Alright trail for a light ride in the Croatan National Forest

Nick David

E-Bikes Unknown

Features -none-

Open during daylight hours. May be closed during inclement weather.


This trail is not especially well kept, so be on the lookout for obstacles, especially after inclement weather. If there has recently been some good rainfall, expect moderate flooding (2-6 inches) in some parts, and fallen leaves may cover parts of the trail. There are some white arrows on some of the trees indicating where to turn to help keep you on track.

Beware of spiders. Every now and then they'll build webs across the bike path. While not dangerous, they are an inconvenience and often cause a surprise.

Be aware and courteous as there are occasionally hikers on the trail. Be sure to call yourself out around some of those blind curves.

Be aware that the northern entrance that the left turn is not marked very well. Other than that it was a nice easy ride. My 10 yr old did well. 5.4mi

Plants and such are starting to grow into the trail some of which had thorns that will get you on the arms. If there's a work day there let me know! 6.2mi
