Trail Description
About this trail
Follow the gravel path down to the woods, The trail is VERY well marked, turns, drops, shortcuts, etc. Nothing real technical except one maybe 6 foot gully, some short really steep climbs and a few logs. good cardio workout. One long climb, some fast places and the usual roots. Very well marked and clean.

Review: A twisting singletrack trail with challenging elevation changes. Needs more people to ride it plus some TLC ????.

Review: Rode here for the first time. Trail needs some maintenance but lots of potential. Challenging terrain with some good climbs and elevation changes. All singletrack.

Review: My son and I ride 20-30 miles a week on all kinds of trails. We've ridden great ones, and not so great ones. There is just one word to describe this trail: horrible. It is overgrown, not maintained at all, and many parts of the trail are about 3 inches wide. The signage is good, but the trail is terrible. Don't waste your time on it. If you're in the area, ride Moore Spring trails or Kernersville MTBP.

Review: Singletrack not maintained well lots of fallen branches that don't touch the ground. Lots of spiders and ticks. It would be ok if it was maintained at least some

Review: Not a bad little trail. There is tons of roots so be careful. Gets a little bit boggy in the low parts even a few days after rain. I would ride this again if I was in the area. Just remember the bike trails are over near the dog park. Not the side with the disk golf, if you look over there you will never find them.

Review: Great trail, and if you find trees down, all you have to do is stop by the maintenance sheet, and tell the guys out there. They do a terrific job of keeping it clean, but they can't fix it if they don't know about it. Keep up the great work.

Review: I can't believe I waited this long to check out Horizons. Past reviews mentioned fallen trees and blocked routes, but there was only 1 minor block caused by a recently fallen tree when I went. The trail system contains 2 loops, an outer perimeter loop (P) and technical offshoots from it (T). If you take a right toward P at the fork at the end of the gravel entrance, you'll do a quick climb with T options throughout the rest of the way. In total, this makes for a ride of about 3.5 miles, including the gravel climb back to the parking lot. Get the map from the park's website for a more detailed map, but really, it's such a small area that sooner or later you'll figure it out. Signage is ok, but some forks are unmarked. The trails are soft, natural, and not at all packed down from riders. The trails get minimal use from bikes, though a few old built wooden parts remain. Definitely a woodsy vibe here with many spiders and webs across the path. Few climbs and descents, good flow, good gulleys. A weathered paper sign near the entrance says Ken's Bike Shop maintains the trails. If so, thanks, and I hope to see the trails stay clear!

Review: I'm partial to Horizons 'cause it's where I started riding, but I don't recommend it for beginners. (I was tricked...fortunately!) Include the five sub-loops inside the perimeter "P" trail to form the "T" trail. Nice natural setting, out in the country. Lots of short but steep climbs and descents with good alternation of more flowing sections.



Shares parking with dog park, which has the only water fountains for that side of the park. Watch out for treacherous black walnuts on the trail. ; )

Review: I went to this trail today for the first time with high hopes thinking it was gonna be an awesome trail. Don't get me wrong it has the potential to be a great trail, but the things that make this trail terrible right now are the signs, and the fallen trees and everything in the trail. The whole time I rode this trail I had no clue where I was going Bc there are hardly any markings to tell you where to go. and even if you are following the trail there's several sections where it breaks off into 2 or 3 other trails that have no signs so you just got to guess where to go. Honestly if the trail had better markings on where to go I would love it.

Review: Let me start by saying that the only reason I ranked at intermediate is due to the fallen trees and overgrowth. The terrain has mad potential! With a little more maintenance and some attention to flow this trail system could be sick! Anyhow I had a fun ride this afternoon and was the only one on the trail. Super close to winston and a good experience.
