Description [Suggest Changes]

The Advanced Loop (red signs) is accessed via the Beginner Loop (white signs) and Intermediate Trail (yellow signs). This is the most interesting section of the ride, and has several large rocks, logs, whoops and other obstacles. There are two very short side loops marked "more difficult" with tough climbing obstacles that are fun to try several times. The Advanced Loop is around four miles long and gets more challenging as you get further away from the parking lot.

This was one trail I did not like. Not flowy lots of roots. Good place to practice your uphill strength.

As someone said on Triangle MTB, this trail was designed by MC Escher. You seem to spend all your time going up and never coming down. Actually, you come down on the second half of the trail (riding clockwise), but the design is very twisty and not that enjoyable. Not much opportunity for speed. The trail doesn't seem to get used much, and it's covered in pine needles and leaves. This keeps it wet and makes it slippery. There were a few times I had to walk my bike because I couldn't get traction. Feb 23, 2018
