Trail Description
About this trail
Enter trail 2 at kiosk marked with IMBA signs. Follow signs to blue trail across the bridge at bottom of hill. The blue trail is intermediate and 1 mile long. Next is the beginner section that is 1.75 miles long, flows well. After you come out of the begginer trail , go left into the gravel parking lot and where the driveway comes into the gravel, directly behind that is the trail head...some logs help guide you in. It's not marked..but be ready!! Next is the black diamond, and it is a lung buster. This is not for any beginners, this is serious up and downs, and is tough, trail is 3.2 miles.Take your pick of the 3 trails, but I start with blue, green and then black.

Review: Unmaintained. Don't waste your time or gas. Couldn't find any trails.

Review: Once upon a time, these were probably pretty fun trails, but they are not being maintained and have become almost untraceable. What little signage there is is confusing. Such a shame.....

Review: I would call myself a weekend warrior and have a decent experience with mountain biking and hiking/backpacking. I include hiking because of how hard the trails are to find. I followed directions from this page and other reviewers and spend twenty minuets trying to find the trail. I never once found any signs or blazes for any MTB trail. I even asked locals near the playgrounds and got a funny are you crazy look from them. I honestly believe this was the worst trail experience I have ever had and strongly recommend avoiding the park.

Review: I have tried to ride this trail several times, and I never could find the whole trail. It just kinda disppears into a field at one point. I rode this trail fully with my Dad when I was like, twelve, but I'm 18 now and still can't find the whole trail. On kind-of a side note, I rode down that climb classed as "black-Diamond". Would the class change going down, or remain the same as going up?

Review: Went over the weekend because it's local. My wife wants to try mountain biking, so I figured this would be a good place because of the beginner trail. Never found that one though, only the intermediate trail which was a bit too much for her.

Review: These trails are horrible! The trail heads are marked but thats about it. Trails need to be remarked.

Review: This is a poorly(if at all) maintained trail. It is a complete waste of time. Seemed like the park wanted a quick fix to get in on the MTB cyclists.

Review: I started with the blue (intermediate) course and was a bit confused as to where the trail was going. No directions for a trail head and after some riding I seemed to get on track. I just rode the blue trail until I found the freeride section! Wow! Tight and technical, it needs some clearing but some fun drops and berms with cool bridge crossings over creeks! Very nice, just needs some clearing. Beginners beware as I am one....this trail will kick your ass but you'll keep coming back for more!

If anyone involved with Rich Park Trail maintenance reads this-- I would love to volunteer to help clear and fix some broken drops on the freeride trail.

Review: KUDOS!!! I returned after reading that there had been work done....and it is great!! Many, many thanks to those folks who did that, it is a total "180" turn-around. Great markings, good flow, clean, the "difficult" trail is GREAT (what I saw of it, had to walk out after about 1.3 miles due to broken spokes) but did do both other trails, very very good now. Thanks again to all that worked on it.

Review: We, the Davie County Cycling Assoc. are in the process of revamping the Rich Park trials. Our goal is to make it as fun and user friendly as possible.

The Beginner and intermediate trails are all but completed (Pending some minor tweaks)and very ridable, flowing nicely.

The Advanced trail is getting some much needed attention. We are in process of "Bench Cutting" a lot of the side hills and adding some more user friendly lines. It will still be an Advanced trial with a lot of climbing and technical aspects. 95% of the Free-ride section is still intact and functional (w/ Go rounds on everything). We hope to have the trail fully ridable very soon, w/ constant improvements through out the year, including new bridges, additional loops, and better sign-age.

Please come out and give the "New" Rich Park trails a shot.

If your interested in volunteering for trail building, please contact the Davie County Cycling Assoc.
