Review: I rode Old Creedmoor last week and thoroughly enjoyed these trails. I went solo and had little trouble navigating the trails by following the "all rights" advice. The three loops are designed to be ridden CCW. The trail head is at the parking area right off of Old Creedmoor Rd. (You can also park at Harris Teeter and ride to the trails.) Once on the trail, take your first right and you will be on the first loop. Then whenever you have a choice take a right. The second loop provides some great lake views. The third loop drops you off on the logging road. (Again I went right) You can ride the road back to the entrance or you can work your way back to the single track and ride that back.

Trail rating is highly subjective, but I consider these intermediate, maybe intermediate plus, for the Triangle. The trails were well maintained, relatively smooth and flowy, with some simple wooden jumps (no gaps), and a few good climbs. I clocked 11 miles and 1000 ft of elevation gain. Definitively a good workout in the summer heat.

Similar Trail: Beaver Dam (with more flow)

Review: checked this one out yesterday. There are a few spots to park at the head of the access road. We road up to where the land is being cleared by the loggers and headed down the power lines. We took the first entrance into the woods we found and choose the left path at the first fork we came to. We had a great run of about 2 miles. I took a path that was less worn and it popped us out by the power lines again back onto Old Creedmore. It was then about a quarter mile back to the car. Overall it was a great ride. I saw some markings so I assume there are some standard trails.

Review: Used "Directions to trailhead" map but couldn't find trailhead. The map shows trailhead in a residential area with no parking.

Review: This trail kicked my butt!! I went riding solo but was fortunate to meet up with two other experienced riders to show me around. I'm just getting into trail riding (2 months in) and this one was too difficult for me. Had the walk of shame going up some climbs. LOL. Great trail for cardio. Long slow climbs with some good flowing down hill. Obstacles are placed throughout (I avoided). I will go back once I get some more months of experience, great trail overall.

Review: Old Creedmore is one of my favorite trails in the Triangle. It features three main loops, usually ridden counter clockwise, with the first loop being the longest and most challenging. All three loops meet in the middle of the trail, allowing a rider to do any combination of the three loops. Skipping loop one requires some knowledge of how to access the middle "hub." A good rule of thumb is "stay to the right" but this will prove tricky for first timers.

The trail features a few very tough climbs (especially in loop 1) but riders are rewarded with multiple downhill or flow sections in each loop along with 2 sections called "lumps" which are an absolute blast. A handful or ramp jumps and other obstacles also dot the trail.

Overall, the trail is not quite as technical as New Light but harder than Beaverdam.

Review: Being 31 years old and with only 7 months experience I consider myself an advanced beginner or pathetic intermediate rider....there are 3 loops. 2 are very fun with flow and one is a touch advanced. Like the only other guy who reviewed this trail, I agree that its similar to Beaver Dam's South Loop. If Crabtree isn't doing it for you any more I'd suggest checking this gem out. The seesaw drop section is fun as hell.

Review: Found this gem recently. It has plenty of technicality, some long tough climbs, with some rewarding flowy downhills. The trail is smooth enough in sections to let a novice/intermediate rider to charge into the dips. I feel like it rides a little smoother than Beaver Dam's South Loop, but it is very similar. Easier than New Light. Make sure you have a GPS and have some idea of the unpublished trails.

Similar Trail: Beaver Dam, Rocky Road, New Light
