Trail Description
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: I rode this trail 2 days in a row while I was in the area. The trail is well marked which I always appreciate not being familiar with the trail. The leaves had been blown off of probably 80% of the trails. I went to the Bicycle Post bike shop in downtown Greenville. Nice folks and they gave me helpful advice. I signed the waiver there, but found that there are waivers at the trailhead. There is also a trail use few of $3 per day. The first time I rode the trail I found myself hiking a lot because I couldn't see the drop offs or I lost momentum on the climbs over roots. There are tons of roots!! It's a fun trail, though. It has a few (what I call) "oh crap!" drops. All of those cool bridges that you see a photo of at the top, don't exist anymore. All are rotted out, but they don't interfere with the trail. The second time I rode it, I had a blast! I only hiked 3 spots where I couldn't negotiate the roots. It's worth a trip! Thanks for maintaining the trail so well!

Review: Tons of roots, can't really get any speed anywhere, no flow, I do ride it often because thats the only option here in eastern NC. Needs to be maintained better

Review: surprisingly good trail for Eastern North Carolina. lots of roots and some flowing areas. Can be tough to get through for beginning riders. fairly well used and maintained. Generally a lot of fun. Local so I ride it often...

Review: Closest trail near Wilson worth riding. Wish it was maintained better. Sometimes the weeds get the best of it on the back trails.

Review: Went over the bars near the beginning on a short but fairly steep incline. Shoulder still in bad shape since that crash in 2013. Knee swelled up like a melon. Had trouble breathing for a couple of days. Rode it out with my buddies, Masterclean1 and others though...dammit!

Trail is good for eastern NC, lots of roots, though. Better trails in Raleigh.

Review: For eastern NC, this is excellent. Never thought I would have found this on the flatlands of Greenville, but I'm glad I did. This trail is extremely technical with its roots and tight turns, but it's tough to have any flow it, so speed is limited. That being said, I found myself wanting to come back here time and time again. Bottom line - it's fun, and a great way to get out on your bike.

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.
