Sights along the way include the American Tobacco Campus, 17 miles along the ATT, and the new bike-ped bridge over I-40.

This exclusive event is 95% off-road and is limited to 200 riders. Proceeds will benefit North Carolina Rail-Trails, the statewide nonprofit land trust dedicated to preserving rail corridors and creating rail-trails for public use.

Great news from Brevard! The Brevard City Council has formally supported the creation of the Ecusta Trail in their community. The rail-trail creation process involves many pieces, and the involvement and support of local government is a very important part of the puzzle. Congratulations to Brevard and the Ecusta Trail for bringing this wonderful project one step closer to completion.
Read about it here: Transylvania Times article 3-5-2015
April 29: Henderson County Tourism Development Authority votes to help fund Ecusta Trail with allocation of 1/4 of 1% of the County's lodging tax. This is good news and is expected to amount to between $70,000 and $80,000 each year.
