Pisgah National Forest

Description

The divided force of Overmountain Men riding under Shelby and Sevier departed their camp site at North Cove on September 30 and proceeded uphill and over a ridge through today's Pisgah National Forest toward a rendezvous with Campbell's men along the Catawba River.
The certified segment of the OVNHT follows US Forest Service Trail #308 and Road #1238 from its trail head on Old Linville Road 2.3 miles north of North Cove School Road.
