Trail Description
About this trail
Highland Trail Loops have six loops for mountain bikers. These trails may be short but both beginners and the more advanced rider can enjoy them. There are some good downhills and a lot of switchbacks for practicing technique. I have also heard you can ride from Lake Crabtree to Umstead State Park. Other activities at the park include picnicking and shelters, fishing, boat rentals, etc.

Review: This trail is super well maintained, the majority of the trail is fast and clean with some roots to break up the monotony. It's shorter than most, but is an excellent place to learn and sharpen some skills. They have parks with some jumps lines, a pump track and skinnys. Overall is really nice.

Review: I'll give this a 4 because of how fun it is for where it is. This is a fun twisty trail. The builders here did well with what little elevation there is. Well marked trails, skills areas, a pump track and even a dirt jump area give this small inter-suburban trail high marks.

Review: This is a fun little trail and great for beginners. It's well-groomed and smooth with a few obstacles. It can get crowded, especially after 5pm on weekdays and weekends. Try the gap jump on loop 6.

Review: A nice little ride. Nothing real challenging or super technical, but the trail flows well.

It's a great place for beginners. I bring my 11 and 12 year old sons here. they have just moved up to 26 inch bikes.

Review: This trail is just really... average. Not a whole lot to get excited about, though the skills area in the middle of the trail system is fun to session. Connect to Umstead for more mileage.

Review: Sad I don't have more time to ride here. Hard packed and leaf/loose pine straw make it difficult to maintain speed in turns. Trails are pretty wellaintaimed but do need some TLC in section 5 technical area. Large wash out with no room to bail if you wanted to. Watch your speed until you become very familiar with the harder potions of it.

Review: I am a beginner. The trail was fun and fast and I could complete the uphills without needing to walk my bike. The loops all intertwine with connectors in-between, so there are many ways to ride the trails and circle around your favorite parts. I don't like that a section is within earshot of a highway and overall it definittely feels like a city park instead of a state park.
