North Toe River Out & Back

This is a good recovery ride after riding the mountains, or if you prefer some easy spinning and seeing how many Great Blue Herons and ducks you can spot. It is relatively flat and follows the North Toe River and the Cane River, where it is generally cooler on hot days.

To get to the ride start: From the flashing light in Bakersville, go about 5.5 miles on NC 226 N and turn onto NC-197 S. Go about 4.5 miles and turn right when you see a sign for Green Mtn onto Toe River Rd. Park across from the big brick church which is next to OC Whitson Store.

Starts in: Yancey County, NC, US
Distance: 22.4 mi
Elevation: +777 / -777 ft
