A growing trail system that celebrates the unique geography of the Sauratown Range.

Leslie Kehmeier


Moore's Springs is made up of multiple loops that range from rocky terrain with creek crossings to sections of sweeping turns.

Need to Know

While MST is free to ride, it's certainly not free to maintain. Visitors can leave donations in a box near the trailhead (just look for the old rickety farmhouse). They can also make donations via Paypal on the MST webpage.


Although the loops at Moore's Springs can be ridden in any direction, this description covers a counter-clockwise option leaving from the farmhouse.

From Moore's Springs campground, head down the 4-H campground road and look for a faint trail that heads right. You'll start with a drop down to a creek crossing and head under a bridge. When you hit Moore's Spring Rd, head right at the intersection to access Major Tom.

This part of the ride has some nice, fast, and flowing sections with good berms. It's marked with blue hexagons. When you hit Major Tom, turn left and ascend gradually over rocky terrain. Stay left at the intersection with Land of the Lost.

Enjoy the serpentine nature of this trail, marked with white hexagons. Other than a couple of rocky creek crossings, this trail is fun and flowy. At the intersection with Original Loop, stay left and continue cruising on swooping trail. There are a few nice berms on this section of the ride.

When you get back to the parking lot, cross back over the road and finish on the right side of North Side Trail.

History & Background

Tony McGee, the mastermind behind MST and a Stokes County native, spearheaded work on MST in 2009 with help from volunteers and a federal stimulus program. By 2010, his crew had blazed three miles of trail, and they upped it to six the following year. Trail building is continuing and include plans to eventually have 20 miles of trails with sections for beginners and experts.

Northside trail is impossible in spots in both directions, but if walk up those bits, the rest of the trail is definitely worth it. Excellent design. 10mi — 1h 00m

It's a blast! The designer used the land well. Has that flow and keeps you pushing up the short hills to get the next downhill. Pretty cool way of getting to the top. The rocks are awesome and Swell Job! to those that built it. A lot of work there. We will be riding these trails when we can. Closer than Kerr Scott with better features and flow than anything around. I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow. I'm ready to go back. Feb 9, 2018
