Trail Description
About this trail
When I went to this trail there was a sign on the gate saying "No Riding Today". So, I parked on the side of the road and jumped onto the trail in the woods just to check it out. I wasn't able to ride the whole thing but I got a pretty good feel for the trail. The day I was there the trail was very wet and seemed to be quite washed out. Apparently this is a big race course because there were arrow signs on like every tree on the course. This seems to be a fairly fast, smooth course but it seems to be quite washed out and eroded. A good trail to warm up for the other Sanford trails. Reminds me of the GMA trails in Cumming, GA.

Review: It has lots of roots and ruts from motocross riders. Fairly hard packed surfaces with some mudd. Would not ride after a rainy day. Bring lots of mosquitoe repellent. Not a bad ride.

Review: Great trail! I made three laps and enjoyed every one of them. This is just great singletrack. The climbs are short as are the downhills. This is one of the rootiest trails I've ever been on - more so than Owl's Roost! The sand is still pretty hard-packed so it can be extremely fast. The last section closer to the road weaves next to a creek - beautiful scenery. It's a fun trail to ride if you are in the area, along with Governor's Creek and San-Lee.

Review: I went just after a rain, and the trail was really muddy, it was an all around fun ride, a few killer uphills, the trails are really well marked.

Review: Also a Motocross track on the land. Trailhead is easy to find once you pull into the gate. Trail is closed during motocross races and hunting season though.

Review: I rode this trail recently and really enjoyed it. It was not too technical, so it is good for intermediate riders. The owners are very bike friendly and the trails are always open unless there is a race going on. Call first to see if there is a race or you may waste a trip. If the the gate is closed, I was told by the owner to just park on the outside and push my bike in. It was worth the 45 minute drive from Raleigh.
