Rides That Use This Trail: Fletcher Creek


Passing through some open fields which have been used to grow corn in the past, the upper part of this trail makes a very fun downhill: it's fast, gradual, winding, and just steep and bumpy enough to spice it up. Fields can get overgrown with weeds in the growing season, though. The lower part, which joins with the Hendersonville Reservoir Road, is a little steeper, faster, rockier, and more technical - fun in a different way. Has a few creek crossings.

This trail follows old route of Fletcher Fields Road and has been re-surfaced in recent years, drying it out some. The trail is part of the Fletcher Creek ride.

Note: the log bridge at the intersection with the Spencer Branch and Middle Fork trails was washed away during the storms of September, 2004, making it almost certainly a wet crossing.

    Jordan M. said: Lisa - that's a great idea and something we've been thinking about how to do properly. For now, we recommend using our Best Hikes section if you need more guidance than the raw trail details provide. Thanks for the comments and it's something we'll work to improve!
