Macon County North Carolina Bike Trails

Moss Gap Area

Length: 3.0  miles

Because much of the timber in the Moss Gap area was harvested during the late 1980's, there are a number of vistas along FS 323. Remaining forested stands are young. FS 323 has a hard packed gravel surface.

From Moss Gap cycle northwest 0.5 mile where Turkeypen Gap road Joins FS 323. Continue on FS 323 past several old roads. At the intersection of two roads on the right and one on the left, stop and make a half mile detour on the gated road on the left for a view of Western Carolina University campus. FS 323 continues down to a turnaround near Wilson Creek. A road from the turnaround leads to a camp site on the Creek. Another road leads to a wildlife area.

From US 64 and Ellijay Road (SR 1001) south of Franklin in Macon County drive northeast on Ellijay Road 9.6 miles to SR 1522. Or from NC 107 and Tilley Creek Road (SR 1001) south of Sylva, drive southwest 6.6 miles on SR 1001 through Speedwell to the Jackson-Macon County line. SR 1522 is on the Macon County side. Moss Gap and FS 323 is 1.2 miles and 200 feet above SR 1001. The bike route may be started at SR 1001 or at the Gap.
