Description: Our final route will be a local classic.

Immediately after our descent we begin climbing again from Rocky Bottom South Carolina up the local favorite HWY 178 back to the divide.  From here a rolling loop begins into the Frozen Creek area passing by Gorges State Park and gentle rivers.  Our final run home follows the East Fork of the French Broad River and rolling farm fields all the way in. A truly great finale to a 3 day training block!
