From the team (and pro athletes like Neko Mullaly!) that brought us the eMTB playground that is Kanuga Bike Park comes an all-new, shuttle-served park called Rock Creek.
Founded by Neko and backed by Dave LaMond (who funded Kanuga, too), the new park sits on 300+ acres of prime North Carolina forest, backing up to the legendary Dupont National Forest (aka Cane Creek’s proving grounds).
Five trails are open now, ranging from beginner-friendly to extreme downhills and freestyle sections, featuring a mix of natural features, jump lines, and built trails.
An onsite shop provides bike rentals, parts and gear for sale, snack, and a full-time mechanic.
Top to bottom, there’s about 800 feet of elevation change. The trails, like those at Ride Kanuga, have been designed and built by Neko and the Pisgah Trail Company with progressive features to help riders develop new skills.
It’s open year round, and day passes run $50-55, Monthly from $95, Season Passes from $449. All prices include shuttling on their custom-built bus with bike trailers. Trails are only open 10am to 5pm, Friday to Sunday, with shuttles provided during open hours. No access is allowed at other times, including self-shuttling or pedaling. In fact, access to the top is ONLY allowed by shuttle. Camping is available nearby at Rock Creek Campground.
