Summary:
This is a fun ride! I was surprised to find something this fun in eastern NC. I travel all over the SE, and see a lot of trails. I expected this area to be too flat for a good ride. There are no big climbs, but it certainly is not flat! There were some obstacles but as stated below, all were fun, but none were challenging (except for the rather high plywood jump ramp which I think would have collapsed under my weight). Rocky Mount has a nice trail here. But it could use some directional markings. I wish I could rate it 4.5, but I guess a 5 will do. Great Ride!!!

Recommended Route:
Note: The subdivision sign is no longer there. It is now a non-descript street with houses. Sorry, I forgot to get the name of the street. I don't think it is Collinswood.

Summary:
This is a very good loop for this part of the state (ie) no mountains. The loop is a nice fast single track with a few ups and downs, log crossings etc. No major elevation changes. If you live in this area or are passing through stop off and give it a try. Don't make a special trip if you live further west... take that hour and head towards the mountains. I'm giving this trail 5 wheels cause for the area its the best your gonna find. I think three is a little harsh IMHO

Recommended Route:
Either way

Other recommended trails in the same area:
301 trail, New Light Trail Raliegh, Bycle Post Trails neear Greenville

Summary:
this is a fun trail and a good place to ride when you don't have a lot of time but would like a decent workout. my only complaint is that you kind of have to guess which direction to go and which trails to follow. i recommend this trail highly.

Recommended Route:
i have only ridden the trail counter-clockwise and it seems like a good direction to ride.

Summary:
The only other place I've ridden in Rocky Mount is the trail behind Nash C.C. and that is INSANE, so I wasn't sure what I was getting into when my bro took me to the Collinswood Trail. I really liked it. If you're a XC rider it's not going to challenge your endurance, but if you're looking for fun and some decent-but-not-too-technical challenges it fits the bill. There are lots of good creek crossings (with makeshift bridges) and log crossings which test your skills. Some good downhills, short climbs and lots of twists & turns. I worked up a good sweat, enjoyed the ride and left with a smile. Kudos to the folks that put this trail together.

Recommended Route:
I've ridden the trail twice, once in each direction, and either way is good.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nash Community College (but only when it's dry)
