We went to NC to ride on our honeymoon last june. We rode Dupont on Monday, Tsali Tues, Pisgah Wed and  Black Mountain on Friday. If you like a technical trail with lots climbing Black Mountain is it! I think diving clear to NC to ride only 1 trail is a waste of time. There is tons of great trails in western NC so If you can make it that way make sure you make a week out of it! On our way down we stopped in KY and rode The Sheltowee Trace @ Laurel Lake. This a fast fun roller coster type of trail!

The only thing about VSP that makes BCSP better is access to trail from the campground.
Quit complaining and get out and ride.

Usually drive to Rangeline, Westwood or BCSP on my days off. I was going to Rangeline and break/hurt myself on the new expert extension but am driving to VSP Thursday A.M. to ride instead after all the print it is getting this week. Rode there 2+ years ago and loved it but have not been back. 
Rode Tsali several years ago and the best part was the awesome views north to Smokey Mtn Park.
If your looking for a free ride to VSP and want to go leaving at 9am and back by 4pm NE side of Indy.

We have a group of about 15 coming down from Michigan for the weekend May 4,5,6. plan on riding BCSP friday and saturday and now to avoid revokation we will ride Versailles sunday morning. Is there a race in the area that weekend that we need to avoid? The weather looks great and it should be a great weekend of riding.

No prob. It is the Drt point to point I believe. Not all trails are used if I remember correctly, but versailles is a great trail so have a good time!
There is also nebo, gnawbone, or valley branch if you want a more rugged experience and maybe some broken derailleur hangers .

A group of us have been riding Hoosier National every weekend since the end of February.
The Hickory Ridge trail system is becoming my new favorite trail system in Indiana. The Raw,Rugged ,mostly un-maintained trails and Brutal climbs, kick our butt every time we ride. 20 miles in there feels like 40 anywhere else.

I don't want to dissuade a trip to Versailles,  it is an excellent trail system with the same type of high speed flow as brown county,
 it is however about an 1hr 45min from BCSP,  for a change of pace I too recommend the hoosier national forest, valley branch or gnawbone camp.  All are within 10 miles of BCSP, All have steep climbs and descents and are more rugged than brown county.  If legs are a bit spent, after 2 days at bcsp,  nebo in hnf is close by,  doesn't have too much climbing, and is an out and back for 17 miles total, so it would be hard to get lost.  If you want more,  it's a short jaunt to hook into the hickory ridge trail system.

We are very fortunate to have trail systems like HNF, VBR and Gnawbone to supply a nice dose of kick ur butt riding.
 
That said, I also have a hoot railing the flowing, high speed stuff at VSP. I have to say, it's an embarrassment of riches. :D

We got a bit of loose rock but overall it is super fast and flowy. cant recall all the ruts you speak off but if they were there they are long gone now.

Any trail I can average 12+ mph on my SS IS super fast and flowy. Fo' sho' 8)
