Regarded as one of top 5 mountain biking areas in the US, Tsali Recreation Area is one of our favorite off-road riding destinations here in the Southeast. Tsali provides an outstanding variety of trail conditions to suit all but the super gonzo riders who want “technical and ‘nuthin but technical.” The trails are all, for the most part, what we considered to be rider friendly. That is to say, there is very little terrain that we have encountered at Tsali that cannot be navigated by an off-road biker. The area is maintained by the US Dept. of Forestry and it is well managed.
