Smith Lake is an excellent introductory trail—a good place to take friends you want to show a good time and where they won’t biff. The track is most often smooth and flawless, and if you’re expecting lots of loose sand here in the Sandhills, think again. The pine needles and sand pack down like pavement between the trees, leaving smooth berms and dozens of perfect bunny hop opportunities. The trail is broken into three loops (Green, Blue, and Black), but just about all riders will be able to negotiate the entire thing. Tread: 7.5 miles of well-packed, sandy singletrack; 0.4 mile of mushy sandy road.

I usually ride this trail a couple of times a week. It's not very technical but it's a good time anyhow. If you're looking for a challenge make the drive to San Lee park, if you want to have a good time and you're local, Smith Lake is a great way to spend an hour or so.
