South Mills River
South Mills River features an extensive trail system, including the popular Black Mountain Trail. Turkeypen Gap Trail is considered by many to be one of Pisgah’s toughest trails, and Squirrel Gap Trail is a favorite with mountain bikers. Hikers, campers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and anglers cherish the wild streams and trails. One of the top trout streams in Southern Appalachia, South Mills River is recommended for wild and Scenic River designation and could become the longest wild river in North Carolina.
