Old Fort is definitely on the move. Surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest, it's quickly becoming a favorite of mountain bikers and hikers.
After a ride or hike, it's easy to refuel with a stop at Hillman Beer. The Hillman and Parker families partnered together and created a cool, creekside craft brewery and restaurant space. The former Parker Hosiery building has taken on new life with the addition of Hillman, Mill Creek Mug, Roots Salon, Greybeard Realty, Arrowhead Gallery & Studios, Kitsbow Manufacturing, The Outlet, and opening soon is The Old Fort Ride House.
Mill Creek Mug is a locally owned coffee shop and another example of local partnerships working to create exceptional experiences. They're serving Dynamite Roasting coffee, local bakers' sweet treats, teas, and more.
Opening in late summer 2020, is The Old Fort Ride House. This cool space is offered by Kitsbow, a well known athletic wear manufacturer. Begin and end your ride here! Updates will be posted on their site. https://www.kitsbow.com/pages/old-fort-ride-house
