Tsali Recreation Area

The Tsali Recreation Area is part of the Nantahala National Forest and its 39 miles of trails suited for mountain bikers and horse-back riders, as well as hikers. The 4-loop system offers a variety of landscapes. You can climb 1-foot wide rugged paths or travel flat, well-beaten roads. Hikers may travel the trails any day, but mountain bikers and equestrians, the primary users, are kept separated by alternating use of trails. A schedule is posted at all trailheads. There is a fee for mountain bikers. http://www.ncnatural.com/NCUSFS/Nantahala/tsali.html
