2017 Jim Schmid mtn bikes at Fire Mountain Trail System – Cherokee, NC

Ed Sutton owner of Trail Dynamics told me that he and his crew had just recently finished building The Fire Mountain Trail System in Cherokee, NC. I know what good work they do so I had to check it out. It’s less than two hours from where I live in Black Mtn, NC so made a day trip out of it. What a difference biking a trail that is designed by and for mtn bikers. Most rides are old hiking trails taken over by bikers or trails ridden in (rooty and rocky). I had fun biking up and biking down these constructed trails. Just plain fun. My old friend from Tallahassee, Florida Chuck Goodheart  designed the signs. Do yourself a favor, get over to Cherokee and smile.
