Trail Description
About this trail
This is "Wilkesbermo." Since 2002 there has been nearly 50 miles of bike-optimized MTB trail built at Kerr Scott. The ribbons of singletrack that carve around the reservoir provide a thrilling experience to say the least, largely due to the hundreds (yes, hundreds) of bermed and banked turns. The system was named an IMBA Epic in 2011. Need to know...The US Army Corps of Engineers enforces a trail closure policy during wet weather or freeze-thaw conditions. Good to check the Kerr Scott twitter page before you go...

Review: Great flow but not a fan of two way traffic! Couple of trees down but otherwise great shape!

Review: As of July 1st 2019, the trail is closed. They had flooding nearby that caused a bunch of trees to fall across the trail. Make sure to check that the trail is open before driving out of your way to go.

Review: Fun trails, I will be back for sure. Mostly buff single track (Warrior Creek) with an odd rock garden or two and lots of berms (although not as many as I was expecting)

Review: Rode OVT during the week. Parked at visitor center. Very friendly, restrooms, water and a bike repair/ cleaning station. Fun 16 mile out and back with good flow, lake views and berms.

Review: lots of leaves in November, well marked trails, lots of fun and burns and flow. Nothing too technical, felt like I wanted to ride it all day.

Review: This is one of my favorite trails systems in the whole state...Warrior Creek brings me back by itself, even without factoring in the other two. Awesome.
