Mountain Biking Durant Nature Park

****   Add a review
#147 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#2,989 in the world

An abandoned Boy Scout camp provides a nice escape to the woods nestled in between neighborhoods and warehouses in north Raleigh. Lots of trails for hiking, but only 1.5 miles allow bikes. Most of the MTB trail is fast, wide doubletrack, with a few sections of slightly steeper and rooty singletrack mixed in. There are a couple of nice lakes in the middle of the park and sections of the trail border both of them. Nothin fancy or technical here, but if you live nearby, its a great place to ride to on the greenway w/out having to mess with the bike rack on the car. BONUS: numerous wildlife encounters here while riding.
