Need to Know

Mountain bikers must either be members of the Anne Springs Close Greenway or pay the daily use fee of $5 at the trailhead kiosk. This trail has a few narrow bridges and bikers with wide bars may have some clearance issues. Majority of trails are directional, pay attention to signage.


Anne Springs Close Greenway consists of two loops of varied difficulty. There are two trailheads, either the kiosk at the recreation complex or near the kiosk at the Adventure Road entrance. The majority of the trails are directional, so pay attention to signage.

Paradise Loop starts at the complex kiosk, and is 3.1 miles of flowy fun with a few short climbs. About halfway through, Paradise Loop intersects with the Tunnel Trail that's 1 mile long and meets up with Mill Pond (1.4 miles) after traveling under 460. Make a left onto Mill Pond which connects to Prairie Loop (3.1 miles) at gravity cavity. Turn left onto Prairie Loop and travel 3 miles with scenic views of the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks and Stumpy Pond.

Make a left at the intersection of Prairie Loop and Mill Pond to continue onto Mill Pond and return back to the intersection of it and Tunnel Trail. Take Tunnel Trail back to the Paradise Loop intersection and follow it to Avery Loop (.3 mile), stay straight back onto Paradise Loop and travel about a mile back to the start of the trail at the kiosk.

This is my "go to trail" and the closest to my house with any real challenges. Some may say too many roots but I say the roots just give it a litle more character and besides we do live in the southeast. What do you expect, a graded gravel path? It is a great place to ride! Tip; buy a membership and ride often!! Jun 9, 2016

Perfect trail for an intermediate level ride. Small down hill and uphill sections, sharp turns, tunnels, and challenging roots all throughout. Feb 18, 2017
The Greenway is undergoing some changes: we are losing Sugar Loop but adding some more miles of new professionally made machine trails. Some of the best challenges have disappeared but word is the new sections will be very challenging so only time will tell. This is still a great trail system with more land opportunities to expand many more miles of trail. Come out to check it out. Apr 26, 2017
