Buncombe Horse Range Trail is a 17 mile one way (no loop potential) trail. One end is on the S Toe River Rd & the other is on the Colbert Creek Rd. There is VERY little parking at those two ends as well as at a middle area to access, @ 1/8 mile north of the Parkway on Hwy 128 (that goes up to Mt Mitchell). All that said, it is a beautiful trail, with ample water for stock, gorgeous views, and cool in the summer being such high elevation.
BHT is a horse/hike trail, in the Appalachian Ranger District of the Pisgah Nat Forest.
