Mountain Biking Chicken Road

**   Add a review
#248 of 538 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#6,049 in the world

According to Installation Commander Col Sanborn; the only legal trails on FB is "Smith Lake Trails & All American Trail". The Chicken Rd site that ppl are using has Federal Endanger Plants in them and yellow signs marking the area. When caught, it is a felony trespassing. Loggers have been in the area lately. The powers came to me today about this and I want to warn ppl who want to do the right thing! The person building bridges is stealing fence slats from local housing areas. Don't give MTB a BAD NAME! PPL can call 910-396-7531 or 396-7060 to verify this or get more outdoor information, the right information

    About half of this trail is gone (as of 01 June 2012). I found that out the hard way when I rode over to it the other day and saw it was being clear cut by loggers. I live in the new Barracks less than half a mile from the trail head, so naturally they are my stomping grounds. I'm not sure why they are cutting down all of the trees, but the machines they are using to do it seem to be following the singletrack's every turn. After my failed attempt to ride the area I returned to gather my trail maintenance tools I leave out there. The trails in many of my favorite areas have been compacted beneath the 5 ft tall tires (not even you 29er riders can match them) of the hellish machines they are using to strip this once tranquil area. It is a shame... There are still some areas of the trails you can ride, so feel free to go there and explore. I just wanted to make sure everybody was informed that these trails aren't what they once were.

    It's open as long as you don't get caught. Needs some work but not to bad of a singletrack.

    Drvien around out by there, and yes, several of my riding buddies also say it's jakked up that Mountain Bikes aren't allowed out there, yet YOU CAN SEE WHERE THEY (the "Range Nazis") SET THEIR DEER BAIT AND STANDS OUT. Seems they have this area as their own private hunting grounds. Many people confirm that.
