Ridden Trail:
Ridden Once

Summary:
Ridden once since I thought it was kapput.

A rediscovery, I work very close and have thought that the trails were completely gone, lost to the world of DICKs Sporting goods. I used to ride them consistently back in the late 90s. I decided to ride the trail along the power lines when I saw that there was still a trail there. You can tell that it has not had much traffic in a while but the trail is very ridable and marked. The folks putting in the effort deserve commendation. There is a few miles of ridable trail in there and I gotta say some of it will be challenging. Let me know if you need some help.

Ridden Trail:
Once a month

Summary:
What's left of these trails has been repaired by folks from TriangleMTB. There is about 4 miles now with a few tech spots but nothing huge. A good after work ride place if you live in N. Raleigh.

Recommended Route:
Unfortunately, due to the destruction of trails and corporate america paving every stretch of woods in the state, there are a few dead ends on this trail. You can figure it out though.
