Review: Wow this is a great trail and that could have a lot of potential. You are trespassing if you are hiking running walking the dog or riding a bike on the property. Please refrain from doing any of these activities until the property is opened up to the public. You can more than likely will get a citation if you are caught on the Property. Signs should be posted soon. Until then you can contact a Guilford county commissioner and tell them you would like to see the trails opened up.

Review: This trail is fun! Several climbs to make you sweat, but there is reward for the work. The path alongside the creek is beautiful and serene. We met one of the guys who is responsible for the upkeep and you could tell how much he loved the trail and wants everyone to enjoy it.

Review: Trail is alot of fun. Some tech areas and some speed areas. The part of the trail that is in the woods is very nice and the part that runs thru the clear cut is overgrown. You can still make your way thru but many thorns will grab you all over. Several spots where dismount is only option. It is for me very close so I will continue to ride here for the workout. Hope to see more folks here!!

Review: Decided to make the drive out this afternoon. I would say it's deffinatly worth the drive for me (salisbury). Best i could tell the trailhead is behind the school before you get to the playground drops in fast. flow is marginal mostly, though there are some really good faster sections to peice together. Some trails are excruciatingly difficult to follow and look out for the trails in the now grown clear cut full of grab your arms briars. Other than that there are some super fun sections and can be lots of good small climbs except for the downhill section way in the back its great to go up steep and relentless. Will return with friends so they can enjoy it and we can find everything out here. If these trails were a bit more complete I'd rate a 5 no doubt wish I was closer I'd work on them as much as I could.

Review: I ride this trail about once a week and it has really grown on me. It definitely takes some getting used to. There are countless trails that intersect all over the place, which makes it easy to get lost. I find it's best to go downhill and find the creek to reorient yourself if you are lost; or just look at the maps on on your smartphone. After you have been here a few times, you won't get lost.

This is not like other trails, where the trail is one big loop; or the trails consists of a start and end point. The trails here remind me of braided channels in a river. It can mess up your flow when the trail constantly forks and you are not sure which path to take.

Like others have said, there are banks and jumps that are pretty fun. The wooden bridges are in pretty bad shape. A lot of the trails have been cleaned up this year and even a few new ones have been added. The land that was clearcut a few years ago has some vegetation now and a few trails that run through it, plus there is still plenty of wooded area.

If you like to explore, this is a fun place because you will always find an trail that you haven't been down yet.

Review: As of 7/10/2015 It is safe to say that NORTHWOODS has had a bunch of work done... Looks to me like the TRAIL Pixies have started blessing the place...I would love to see some MORE people like me that want to see this place in all its glory.... MOST of the big trees are cut and the trails have been raked. But yes the TECH area is in bad shape .There is a ok FLOW once you get into the back area, Some great bank-turns as well as some great drops. There is also a drop-in that runs down a dry creekbed. Its a great place that needs some help, SO come check it out....

Review: From Doctor Randy Northwood needs alot of trees removed to be rideable for any length of time.The bridges are questionable, some able to hold weight, others ride at your own risk. There is some singletrack open but be prepared to hike-a-bike around/over/thru fallen trees. The creek trail is just Beautiful!!! Good day to ride, better than a stick in the eye! Oh dang that happened to me today, might want to wear glasses in there Gentlemen. Dang branch got me.

Review: I have been riding this trail since I was about seven and unfortunately it was clear cut about two years ago. Now it is a walking trail which loops back around onto the same main pathway.
I am going to rebuild this trail with a few of my buds and we are going to make this trail the same if not better than it previously was.
If anyone would like to help send a letter to the school it belongs to and or the city of High Point stating that the trail be restored to its former beauty.
It sickens me to see another landmark of North Carolina destroyed by some "professional" contractor trying to make a buck.

Review: We went this morning to check and see if this trail which was described as an awesome and beautiful trail and true to the description it was an awesome and gorgeous trail. Unfortunately, everything that was written was true. This was a forgotten trail. Lots of fallen trees all over the trail. This is just sad to see that nobody cares enough to develop and regain the beauty of this trail.
