Trail Description
About this trail
I practically learned how to mountain bike on these trails. Sean, a pal from work, likes to torture co-ops by taking them riding here. We have all shed a little blood and went home with some bumps and bruises, but I'm the only one that has stuck with the life-threatening sport. At first I would bust on logs about six inches in diameter. Then it was on to harder things-literally. Once I was coming down this hill and caught a wet bridge at the wrong angle. My back tire slid out from under me, I slammed down on the bridge splitting a couple of planks and all that momentum knocked the wind out of me. There is a lot of fun single track on this trail, but you can also ride around the park on the paved roads. We usually start with a quick two to three miles of twisty and curvy single track and spit out onto the paved roads that circle the park. Then we ride more technical single track and exit the park to ride through a neighborhood towards Lake Brandt. That was the Wednesday ritual...and the Thursday ritual was always Sean exaggerating my near death experiences.

Review: Awesome place! Great trail loop with a few roots, nice bank turns and some loss stone. Well maintained and I'd go back for sure. Highlight: BMX like track with a wonderful downhill and 4-5 foot banks and tabletops! Highly recommend for all!

Review: Great flowing trail with some good ups and downs. Lots of options to drop out and catch your breath on pavement. Deceptive on how much your climb. Be careful in the turns, a lot of loose rocks and acorns. Can easily link to Wild Turkey or Owls Roost.

Review: This trail is a lot of fun--lots of flowy sections to get some speed and thrills. There aren't a lot of technical parts like logs and jumps, but there are a few bumpy sections to get some air and plenty of fun berms. The only problem is that the trails aren't marked. Even with a paper map and the Singletracks topo map, I got turned around a few times and was unsure which direction was preferred in the loops. At some of the crossings with the gravel and paved roads, the trail leads out to the road and it's unclear where the trail continues. Better signage with directions would have improved my ride greatly.

Review: This trail is a lot of fun, you are given the choice of an easy loop (through some woods and around the dog park area) or a little more advanced area by crossing the paved road that leads to either the cemetary or back into the park (depending on the direction you turn) and climb the hill. It's a big area and fun to ride, as well as being easy to get to from anywhere in GSO.

Review: Good trail. Usually a warmup cor owls roost or wild turkey. Good birms and there can be a bit of loose dirt/pebbles in some turns.

Review: Decent variety of trails but a little hard to find everything since many trails intersect the pavement. Good one to connect with other trails like Bur-Mil.

Review: The trail work and new sections at Country Park have dramatically improved the overall experience. It's a fun ride with some fun burms, "skills area," varied terrain and decent uphills that will challenge beginners and some intermediates. The only beef I have with it is it's not marked well once you hit the paved road at Battleground Park. I had to ride up and down a few times to find the trail, which led me to a loop up and around the dog park. I always encounter wildlife and see deer on the trail, which is cool.

Review: Good trail for new bikers to get a little taste of dirt. Literally haha. Loop trail is nice and only one is Greensboro I think. The greenway connects this to Wild turkey, Owls Roost and even Bur-Mil, so you theoretically ride all day long on large trail.

Similar Trail: Close to other great trails Wild Turkey, Owls Roost, Greenway is nice change of pace, and Bur-Mil little and big loop trails.
