Review: I was in the area visiting my son and rode the Brumley trails yesterday. Wow, I was impressed. I almost gave them 5 stars. Strava said I rode 8.3 miles and I rode about everything I could find. The trails seem relatively new; not a lot of roots and erosion. Good flow. Most of the riding I would consider beginner. I gave it an intermediate rating for 2 reason. First, there are maybe half a dozen natural rock gardens. They were not difficult enough to cause a problem and they made the ride more enjoyable. But they were more than a beginner obstacle. There were also several gullies/ ravines that you had to cross. Several of those were difficult. One, with a bridge, was too steep for me coming out of it and I about fell back into the gulley, but I was able to stop the fall and walk up the hill. Good luck there. Overall, this was a great ride. A beginner could definitely enjoy it even if they had to walk a couple times. There is enough technical skill required to make it interesting for a more experienced rider. But these trails would definitely be in the XC category. If you're looking for an enduro or downhill experience, this isn't it. But it's a lot of fun.

Review: Loved it. I got about 8 miles when doing everything. I took all lefts but it seemed that most people went the opposite direction. Very Fun. Worth the hour drive. Closes when wet. More rocks and climbing than I would have guessed. Nothing very technical but just enough rocks in places to keep you on your toes. Definitely a new school flow trail. Some pretty big gullies. Some were more abrupt than I anticipated and could launch you if not careful.

Review: Flowtastic! awesome place to get some fast flowy hard packed miles in. A few long slow climbs, a few punchy short ones, a couple of intermediate rock gardens and some baby dirt jumps along the way. Overall very fun trail!

Review: Rode Brumley forest for the first time this weekend and I have to say it is currently one of my favorites in the Triangle! Brumley has a lot of natural flow and is a perfect trail system to start any new rider on! This will def. become a showcase trail when I have friends in town.
