Just rode 81 miles on the Wild Azalea trail. I rode from Valentine lake to Woodworth. Besides the few down trees on the back half of the trail, the trail was well tamed. All the underbrush was recently burnt. The hills roll with roots, but that's the challenge. Who would want an easy trail?
Expect to get off your bike at some point, be it mud, down trees, sliding out on pine straw, or the unknown.
Perfect trail to benchmark your ride and gear. You will be able to pick out your weaknesses if your ride the 24 and back.
