The Mills River watershed is a large and popular area for mountain biking. Stretching from Bent Creek Gap in the north to the Pink Beds near Davidson River in the south, and bordered by the Blue Ridge Parkway to the west and NC 280 to the east, Mills River has the largest collection of trails of any area in Western North Carolina and many of the trails have a truly backcountry character. This includes trails near both the North and South Forks of the Mills River. Developed National Forest trailheads, located within the Mills River Trailhead as defined for this site, include Trace Ridge (also called Wash Creek and Fletcher Creek), Laurel Mountain, and Turkeypen. Many loops can be made from these trails and connecting gravel roads. Highlights of this area include the Hendersonville Reservoir and Dam (in the Fletcher Creek area), the North Mills River, the South Mills River, Pilot Rock, and miles and miles of spectacular and challenging backcountry trails leading to them all.
