Update

A nice singletrack ride in Carolina North Forest.

Joe Rana

Overview

Closed when wet.
This is a nice singletrack for an upcoming intermediate rider. A few challenges but overall a nice ride. The crossings are fairly well marked with location markers and directional arrows.

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.

Description

Take the Maytag doubletrack from Seawell School Road to reach the start of this loop. 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 starts just west of the Duke Energy Corridor trail cross over and ends just before the Tripp Farm trail cross over.

It's less rocky than some other trails in this area. Some very large tree trunks that that you can ride around if you are not up to jumping over them. Plenty of smaller tree trunks to practice your skill. An enjoyable ride. Look for Deer and Turtles along the way.
