About This Trail

This trail is private--trail permit must be obtained from Bicycle Post bikeshop in Greenville prior to riding (don't worry it's worth it). Trail is 10 mile loop. Very good trail to flow through with speed. Moderately technical in places, but nothing impossible even for beginners. A few climbs/downhills, log crossings, creek crossings--a little bit of everything. There is even a little "trick" section with a teeter totter, big log piles etc... Probably best trail east of 95 in NC. Races are held here on a regular basis. Visit Bike Post website (www.bicyclepost.com) for race schedule and more info.

Review: This is one of those trails I love to hate. It keep calling me back. It has so much variation. Some easy and some extremely difficult but to me it has just the right mix to make it enjoyable and a great work out.
I wish it was better maintained and like the previous review mentions, the maintenance has fallen off in recent years.

Review: The ECvelo/Bicycle Post trails are some of the most technical trails in NC. It's a boneyard. There are more roots there than any other place I've ridden. It has some nice climbs and descents along with some tight cornering.

There is a lot of new vegetation growth due to the recent (a few of years ago) farming of the trees in the area that can hamper your speed.

As of this review there does need to be quite a bit of trail maintenance done. You can see where it has falling off over the years.

Review: Pretty good flow, even with the heavy rooted areas. The Swamp Trail area was really fun for me. Good trail for a good work out.

Review: Great trail system for the area. Swamp loop is the main trail and best maintained; it has lots varying terrain and elevation change. The other trails are good too and most branch off the main loop. Technical trail although it has enough flowy spots to keep it from feeling like a grind. Lots of roots.

Review: Trails were great although some of the obstacles need maintenance. Some of the bridges in BC Loop were rotting need repairing, just minor touch up work.

Review: Awesome trail, as of late October, riding waivers and $ deposit box were available at the trailhead. Thanks to Bicycle Post bike shop for the maintenance of this trail system, that is in all honesty, a riders playground!! Sweet man made bridges and obstacles, good Singletrack, fast and flowy!. Something here for everyone. Stopped here on way to OBX from Atlanta. Just wish it was closer to home, but we'll be back!

Review: This is a very fun and challenging, in places, trail. Most of the trail is wooded with and is very pleasing to the eyes. It has several field entrances for races, which also act as bailout points (look for signs). The trail is very well maintained with a dedicated crew (the Bicycle Post).

Review: Great trail had a good first 8 miles until we got to the sea-saw section and broke my ankle due to the fact I didn't have enough speed and had to bail off of it! Other than that it was great, looking forward to riding it again once I'm healed!

Review: Been riding this trail every couple of months when I'm in the area for the last few years. I loved it from the first time I rode it. Don't worry that it's in the flat lands. It's a great little trail and gets changed quite often. I live and ride in WNC and look foward to riding it when I travel down that way.

Similar Trail: If you like this trail and come to the mountains, try the Bent Creek trails.

Review: Ride Post trail about once a week, the trail is in great shape with great direction signs. I enjoy riding the creek loop more advanced part. The trail has little jumps and a couple of big ones and one gab jump over a little stream, pretty cool looking. I think this trail is a must ride for a avid mt. biker.

Review: About 10 miles of nice single track with a lot of small jumps and a great skills area in the middle. Also, very cool use of pallets to make an otherwise unusable area ridable.

Review: Rode these trails for the first time Sunday during a 6hr endurance race. When I was planning the trip down for the race I kept thinking that these trails could not be exciting or technical at all because of the lack of mountain or even hills. Boy was I ever wrong. There were no long climbs but the terain constantly changed going up and down quickly and constantly, then adding the tight twisty sections, technical features (man made), and a few roots thrown into the mix made this a really fun trail. I would recomend this set of trails highly. The guy and gals in the local bike club (East Carolina Velo Cycling Club) and Bicycle Post Bike Shop put on a great race.

Review: I was the original submitter of this trail (John Public), but for some reason I cannot find my login nor does my old user name seem to exist now. WOW, things have changed. After graduating college and moving from Greenville adult life forced me into a 4 year vacation from riding. Now that I am getting back into it, I decided a must ride trip was to revisit the good ol' Post trails. I lived out here from 1999 - 2002 while in Greenville. At first I didn't even recognize where I was. Short Bridge road is now paved, and the land where alot of the trail was has been logged. I pulled up to the trail head, check out the info, and paid the upkeep fee. A few minutes later, I was off re-living sweet memories. Anyway, the trail is almost perfect. I would say that it is better now that it was when I first submitted it here. The trail flows but still has some of the technical sections to keep you on your toes. The best part of the original trail has been preserved (tracing the swampline) and gives for some excellent views while out there. More "trick" section exists now than ever did if that is your thing. Anyway, I can't say enough good things about the guys (I assume Eric and crew) that constantly maintain and build this trail making it one of the best in all of NC in my opinion. This is the best type of trail, it is never closed due to rain (annoying trend in Raleigh area), and night riding is allowed. I highly recommend everyone who can check out this trail. If you haven't been in a long time, then even better reason to go. Enjoy.

Review: This trail is AWESOME I've ridden it 12 or more times now and there seem to be new additions every time I go! If you like big air you can find it here, if you like small climbs and fast desents this is the trail for you. Some parts of the trail are getting worn down and more and more roots are being exposed but the only make it more of a chalenge!

Review: Amazing trail given the areas general topography. Descent climbs and quick decents, mildy technical, but generally a great ride. I rode this trail several times as an agreaaive beginner and had little trouble, yet, as an early advanced rider, I am still enjoying my time riding on this trail whenever I get the chance.

Review: This trail has been constantly expanded and maintained by the MT bikers of EC Velo (www.ecveo.org) With recent (2007) additions the trail is now nearly 9 miles long with many challenging sections and somewhere around 600 ft of elevation per lap. Trail is in great shape, drains well after a rain and is never closed. Open to members of EC Velo (www.ecvelo.org) or at the local Bicycle Post shop or you can pay per ride to help the club pay the landowner for the annual fee he charges for trail use. There is a cash box at the trail head for day fees. Cars without a current EC Velo membership card or daily trail fee are subject to towing. Have fun but help the club pay for keeping this jewel of the east open to all of us.

Review: Trail is currently 8.5 miles of flowing singletrack. Recent additions have been made due to area logging and these loops are still being ridden in but are still lots of fun. Trails can be a bit confusing but it's hard to get lost. Tighter and more technical than most E. Carolina trails the BP system is a lot of fun for beginners through experts. Several nice play areas and quite a few jumps. Definitely worth a trip to Greenville.
