Review: A very fun well maintained trail. When many other trails in the area are closed come here and ride while staying dry.

Review: Very well maintained and signed trail system. We were traveling through the area but took the time to do the Tortoise, White Tail, Flying Squirrel, and Coyote loops. Much of the tread showed heavy usage and with good reason. These trails were a lot of fun, staying mainly on the contours but with some challenging climbs. Hope to try the more technical Copperhead Gap if I'm ever in the area again.

Review: Several trails here to ride and most are fun considering its about 18 miles total.
The Tortoise trail is a great warm up trail and flows really well, smooth and not that rutted. It then connects to the White tail trail and then a rider can take the copperhead and then Flying Squirrel. My favorite trail was the Flying squirrel as this trail is very fast and has long long curves that you can really crank and just cruise once your up to speed. Copperhead is not for the faint of heart and will humble even the most expert rider . I found myself huffing and puffing on that one.
Caution on the white tail trail and the two bridges as I was nicely surprised by a hornets nest under the bridge in which I was stung several times. So just keep your speed up across the bridge and don't stop for pics unless you want to get stung.
The other trails I will not mention as they were pretty rutted out and for a hard tail bike, you will be shaking your tooth fillings out.

Review: Very well marked and maintained trail. I stopped by here on my way between Atlanta and Charlotte. I rode most of the loops however, had to bail a little early due to time. It was then that I realized that "Granny's Climb" is not the easy way out but rather refers to the granny gear which is required to hump your way up the lung busting hill.

Review: This is a really fun trail system. Its got just enough miles to make a good day of riding. The only complaint is I wish they would add some advanced terrain and features.

Review: This is one of my most favorite trails to ride. It can be as long or short as you want. It is well marked, and daily directional so that the ride you do on Monday will differ some from the ride you do on Tuesday.

My favorite portion on the trail is the Flying Squirrel. It's a smooth fast downhill that is an absolute blast. Of course, if you go down that means you must go up, and the up hill is a good workout and challenge.

Be prepared to get a good cardio workout, and lookout for the roots (there's a ton of them). This is a great trail, and it is well maintained. Definitely a gem in Oakwood.

Review: In town for vacation and was able to sneak out and ride this great trail. Flowed great and was easy to follow except for the start of White Tail Trail at the bottom of Granny's Climb. The rest of the trail has great signs but not at this spot. Finally found the trail to the right just down the creek. Definitely recommend this trail if you are in town or live nearby. The local members do a great job of taking care of these trails.

Review: Lots of climbing but you're defiantly rewarded for the climbs with lots of fast flowing singletrack. I normally ride white tail and flying squirrel it's about 11 miles and 1200 feet of gain. Nice trails for all levels though. Can get really crowded on the weekends but the trail is big enough that you're not meeting a lot of people on the trail.
