Typical eastern Carolina trails - some sand, lots of roots and short, choppy climbs. A fun time.

Overview

This trail system has a varied terrain. There are some short, flow sections connecting to short, choppy climbs, quick turns and lots of roots. Most of the bridges seem a bit sketchy but I rode every one I came to and they seemed solid to ride on.

Not all the trails seem well-ridden but are marked. The marking doesn't always make sense but I made it through the first full ride without much trouble and minimal confusion. The trails closer in appeared to be recently blown so it appears they keep a pretty close eye on trail conditions. Speaking of conditions, there are a number of fall line sections that are quite eroded and a fun challenge (not impossible) to ride - either climbing or descending.

Need to Know

This is private property and managed by Bicycle Post bike shop. They ask for a $3/day or $20/year donation.

Description

From the parking area, head west onto the Swamp Loop. This is the longest loop in the area and provides access to and from the parking area. Head along Tyson creek as it goes south through the "Gully Cut-off" and "The Switchbacks". Just after 1.6 miles, you'll come into the "Off Camber Hill" section before continuing onto the Creek Loop.

The Creek Loop is a short loop between the Swamp Loop and BC Loop.

Next, continue onto the BC Loop as it dips south on either side of some open fields on "The Outer Limits" and boardwalk sections.

At the five-mile mark, return to the eastern half of the Creek Loop to head back north up the eastern edge of the loop. Cruise through "The Playground" at the 6.2-mile mark and make your way past The Pipeline (optional loop), returning to the parking area.
