Overview

This is the best MTB trail east of the I-95 corridor in North Carolina.You'll be treated to hills (yes, hills) and rolling singletrack through beautiful hardwood forest.

Description

Now 7 miles in length, from the very beginning, you'll not believe this trail is located in Southeast North Carolina. Where did these hills come from? Brown's Creek Nature Park has it all. Climbing, Downhills, XC, Switchbacks, Bridges, etc. There are no other trails east of I-95 as challenging as this one. Great design, great ride.

Brown's Creek features a full loop starting in the parking area. There is also a practice track for all skill levels adjacent to the parking area and next to the trailhead.

If you are a GPS / Strava user, your distances will be less than the true length of the trail.
