Need to Know

There are some roots and rocks that are slippery when wet. If there is any moisture on the ground, use extra caution. Carolina North is often open when other trails are not after a rainfall, and you should not assume that "being open" implies "dry conditions."

Description

The loop is signed with numbered markers - you can follow them in order by starting at the entrance from the Sewell School parking lot and riding the trail CCW. This singletrack winds through the west side of Carolina North Forest. Part of the trail is set up with two singletracks next to each other for racing. This side-by-side section starts just west of the Duke Energy Corridor trail cross over and ends just before the Tripp Farm trail cross over.

While this trail is less rocky than some other trails in this area, it is, much list most of CNF, rather rooty and can stay damp days after rainfall. There are no real features to speak of, but depending on the state of trail maintenance, there may be a few smaller logs across the trail. An enjoyable ride. Look for Deer and Turtles along the way.
