Mountain Biking Capital Area Greenway Bent Creek Dr
#276 of 544 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
Start off @ the intersection of Bent Creek Dr & Longstreet Dr. Continue on paved path about 0.25-0.50 miles (before 2nd bridge) you will see a very steep unpaved hill on your right with roots and rocks. There will be many obstacles such as rocks and roots. This is very well used and easy to see where you are going. It seemed to be a lot of fun. There are a few forks in the trip that go in different directions. One I saw a tree down with a man made railing. The other way seems to follow the manholes and stream. Not sure how long this trail is I just discovered it today. I will try and let yell know soon and to upload more pictures.

Off of six forks road, turn down Longstreet Dr and you will find Bent Creek Dr on your left. You will see a sign called Capital Area Greenway @ the intersection.
This is only a mile long section of the greenway that is technically for hiking only. It is part of Mine Creek Trail. The first section is steep and lots of roots and then quickly flattens out and dead ends at sawmill road. Not worth driving to ride this by itself but if you are riding the greenway near by it is a nice dirt section right off the greenway.Thank |
Seemed to be a lot of fun nice roots and rocks. Still riding it to learn more it's close by definitely has potential. I'll keep ya lol updated. Definitely recommend for intermediate riders.Thank |
