Trail Description
About this trail
OPEN TO MOUNTAIN BIKERS ON SUNDAY ONLY. Since these trails are fairly new they are bumpy as can be. There are some of the best climbs in the Triangle area here at the New Light Trails. I'm sure it's a lot faster ride when the leaves aren't covering the trails. These trails have a good balance of length, technicality, and speed. And it's a great workout!

Review: Technical, rocky, with constant up/down and over action. Lots of fun, I just wish it were longer!

Review: This place gave me what I was looking for! Rocks, climbs, down hills, some jumps, flow, tight single track, and multiple views of the lake. This place will test your skills with out feeling out of control. Check it out.

Review: Great workout with lots of long climbs. Access to different loops from the fire road is good. But last weekend they were logging out there and some doofus shot up the trail map. Technically challenging, but not many man made obstacles. Could use more since it's an MTB trail afterall, not really a hiking thing. Good lake views. Take plenty of water if you plan to do the whole thing.

Review: Great challenge. Plenty of stuff to keep you focused and working hard. It is a little choppy, but I like the feeling of overcoming the landscape rather than the trail doing it for me all the time.

Review: One of my favorite trails in the area; great technical sections that take great advantage of the terrain around Fall Lake. If you like rocks, you'll like New Light. Some of the better climbs in the area, especially if you target the difficult lines up them.

Review: I took my first ride there earlier today, and I must admit that it was an extraordinarily humbling experience. As an unabashed beginner, I expected to encounter a number of "hike-a-bike" sections, and I was not mistaken in the least. However, despite the difficulty, it is the best trail I have found in the Triangle area thus far. Advanced riders should enjoy the park even more. Have fun, obey the rules (it is, after all, used for hunting grounds from September to May), and bring plenty of water...

Similar Trail: Almost as enjoyable as Montgomery Bell Park in Tennessee

Review: Great riding in the triangle area. Several loops, with good marking at the trail intersections. Lots of possibilities within the system for variety and all day fun. The trails have been ridden in really well, so they are smooth and fast. Good climbs without being annoying, and always rewarded with a small, but fun, downhill stretch soon after.
