Tsali Trails Map
by Jim Parham
With over 40 miles of single track, western North Carolina’s Tsali Recreation Area, where trails wind their way over rolling terrain along the shore of Lake Fontana just across from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, has been a major Southeastern mountain bike destination since the 1980s.
This waterproof, color topo map shows routes for all four of Tsali’s loops, and includes elevation profiles, the trail schedule for bikes and horses, and information on the USFS campground. It even suggests nearby forest road alternatives for riding when it’s too wet at Tsali.
Ten percent of net proceeds from the sale of this map go to Nantahala Area SORBA, the trail advocacy group at Tsali Recreation Area.
