    These trails were a pleasant surprise. Unlike previous reviewers, I wouldn't say they were particularly rooty, just a couple of short sections maybe. Well-marked and mostly well-maintained, although I did find a couple of short, less-used trails that were a bit overgrown and the Sumner Trail dumped me out on the road and disappeared.
    As someone else mentioned, you can extend the mileage by riding different combinations and reversing directions. Nothing technical, really. Moderate climbs and descents. Fairly quiet environment, which appeals to me and may vary depending on boat traffic. (I was there during the Coronavirus shut-down, so I can't speak to the usual conditions.)
    Overall, as others have remarked, probably not worth a long drive, but a nice little system to visit if you're nearby!

    This is actually a pretty decent trail if you keep in mind it is short. However, there are intersections withing the trails so you could do multiple laps taking different directions each time and it does not get repetitive. The park staff works on keeping it smoothed out where possible. There are some small hills and a couple of cool, short, but sustained downhill sections where you can open up and go for quite a few seconds. As others said, not worth driving 45 minutes to get to it, but is actually a very good after work destination if you are in Greensboro or High Point .

    My first ride here today. Rolling singletrack with LOTS of roots...even compared to Owl's Roost, Reedy Fork etc. I've heard about how rooty Bald Eagle is so I'll have to check it out for comparison. The climbs are similar to Reedy or Blue Heron so not much to them. I wouldn't drive 50 miles to ride this one but if you are within 10 - 15 minutes or so away, and don't mind roots, then it would be worth checking out. It also has NICE facilities and parking, nice playground and ball fields for the kids, boat access to Randleman Reservoir, and last but not least a dog park for the dogs to run around :)
