This featured ride tours three trails at Cub Creek Park. It crosses several nice bridges including one very memorable one on the Suspension Bridge Connector
Trail. The trails are mostly smooth and have little elevation change. Most of the turns are bermed, a trademark of the nearby trails at W. Kerr Scott Reservoir.
Beginning at the parking area on S. Bridge Street, follow the West Walking Track
and find a small bridge and short Connector Trail
that takes you to the Call Farm Loop
. The bridge and connector trail are directly across from the community garden.
At the intersection with the Call Farm Loop
, stay left and follow the flat section along the creek. When arriving at the Suspension Bridge Connector
, stay RIGHT, continuing on the loop, and ride the whole loop back to this spot (2.7 miles). When you return, take a left over the bridge and do a full clockwise loop of the Courthouse Loop.
This short 0.6-mi. trail is still on easy grades trail, but it does go through some rocker sections with a few tighter turns. After completing the loop and repeating the lower section, hop out of the woods and take follow the West Walking Track
to a bridge near the ballfields and where the ride began. Cross the bridge, cross S. Bridge Street and take a right on another bridge over the creek to access Perkins Place Loop
The Perkins Place is 1.8 miles, and "tight & twisty" compared to the Call Farm Loop
, with bigger berms and many more turns. Comparable trail: Zack's Fork Mountain Bike Trail
in Lenoir, NC. This featured ride follows a CCW loop on this section, taking a right at the first intersection. When finishing Call Farm, backtrack across S, Bridge St. to where the ride started.
