Mountain Biking Piranha Pit

***   Add a review
#154 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina

Lots of tight singletrack with plenty of short drops and climbs on hard packed rooty terrain , not too bad for Down East. The technical rooty outer loop will test the skill of any rider while the short 1.5 mile inner loop is great for beginners and families to warm up on. See our web site for more details.
