Cloud Mountain Sanitarium evolved after 15 yrs of riding around the pisgah nc area and fine tuning the sweet spot for road and mt. biking. We decided on Balsam Grove NC. A small little town at 3,000 ft. We picked this neat little town to start a cycling compound where cyclist (of all types) can come and ride right out the front door and do literally 100's of routes both road, mountain, and cross. You can pull out on your road bike and go from 3,000-6,000ft if you wish, 3,000-1,000ft into south carolina and everything in between. We are only about 5 miles from davidson river trailhead and dozens and dozens of other trails in pisgah and wayahutta forests along with being in the mecca for fly fishing, hiking, canoeing, hunting, etc.. We sit right in the middle of 100,000's of acres of national forest. You have unlimited choices really. This is a place cyclist come to get well (hence the name sanitarium) and go back to your day job in a little better mood. Currently we can hold around 10 people in house with RV site also at house and plans for more expansion to hold around 20-25 of your cycling friends. Hope you can make it down sometime. Opening scheduled for fall of 2016.
