Review: Love the natural setting and how natural the trails are. A special perk is you can fill your pack/bottles with cold mountain spring water from a pipe next to the trail early on in the ride. The view of Hanging Rock and Wolf Rock (I think) from "Major Tom" is always lovely. Here's a link to the updated trail map: http://ncparks.gov/sites/default/files/ncparks/maps-and-brochures/hanging-rock-bike-trails.pdf

Review: This was my first time riding this trail. Beautiful car drive to get there, which gets you in the mood for riding in the hills. When I got there, I met a local rider named Scott. This was his home trail and he was very helpful in giving guidance on riding the trail, he recommended I ride it counterclockwise, which spreads out the climbing throughout the ride versus all at the start.
Trail was very well made. Rock gardens, great berms, some tight switchbacks, and some great downhills. My favorite part was cresting the mountain and having the beautiful view of Hanging Rock. This made the climbing worth it. I would definitely recommend this trail for intermediate to advanced riders. Fun time!! I rode two laps, and the second lap was of course faster than the first.

Review: MooreSprings is an amazing Singletrack Trail, and it has a nice flow to it. As well as a gnarly downhill section and is good for beginner and intermediate rider sessions.

Review: Updated information sent in on a user about this system: " these trails in Stokes County NC have been closed by NC State University, the current owner of the property. In a bill before the NC Legislature this property will be transferred to Hanging Rock State Park. This is likely to pass. These trails will re open under the Park System "

Review: Moore's Springs was the best trail system I've ridden. It was well maintained and had insane flow. The creek crossing and bridges kept the trail interesting. Since it's location is in the foothills of the Sauratown mountains, the climbs were solid. The trail system has since been closed and I haven't heard any recent news. The Facebook page for the trail system is all I have for news on this awesome trail system.

Review: The trail had a small informal sign at the entrance which said "Trails Closed", but other than that the place looked open. There were tire tracks from since the last rain (two days before) everywhere? Exciting and beautiful area.

Review: Thanks so much for that detail - I am trying to figure out if the trails are "closed", but how can you really close the woods. Can it still be ridden without ranger consequences? Would be great to know.

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.
