This may well be the finest piece of legal singletrack within 1 hour of Raleigh. Another creation by the crew of Sanford Area Mountain Biking Association (SAMBA), this track uses every bit of available terrain for a joyous ride full of swooping turns, roller-coaster drops, unexpected switchbacks, and mad dashes through the woods. Every rider, from newbies to experts, will enjoy this trail. Reversing it at the end totals almost 10 miles, providing a serious workout. Nice shaded stream to relax beside after the ride. Lake provides opportunities for fishing and boating. Tread: 4.3 miles of prime Piedmont singletrack; 0.2 mile of pavement; 0.1 mile of gravel road.

This is my second time on this trail. Its about 9 miles total. Its a little tricky for first time riders, me. But I had a lot of fun. The first time my GFs and I cut it short, but the second time I did the entire trail. Expect a lot of rocks and tree roots. It is a good trail with lots of shade.

I am a new rider and once I got out on the first half of the trail, it turned out to be a little trickier than I was expecting. Mainly because of the many switchbacks and rocks. There was a good variety of up/down hill and straight away/ turns. The second half of the trail is a little more open. More rolling hills and good places to cruise along. I enjoyed the second half a little more because of my skill level. Take the bridge across the dam and follow the signs up the hill to start at the half-way point. Great place to ride for ANY level.
