The Estatoe Trail is a relatively flat trail, spanning just over 5 miles. About 1 mile (northwest end) follows the old Carr Lumber Company railway corridor and extends into the Pisgah National Forest up to the Davidson River Campground. The south end of the bike path occupies about 0.5 mile of rail corridor.
The northwest portion follows the scenic Davidson River, where the Estatoe Trail connects to another trail leading to North Carolina's Mountains to Sea Trail.
You'll find another 1-mile-long, multi-use trail along Gallimore Road, largely financed by Safe Routes to School funds, which will ultimately be connected to the Estatoe Trail.
The bike path has an asphalt surface for most of its length, except for the northwest 1 mile extension into the Pisgah National Forest (packed crushed gravel).
The bike path provides several access points to earthen-surfaced nature trails (foot traffic only) frequented by birdwatchers.
Parking is available about mid-trail at the Sports Complex (324 Ecusta Road, Brevard, NC 28712).
