Transylvania County North Carolina Horse Trails

Buckhorn Gap Trail

Pisgah National Forest

Length: 4.6 miles
Rating: Moderate

Buckhorn Gap Trail begins as a fairly steep trail as it climbs from Avery Creek to Buckhorn Gap. Several stream crossings have log bridges. A beautiful side trip to Twin Falls is worth the extra short walk.

Horse riders and mountain bikers should access Twin Falls from the upper end of the loop. This trail is for hiking only, so you must tie your horses or walk your bike. Between Twin Falls Trail and Buckhorn Gap, watch the trail signs carefully because there are three sections that have alternate routes for bikes and horses, to protect fragile areas and log steps. After passing Buckhorn Gap, the trail follows the logging road for 0.5 mile before dropping down gradually to the South Mills River. Blaze: Orange


You may access Buckhorn Gap Trail from either Avery Creek Trail (one mile from the lower trailhead) or South Mills River Trail 2.5 miles from the gagging station.
