Trail Reviews

Date Ridden: 04/28/2007  -  JR of Hillsdale, NC
Route Taken: Started out going counter-clockwise taking all options,then reversed and rode clockwise.
Opinions: Nice compact trail with a lot of short fairly steep inclines,has a few log crossings and a couple of small bridges,there are a few fast spots for getting up some speed,not real technical but all the short steep inclines would be a little much for beginners,its a short trail at around 3 miles but ride it in both directions and its pretty good,only drawback is there is about a 150 yard incline back to the parking lot that will give you a good workout before you leave

Date Ridden: 02/21/2002  -  James Stokes of Salisbury, NC
Route Taken: I rode the outer loop first, counterclockwise, without riding the Technical loops. Next, I rode it again and included all four of the optional, technical loops.
Opinions: Taking this route made for a powerful hard workout! This trail's not as Hobby Park because it's all crowded into a small spot of land, not like Hobby which is spread out all around the whole park. It is a good trail with lots of tough climbs and sharp drop-offs. The only detraction was that you had to keep looking at the same landscape over and over again.
