This is an oasis where you can fully immerse yourself in the mountains with epic riding, awesome people and dangerously delicious food.

Here are 6 reasons mountain bike lovers should definitely book a getaway to Mulberry Gap, an experience you’ll never forget.
Friendly & Knowledgable
The first thing you’ll notice when booking your trip or arriving at the front door is that you’re now part of the family. Mulberry Gap is family owned and operated with all the employees living on site so there’s always someone there to help you out or just talk with about your ride that day. This is a way of life for them not a job and if you’re doing something you truly love you’re truly happy and it shows.
Amazing Homemade Food and Craft Beer Selection
Don’t want to get-a-way to the mountains to relax and still have to do all the cooking? No worries. All meals at Mulberry Gap are cooked from scratch and personally planned based on who’s coming to dinner. No leftovers from yesterday or anything like that just awesome food for everyone. The peach dessert and ice cream were to die for. Don’t worry if you have dietary restrictions just let them know before you arrive and they will make sure your are taken care of, remember your part of the family while you’re here. Your trip to Mulberry Gap has the option to include breakfast, lunch, dinner & dessert. There’s also no better way to wash down dinner or hang around the fire with friends than with a cold beverage from the “Craft Beer Cooler”. A crazy awesome selection of brews from around the country with something for everyone for sure. The problem won’t be if they have anything you like but if you’re going to be there long enough to drink it all!
Camping, Cabins and Hot Tubs
Bring your own tent and pitch it along the small brook or reserve one of their small cabins with A/C or heat if you prefer, it’s your vacation spend it how you want to. There’s even group camping sites and cabins if you decide to bring all your friends. There are 2 outdoor hot tubs to relax in after your ride or just chill with friends in after dinner. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing. The amenities don’t stop there, the bathrooms and showers are top notch and the Signage will keep you laughing. The “Barn” features a large screen TV, foosball, corn hole, and board games if you’d rather keep your mind busy versus relaxing outside.
Top Rated Singletrack and Shuttles
If you are coming for a mountain bike get-a-way there better be great biking right? They wouldn’t have built here if that wasn’t the case. The trails and scenery are spectacular. The staff will help you plan your ride and provide detailed maps. Grab a shuttle to any number of locations in the area based on your skill level and trail length desire. Go all the way to the top and ride Mountaintown Creek trail to Bear Creek to Pinhotti 2 for your downhill fun or add in Pinhotti 1 if you’re looking for some climbs to work those lungs and “earn the downhill” as they say. The shuttles are well worth the money as the price is per vehicle.
Better Your Skills with Get-a-Way Clinics
Bring some friends or make new ones while you better your skills and enjoy an awesome weekend. It’s not work if you’re having fun and tearing up the trails. Mulberry Gaps offers clinics throughout the year in Men, Women and Coed formats. The clinics are kept to smaller sizes so everyone can benefit no matter their skill level. Clinics are offered ala-cart or with all the accommodations above. It’s all about you.
The Mulberry Gap Experience
We’ve traveled a good bit biking around the country. We’ve found epic trails to ride, great place to camp and cooked up some fantastic meals along the way. But we’ve never found all these things in one place until now. Do yourself a favor and book a long weekend at Mulberry Gap Get-a-Away to ride, relax and have a great time like we did, you won’t regret it and you won’t duplicate it anywhere. All you have to do is book the trip the rest is taken care of by staff at Mulberry Gap!
We loved loved Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way. The bike friendly vibe, iconic trails, craft beer, and homemade food made this the place to ride, stay, eat, drink, and play. From the moment we arrived to when we pulled out of the driveway we felt like we were family not customers. The family style meals meeting new like minded friends and then enjoying a beer with them afterwards made it feel like home. Relaxing in the hot tub immersed in the beauty and peace of mountains was pure nirvana. We didn’t want to leave and were instantly trying to figure out when we could make it back and bring all of our friends. Great trails are great, an amazing biking community is priceless.
