Panthertown Valley is a tangle of trails that lead to some rather unique and interesting places. I have been trying to piece together a route that hits the highlights in a logical way and did a fun half marathon route last weekend that comes close to reaching that goal. Starting from Cold Mountain Gap:
Panthertown Valley Trail > Devil's Elbow > Riding Ford > Powerline > BlackRock > Panthertown Valley > Wilderness Falls > Deep Gap > Great Wall > Big Green > Macs Gap > Little Green > Panthertown Valley
While no 13 mile route is going to have it all this one had a lot. Everything from rolling double track to tight and twisty single track, waterfalls and rock plutons.
