Overview

This is a nice longer ride that connects up some of the best sections of Carolina North.

Description

From the parking lot, jump on the Pumpkin Loop north and in a short while you see a large dirt mound on the right. Head up the mound and stay right to access Crow Branch Overlook Loop. Heading through on some rolling terrain, eventually you cross a bridge and head up hill.

Pay particular attention here because multiple trails intersect. From here, the Crow Branch Overlook Loop doubles back but you want to go straight onto the gravel Pumpkin Loop. Shortly after you pass the paved Carolina North Greenway, look for a faint trail to your right and you'll be on the Farmhouse Spur.

This flows very nicely into the Wormhole Trail. Enjoy the full length of the trail until it finishes up at The Vine.

Head north on this gravel path until the trail drops down and crosses a stream. Look to the right to connect with the Neverland Loops. Stay right for a shorter path and when you come to the open meadow, stay right and reconnect with the Pumpkin Loop where you go right to the parking lot.

It's open and mostly dry. I think it might be above my skill level at the moment. So back to Crabtree.
