Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is private--trail permit must be obtained from Bicycle Post bikeshop in Greenville prior to riding (don't worry it's worth it). Trail is 10 mile loop. Very good trail to flow through with speed. Moderately technical in places, but nothing impossible even for beginners. A few climbs/downhills, log crossings, creek crossings--a little bit of everything. There is even a little "trick" section with a teeter totter, big log piles etc... Probably best trail east of 95 in NC. Races are held here on a regular basis. Visit Bike Post website ( for race schedule and more info.

Review: Great trail, lots of dips, roots, hills to climb and turns. Could use more ramps and obstacles. Pipeline is great, downhill while having to jump the pipes to get through the ruts. Only complaint is that it's easy to get lost!! Took an extra 30 minutes to find my way out.

Review: Great trail, a little neglected but worth the hour drive to get out and ride with friends.

Review: Swamp Loop was nice and clear with some good flow. Getting farther back into the loops, flood/hurricane damage was still pretty prevalent. Lost the trail several times, and trees prevented passing several spots. It was being worked on, so I'm sure it will be clear again soon!

Review: Fun single track. I'm from West Tennessee so definitely a big change from long grueling climbs with rewarding downhills that I'm used to. Stopped in the Bicycle post and paid my usage fee and signed the waviest where dude with a beard was cool and described the trail and rooty and technical. I'd have to agree with the technical side, it's a trail with roots but as long as you don't mind powering through them it's not an issue with the right tire pressure and suspension setup. (Low). I'll add that the in the (most advanced) loop there a lot of hidden gems around the corner. Definitely a reactive trail so be ready for a narrow bridge or a small dip you have to awkwardly bunny hop around here and there, but makes it fun. Trail is narrow and almost bowled in some sections so watch pedaling with toes down as I caught my size 14 clipped in shoes on a few sections and turns. The needed wooden features are maintained and fun. There are a few wooden drops that are rotten. Teeder totter worked well as I've been on some sketchey ones. Nice trail for the most and and will go back when I'm in town. Glad I bought the year pass.

Review: I rode this trail 2 days in a row while I was in the area. The trail is well marked which I always appreciate not being familiar with the trail. The leaves had been blown off of probably 80% of the trails. I went to the Bicycle Post bike shop in downtown Greenville. Nice folks and they gave me helpful advice. I signed the waiver there, but found that there are waivers at the trailhead. There is also a trail use few of $3 per day. The first time I rode the trail I found myself hiking a lot because I couldn't see the drop offs or I lost momentum on the climbs over roots. There are tons of roots!! It's a fun trail, though. It has a few (what I call) "oh crap!" drops. All of those cool bridges that you see a photo of at the top, don't exist anymore. All are rotted out, but they don't interfere with the trail. The second time I rode it, I had a blast! I only hiked 3 spots where I couldn't negotiate the roots. It's worth a trip! Thanks for maintaining the trail so well!

Review: Tons of roots, can't really get any speed anywhere, no flow, I do ride it often because thats the only option here in eastern NC. Needs to be maintained better

Review: surprisingly good trail for Eastern North Carolina. lots of roots and some flowing areas. Can be tough to get through for beginning riders. fairly well used and maintained. Generally a lot of fun. Local so I ride it often...

Review: Closest trail near Wilson worth riding. Wish it was maintained better. Sometimes the weeds get the best of it on the back trails.

Review: Went over the bars near the beginning on a short but fairly steep incline. Shoulder still in bad shape since that crash in 2013. Knee swelled up like a melon. Had trouble breathing for a couple of days. Rode it out with my buddies, Masterclean1 and others though...dammit!

Trail is good for eastern NC, lots of roots, though. Better trails in Raleigh.

Review: For eastern NC, this is excellent. Never thought I would have found this on the flatlands of Greenville, but I'm glad I did. This trail is extremely technical with its roots and tight turns, but it's tough to have any flow it, so speed is limited. That being said, I found myself wanting to come back here time and time again. Bottom line - it's fun, and a great way to get out on your bike.
