Mountain Biking Lake Mackintosh

***   Add a review
#241 of 532 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#8984 in the world

Short \"loop\"- Mostly singletrack, but maintained by a ATV so its wider than most. First half hugs the boundary of the lake then goes up a moderate (100 foot) hill to an old farm road to loop around and finish. Watch out for walkers!. The trail is only noteworthy since I do loops on it at lunch (From the (soon to be shutdown)Konica Plant!) - Trail is closed on Tuesdays (and all of Dec & Jan)

    Good little loop with moderate up and down single track. Lots of roots and stays pretty wet/sketchy for the most part. There is an option to add about a mile and a half and this will take you on a nice little lake side track ending in a pine canopy.

    Roots...roots...roots. Not a bad short trail but its all rooted, rocky, bouncy trail. Can't imagine riding on a hard tail. Some moderately quick spots but mostly just tree roots that jar your insides out.

    This park (and therefore the trails) is closed during the months of December and January each year. I talked to the caretaker and he said there is talk of extending the trails and of opening the park year round. I rode on the road instead. Lots of hills on NC 61 - a great workout (but a bit boring for MTB'ers)
