Trail Description
About this trail
From the pdf: The Woodring Branch Trail is a 3.5 mile loop that is of easy to moderate difficulty. Walking time to complete the trail is approximately 1 hour. Trailhead parking is located on a short dead end spur road approximately 3.2 miles after turning into the Woodring Branch Recreation Area off Hwy 282/76. Good lake views and two small streams are found along the trail The trail is open to hiking and mountian bikes. http://carters.sam.usace.army.mil/maps/05wbtrweb.pdf

Trail is short and sweet. The front half is fast singletrack with a few short quick hills to climb. The back half is a series of slow climbs that closes with a nice leg burner at the end. Great trail to loop a few times while camping at Carter's Lake with Ridgeway close by for variety.

Review: I really enjoyed this. Headed to this one after riding another trail nearby. I think this needs to be renamed - it is Amahady, not Woodring, was wondering why I hadn't seen it on this site. Non directional, so I chose CCW, was worried about a big climb back out because I started off with a nice rolling descent. No worries, not too bad. A tree is down at the half way point, no way around it, but easy to climb over. The lake is right there... one false move and you would be in it. It has rained quite a bit lately, but this trail was in excellent shape. Roots were slippery of course, but no puddles or mud.

Review: Trail is fast and flowy. Views of the lake are beautiful. Good beginner or intermediate trail. I rode clockwise and the flow was good.

Review: Beautiful views of Carter Lake can be distracting! Descent at the start is really fun, fairly flat around the middle, and a very gradual (but eventually noticable!) climb back to the trailhead. Great beginner/intermediate trail for me (about as difficult as I can handle personally), but my much more advanced boyfriend rode it too but did two much faster laps and enjoyed it.

Review: I would call it a beginner/intermediate trail. Had a lot of fun and they are expanding the trail. No obstacles in the trail. Clockwise for some fast downhill and counterclockwise for a good leg burner.

Review: Enjoyed the ride very much. Two small downed trees from a storm a week ago but you can get around them easily.
