I just got back from an amazing weekend of camping & riding at South Mountains State Park in Connelly Springs, North Carolina. This is hands down my favorite place to camp and ride, the campground is clean, the trails well maintained, the scenery outstanding and the mountain air fresh. I’m not really sure why we go anywhere else. We delayed our trip by one day because Friday brought with it over an inch of rain and chilly temps. We were a little worried about the shape of the trails given the amount of water dumped on them, but we had nothing to fear. The rest of the weekend had crisp mornings and pleasant afternoons. Fall riding at its finest.
