Mountain Biking Broad River Greenway

  Add a review
#145 of 534 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#3821 in the world

If you park in the University area it makes a nice trip to the Greenway. Constuction is still going on in the Down town area but weekend traffic is fairly light. The bike lane is clearly marked and for once you can ride without fear of being runover in NC! Once you enter the Park you can go either right or to the newly constucted left section. The first part has a number of pedestrians but soon you will see a break to the left for bike and equestrians. You will definetly need fat tires on the paths because of the loose soil. You will get to cross a rocky stream or two and try not to spook the horses. Facilities are just now being built but the the plus is very few people are on the trails.

    Singletrack if you ride upriver and double track if you head down. Upriver trail is kinda short but has some decent twisty sections. The downriver trail stays very wet after rain. There cutting some new sections to try to stay clear of the low areas. There are some trails that split off and have some pretty good climbs. Haven't ridden them so don't know what they are like. Also, downriver shares trail with horses so you have to dodge piles occasionally. Very close to home so not bad for my mid week rides.
