Camp Carolina is based in Brevard which is a mecca for mountain bike riders, as we have over 600 miles of dedicated maintain trials in Pisgah-right on our doorstep here at camp. We also have DuPont State Forest just down the road with 80 mile of trails which is fast becoming a leading mountain biking destination in NC. It offers gentle forest roads to steep, technical, single tracks to ensure all skill levels are catered for.
We have a fleet of 30 premium mountain bikes in a wide range of sizes with front shocks and hydraulic disc brakes for extra stopping power when the hills get steep. We teach campers how to use the bikes correctly from the start, focusing on positioning, proper braking, gear shifting and maneuvering the bike before we hit the trails.
All our biking trips are organized for the age and skill level of the campers on that particular day. We run half and full day trips which often include a visit to one of the six waterfalls in DuPont for a quick cool off. We often shuttle the boys uphill so that they get to enjoy the downhill single tracks whilst focusing on improving their skills.
At the end of the camp session we take double overnight prize trip to Tsali State Forest on the edge of Lake Fontana for the boys passionate about Mountain Biking. After a hard day riding the trails the boys get to go for a swim then relax with smores round the camp fire before bedding down under the stars.
