The Pinehurst Ramble at 16.8 miles is a fairly easy ride from downtown Southern Pines to Pinehurst, through the village, then back again. Much of the route is tree-lined, and traffic speeds are low, except along Midland Road where the speed limit is 45 mph. However, the four lanes on Midland Road offer additional space for cyclists in the right lane. Maneuvering around the traffic circle between the two towns requires that cyclists behave like vehicle operators, yielding to traffic already in the circle but staying on the right side of the lane for easy exit on Midland Road. The effort is worth it as you tour the quaint village of Pinehurst before returning along the same route to Southern Pines.

The trail was not marked at all. It was about 50% four lane highway and 40% 2 lane roads and 10% city shopping roads. We were looking for a rural, bike path experience, but got quite a bit of road traffic experience. The traffic circle was very scary!!!
