Mountain Biking American Tobacco Trail

This newly opened rails to trails project starts in downtown Durham and leads south to Jordan
Lake. Well signed and minimal grades make this a leisurely ride for riders of all levels. Several miles from the start in Durham, there is pump track in a park right on the trail.
