    I rode the back section yesterday and the condition of the trail was near perfect, partly because there was a race here last weekend and packed the ground and traction was near perfect also. Although it was a little warm (86 degrees), I seem to enjoy and perform best in hot weather. Since the trails have finally dried out from the damp cold winter, the riding has been great. The back section is laid out very similar to Wild Turkey and Blue Heron with the turning, twisting, short up and down, technical dips, and tough climbs. That's the reason I like this trail so much.

    I rode the yellow section today, ccw. This section has a little more flow and I was able to carry a little more speed. There are still many hand side rocks and big roots to keep your speed in check. Entering the yellow section ccw there an easy climb until you get all the way over to the right side and start up the longest continuous climb on the entire course, I'm assuming that's the edge of the property line where a big section of trees were logged. It rained about all day yesterday, but there was no slick places anywhere. All in all this was a good ride, with perfect 68 degrees weather.

    One of the best set ups around. Rode there this weekend with 4 friends and the trails were open clear and dry even with all the rain. Does not disappoint

    These have to be the best maintained trails around. Every time I go there they are working on something and the leaves are blown. I drive up from Greensboro several times a week to ride there.

    Some of the best maintained trails around with everything anyone might like. I drive up from NC 2-3 times a week to get some hot laps in. Very well marked, good flow and some black diamond sections that wont let you down
