One Way Only:
This is designated as a directional trail.
Need to Know
You can access the trail by riding from the Williamson Preserve parking lot down to the Salamander Loop
or you can come up from the Neuse River Trail, ride part of the Salamander Loop
and then jump on it there.
This trail starts and ends at the Salamander Loop
. It's directional but the direction changes in the middle of the week and creates two different trail experiences.
The terrain is very rolling with some fairly steep climbs and descents. You can expect a lot less roots and a bit more rocks than a typical Raleigh area trail. There are a couple of small wood drops and skinnies scattered through the trail but they are situated for use only on the later days of the week (the counter-clockwise direction). Nothing here is particularly difficult but with a little speed added things can come at you quick and the trail will certainly keep you on your toes.
The area doesn't see a ton of traffic so you'll often encounter deer, squirrels, rabbits, and snakes on the trail.
