Hagen Stone Park Professional Review and Guide
"This is a fine beginner trail, lots of easy cruising with just a hint of true, rocky singletrack. More advanced riders can just soar along the whole length. One tough stream and a huge log to keep you humble. Tread: Mostly wide doubletrack covered with pine bark chips. Short section of hard-packed dirt singletrack."
--Timm Muth, Mountain Biking North Carolina (Falcon Guides).
This is a great trail to introduce people to MTN biking on, or if you have a family you can bring them and let them play in the park while you ride. This trail is used more by walkers than bike riders so please be courteous so we don't get booted off this trail.
This trail has a little bit of everything, technical rock garden, roots, logs to hop and two with ramps 2' high, and a doublewide trail to build your endurance on.
Start at the gravel parking area on the left after the Owl at the park entrance. Go toward the pond and go left up the hill on the logging road, you will see a red post, go right here to start the trail. Going this direction every time you come to a trail intersection turn left. You will eventually come back out on the other side of the paved road you came in on about 50 yards from the Owl. The limited singletrack on the trail flows much better going this direction, you should be able to hop all the logs going this way except for the two log ramps.
To go the other direction, go back across the paved road from the parking area past the Owl and start on the trail at the end of the gravel road (signs show start) if you go this way turn right every time you come to a trail intersection. When you go through the rock garden you are near the end. You will then come to a logging road go left here back to the parking area.
I consider myself an intermediate rider and I've done laps as described in as little as 20 minutes when no runners or walkers are on the trails to slow me down. Don't know exactly how long it is 4 miles seems about right per lap.
