This is the best trail we’ve seen east of Raleigh so far. It’s safe for newbies, and still fun for advanced riders. It’s fast and fun, with plenty of room to stretch your legs and spin, and plenty of obstacles to keep your attention. Whoever laid this out knew what they were doing, ’cause the trail swoops and twists with just enough room through the trees to let you keep your speed up. The many pyramids and berms are all very well constructed for your increased riding pleasure. There’s a good bit of everything thrown in— except for any monumental climbs, that is. While it can get to feel like a bit of a maze in here, it’s not too tough to find your way through. We tried to follow the clearest track and the red flags, whenever possible. Tread: Singletrack - nothing but singletrack (well, except for two minuscule pieces of doubletrack that don's even count).

This was my first trail, this is NOT a beginner trail, as I was informed by another biker while gasping for breath 1.5 mi. in to it. It was much harder than I expected, being a beginner, but I'm glad I stuck it out. I managed to learn a lot about technical bike riding... and how bad I am at it. I did have fun while getting smoked in the process. I was expecting roots but not the uphills and downhills, logs, tight tree-throughs, sharp turns at the bottom of declines and generally hilly terrain. I will most certainly return any chance I get and learn on this trail as it is the closest to me. In my amateur opinion, for the area, this thing is surprisingly hard and a lot of fun, hard work. If you live within a few hours and are tired of your local trail, definitely check this one out and you'll be rewarded.

This trail is the toughest in the sandhill section of N.C.It has a lot of switchbacks and logs that you must bunny hop or get off your bike to get around and some pretty fun downhills and climbs.I would suggest to bring along plenty of water and to stay on the main trail(many shortcuts) until you get to know the course.Bicycle Post likes people to come to one of thier stores in Greenville to sign a release saying you will not hold them liable if you get hurt.
