We decided to take Cat Gap Loop counterclockwise, with the John Rock detour. According to my mapping software, this loop is only ~4.5 miles, but it felt longer. It's pretty darn steep in spots, and very rooty. Despite all that, we hoofed it and made good time. We took plenty of breaks along the way to try and capture just how beautiful the forest is right now, with the leaves starting to change. Hopefully, some of my pics do it justice.

Afterwards, we stopped at the Hub, then Pescado's for burritos and tacos, and then Brevard College to watch a bit of the soccer game. Unfortunately, they're not so good, with only one win so far this season, and only one all of last season.
They were losing 4-1 when we left early in the second half.

Tomorrow, I ride.
