Carrollton Nike Park Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is near the town of Smithfield just north of the James River Bridge. Scenery includes an attractive background of hardwoods surrounding a pond. This is an excellent introduction to single-track riding with minimal ups and downs; bring plenty of bug spray.

It will appeal to experienced riders and intermediate riders who are ready to take the next step into the world of single-track but who may not be up to the challenge of the more technical or steeper sites such as Powhite Park in Richmond. Several short climbs and descents, as well as bridges of varied construction from logs to boards, make the loop interesting without unduly taxing novice single-trackers. The pond forms an attractive background for this ride, but it also serves as a breeding ground for mayflies and mosquitoes from April through Sept."

A good course with lots of shade, which is nice when it is in the middle of the summer. My only thought would be that the bridges are in need of repair. Makes some of the blind decents a little hairy if it is your first time there. The advice of bug spray is best heeded. I found lots of bugs and ticks when I was finished.
