Skirting the northwest side of Longarm Mountain in the Pisgah National Forest, Old Buzzard Roost is a spirited offroad trail for new and seasoned offroaders alike. Dense dark green laurels line the trail as it winds in and out, following terrain lines and climbing over 900' in total elevation. Each of its many twists provides a new experience, from rocks to climb over or mud to go through. This is no gravel road, and it is not a stand-alone trail either. You can combine this rugged 4WD trail with other trails to turn a short thrill ride into a multi-day overland adventure that should include Hurricane Creek.
