Review: Given the location and available terrain, this trail is almost shockingly good. Whoever laid this out designed in some very nice flow and it is a wonderful pedal fest with nice integration of the very few available rocks in the area. Mileage is limited and this would be a 4 star trail if there was just more of it.

Review: These trails flow nicely. I ride springs loop most of the time. There aren't really any jumps which is a bummer but overall the trails are well maintained and flow great. There are a few rock gardens that are somewhat challenging.

Review: This place has massive amounts of flow and fun. It doesn't ever really seem like you are climbing. The singletrack is well packed and hard, and rides good. Several good descent, whoop-de-doos, switchbacks and small rock gardens. Overall, on the easier end of intermediate, but makes up for it by being a lot of fun.

Review: Brumley is a blast! Great flow but also lots of climbs that will get your heart pumping. Some fun little jumps and trails are well marked. I wouldn't call this beginner trails. It's intermediate. Certainly not expert. Pretty scenery, watch out for hikers.

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.
