It's 6.5mi end to end on the paved side, so if you do an out and back you have 13mi. Good for sprints and if you ride from the Bike shop on Broad St. you can add another 5mi (approx). Good fix if your limited on time. Better for road bikes. There is an additional 3.5mi on hardpack gravel that picks up on Massey Chapel Rd. (just on the other side of Southpoint Mall).
for beginners or just a good workout, I would suggest Umstead Park. One loop is approx 4.5mi with a few long hill climbs in it.
