Review: Great trail, but I am pretty sure NCSU had it closed Dec 31, 2013 If I am wrong please say so. I would love to go back.

Review: Great trail. Someone earlier described it as a combo of Dark Mountain and Warrior Creek, which feels pretty accurate. Good climbs, nice bermed turns in some places and a few rideable rock gardens thrown in. Can't wait to see this system grow and expand.

Review: Definaty not a first timers ride. Although I did it as a first timer. Got caught in the rain. It was tough heart pounding climb. Killed my K~2. No brakes or shocks on the way down. I enjoyed it but it was not without pain. Great climbs fast switched backs. Rock bridges. The trails are narrow. And had some failing wood shingle covered bridges. All of that said after I recovered I had fun. Try it.

Review: Got to ride here for the first time yesterday. Santacruz demo team was there with all their newest bikes. Awesome group of people and the people from Mock Orange Bikes also. Trails are just about perfect, to me anyway. Hand built rock gardens and bridges. Lots of back breaking work has been done out here to make these trails as natural as can be. Lots of climbs but with some flat areas mixed in for a break up. Some very technical rocky areas on the downs for a white knuckle feeling on some areas then just nice flowing downs with some jumps on the way for a bonus. didnt get the chance to ride the new stuff by the campground but I will for sure be back again to ride the whole system over again. six stars out of five from me

Review: Two times riding these trails,they deserve a good review,Very well built berms and good flow with just enough rock gardens not to frighten the average rider.Also some good stuff cross the creek on the north side,about 8 miles now.Well worth the trip from Danville.

Review: New trails are open and have had a six hour race run on them. They should be packed in well and ready for fun times.

Review: MST is built by both local non cyclist and avid MTB-ing volunteers. Without their hard work and dedication this place would not exist. Thanks to you all. We have 3 interconnected 2 mile loops on the South side of MS Rd and are actively building on the North (campground) side of the road now, including the recently build 'IMBA Switchback'.

Review: Fantastic trail system that is growing with each passing month. Built with a clear vision and an eye for detail, this trail is a model in sustainable design and erosion control. Quality!

Review: MST is an awesome trail that keeps getting better. The main loop can be ridden either direction and a sort of figure eight. It has a good mix of technical, flowy sections, berms, and rock features. Several good climbs that reward you with fast downhills. What can I say, it has it all. Ride it for yourself and see.
