    Simple stuff but it's enough fun to justify a quick trip.
    Not too many technical obstacles, but if you pump it right you can get good speed in some areas.
    Going the day after a ton of rain it seemed pretty dry.
    Must clear up well.
    The trail is in good shape too.

    I guess I must have missed a big section of this trail? I followed it all the way down to a creek, and I even crossed the creek hoping to be able to find the other end of the trail? And to no avail! I ended up riding the section I could find twice and made a loop around the greenway and half a loop around the paved section beside the landfill and was able to get 6 miles in.... What section I could find was pretty cool!

    This is a great park to ride if you live relatively close. I think it has a lot of intermediate obstacles which makes it fun to ride. I love come her when im close by but i would not just come here. Its a great park to ride, if you have never been here come at least once you will have fun.

    The only reason i didn't give this trail a 5-star is the size, it's too small. It's perfect if you live close, but if you live upward of 30 minutes away, you might need to have a second trail in mind to enjoy and b satisfied.

    Overall, a fun ride. Not challenging by any means but still enjoyable. More trials than I expected. Some parts are narrow. Lots of pine straw on the ground which made fast turns difficult - I had skid out multiple times but it's not the type of trail you can really get fast on. Not really any jumps on the trails but nice transition in small elevation. Some spots on the trails you can catch slight air if you have the speed.

    Tech area was very small but cool - I enjoyed it. Wasn't busy when I went Sunday afternoon. Well kept trail.

    Awesome! Challenging enough for a beginner but not too much to handle. Also it was very well maintained.

    Built by Triangle Off Road Cyclists of North Carolina (TORC-NC) these 2 miles of rolling singletrack offer beginner and intermediate riders with a quick and fun ride to help them improve on their skills as riders. I ride this trail at least once a week and have learned to master it's turns, drops, and climbs. Every ride I experience a new challenge, and enjoy the feeling I get from having a great ride.
