Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is pretty tight but VERY rooty. This trail seems to be very overused and tends to get very wet after it rains. Good workout but be prepared to be shaken til you can't shake no more.

Review: As everyone has already pointed out, this trail is roughly 35% roots. I had a bit of wrist fatigue throughout as a result, but I'm a noob on an 11-year-old 26" hardtail, so my opinion is only about as valid as my suspension. ;) If you're going to come out to Greensboro, ride Copperhead or Wild Turkey (both Intermediate, and W.T. has some optional more difficult obstacles). If you're looking for beginner trails in the area, Blue Heron and Kingfisher are highly praised by the locals.

Review: Well, let's see... There are roots, roots, and more roots. In between the roots are some good sections of trail. Not much in the way of climbs though. As of 7/27/14 all the trees that had fallen across the trail had been removed.

Don't ride too aggressively as there are many blind corners and frequent hikers. If you want to ride aggressively, go ride Wild Turkey.

Did I mention the roots?

Review: This is a good trail for the beginner or casual intermediate rider. Very rooty with no vertical gain to speak of. Basically flat with a couple of very small gullies to shoot through. If you have a full suspension bike you'll be glad you brought it. The trail is well maintained with no rock, let alone loose rock or ledge. There aren't any logs to jump over, but a couple of places where you might hit your chain ring. Watch out for the entrances to the board walk bog crossings. Some of them are a little narrow at about 24inches. One in particular enters at a steep angle and begins as a log filled hole which is bound to get slippery when wet.
A very nice ride even if a bit of a bone shaker.

Review: Easy to get to and could be great, if not for all the ROOTS. I guess if you want a frustrating workout, this trail is for you. Great scenery though.

Review: Nothing Super Technical and the roots will jar your brains out, but the faster you go seems to smooth that out. Good views and decent length to the trail but It needs some TLC there were about nine trees across the trail that had to be climbed over or under. With a little work could be an enjoyable ride.

Review: A lot of roots, nothing special, relatively unkept compared to other trails, just wasn't impressed. Fairly short, much better trails in the area.

Review: Man, this would still be one of the best runs in Greensboro if it werent so washed out and un-kept. The roots are too much. But great terrain and great length. Too bad
