Buying women’s mountain bikes is not that different from buying mountain bikes for almost anyone. So as part of creating the new site, we want to take the time – and make use of the skills of the writers we work with – to go back and document the history of this project so far, so that anyone discovering Dark Mountain online can get a fuller sense of what it is and what it has done.

Don’t think for a minute the park is the only attraction as Western North Carolina is an outdoor adventure paradise with options that include world class white water rafting, phenomenal single track mountain biking, nail biting motorcycle drives, adventure thrill-seeking ziplining, rich culture experiences, unparallelled mountain golfing, stunning waterfalls, serine mountain stream fly fishing, and the list goes on.
