“This ride connects the outer loop of singletrack trails on the airport side of Carolina North.”— Russell Hobart
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.
