Hanging Dog Trail is 4 miles total out-and-back gravel service road, combined with to-be-determined singletrack loops off the main out-and-back. There are two fairly long climbs, both of which are steep. The road has a thick layer of gravel in most places. Construction plans call for singletrack loops to complete the total mileage available on this route.

Fun trail, but difficult to follow. Must have a turn-by-turn guide and an odometer to figure it out. Lots of briars at the beginning can be avoided by riding up the road and entering the trail at the the road instead of the parking lot. Thick leaf and pinestraw ground cover make traction an issue on the climbs. Overall a fun ride! Murphy, NC is in a dry county! No relaxing beer after the ride!
