Trail Description
About this trail
Jackrabbit is a very beginner-friendly trail network and features gentle ups and downs, and is very twisty and very fast! There are very few obstacles, and essentially no technical riding, and very little climbing. However, the flow of this place totally makes up for it!

I am a huge downhill, loose rock, obstacle guy, but this trail is a total blast! This is one of the most fun machine-built trails I have ever ridden!!

The trail system is set up with a central loop that all of the other trails branch off of. Consequently, it's very easy to navigate: just follow the main loop, grab one of the trails off of it, return to the loop, and keep going! If you keep turning in one direction, you should be able to ride pretty much the entire trail system.

It also looks like the campgrounds there are really, really good and really close. I drove by but did not go into them.

Review: Really fun! Lots of flow without many jumps or technical turns, but watch for hikers. Great for beginners and very well maintained and marked. The signage is awesome, nearly impossible to lose the trail here. SABA does a great job maintaining this trail.

Review: I love coming to this trail every time I'm in the area. There is nothing technical, but the flow is off the charts. The top of the biggest hill and the beach section have the best views and are worth the extra work to get there. It is also well marked and well maintained. I definitely recommend it!

Review: Positive: Variety of trails and just enough privacy even while crowded! The beach is also fun to picnic at after the ride;)

Negative: Gets a little repetitive for the more experienced rider, but still has a fun aspect to it. Downhill sections really doesn't allow for fast speeds because they come to an end so rapidly. Overall really nice for families with teens or children with strong endurance.

Review: These are fun fast trails. I rode them with my teenage son and it was perfect for him. The single track kept his interest and the short punchy climbs made it fun and challenging at speed.

Review: Absolutely wonderful trail. I've ridden it twice so far. It has good rhythm, and the SABA beach is just gorgeous.

Just don't ride it after a heavy rain. The mud and water tends to pool at the bottom of a speedy downhill ride, and will flick your back tire out if you hit it too fast. It'll suck the speed right out of you, and will cause you to climb more than you'd think.

Otherwise, beautiful trail.

Review: FLOW!!! These trails have lots of different types of trail to conquer from High Point's steep pitches and obstacles to SABA Beach's beach riding. Don't come here expecting a super technical gnar fest though.

Review: First time there. Coming from flat land down in SC, it was a great ride. Can't wait to learn it a little better. It's not to technical but has a great flow to it. Looking forward to next time.
