The Shut-In Trail is a long, historic route which travels from NC 191 near Bent Creek and Asheville to the Mount Pisgah parking area. George W. Vanderbilt, who built Biltmore Estate near Asheville, constructed the Shut-In Trail around 1890.
After the first pull, we waited at the top for the guys to catch up.
While Allen and I were ahead we broke off for some photos.
The trail is originally 17 miles long, but today was just a 10.5 truck. Wonderful for runners.
