Special Note

All 3 routes are very remote. Cell phone reception is not to be expected. Riding alone is not recommended. Unleashed dogs are common in the country. Pigg River Ford should not be attempted at a high water level. This crossing at Jacks Mountain Road and Pigg River Road can be fast-flowing and deep.
