Mountain Biking: Panthertown Valley

Panthertown Valley

Panthertown Valley is a great wilderness area in Cashiers open to hiking, camping, mountain biking and climbing. Whatever you do, if you venture into Panthertown, take a map. You can pick one up at Brookings (Shopping).

There are two access areas to Panthertown, Salt Rock Gap and Cold Mountain Gap. Salt Rock is by far the easier to get to from Cashiers. Take Hwy. 64 East from the crossroads about five minutes to Cedar Creek Road. Follow Cedar Creek Road about five miles to Breedlove Road, and take a right. Follow Breedlove another five miles to the end, where it becomes a gravel road. At the end of the gravel road, you will find parking and the trailhead.

As is the mantra on this web site, purchase a map before venturing into Panthertown Valley. Look for A Guide’s Guide to Panthertown Valley. The area is not gigantic, but the trails can be labyrinthine.

Staying on the bigger trails, you can explore Panthertown to your heart’s content.
