Ecusta Trail Is A No Brainer

 

January 27, 2020



It was heartening to read that there was some positive movement towards a hike/bike Ecusta rail to trail. I had heard that the Brevard area was a great destination for Biking and Hiking, so, after moving here several years ago, I was disappointed to find that while opportunities are really good for serious technical mountain bikers, it’s not that great for us occasional bikers who enjoy both mountain and road Biking on less challenging terrain.

For those of us who enjoy road Biking, it is horrendous. The roads are narrow and winding and there are virtually no bike lanes. I cringe every time I see a road biker on the road in Pisgah Forest or any of the other narrow and winding roads in the area.


The Ecusta rail to trail is a no brainer. It would provide a wonderful place to mountain bike or road bike safely. The only disappointing part for me is that this process has been going on since 2009. At this rate, I doubt I will live long enough to see it come to fruition.
