridgecrest to Old Fort, NC and is a popular route for road bikers. Since it is just a few miles from Black Mountain, NC where we live I have ridden from home to Old Fort and back a few times. This time I took my camera.
