Country Park Trails

Average Rating:    (4.38 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 8

Mostly singletrack. There is a gravel lot that is crossed and also some pavement can be incorporated into you loop. But, watch out for walkers and other slower riders on the pavement! This trail has a few climbs to get your heart rate up a little bit but nothing that is sustained for too long. It's a good flowing trail and typically fast and rolling. More additions have been added to give length to the loop. Don't cut through to other trails that you see because you'll just get lost. There is an intended loop so just follow it the best you can. Some stunts are being erected to test the freeriders in us. Ride at your own risk! You've been warned. The trail typically stays pretty dry but keep off for at least 24 hours after a rain and longer if it was heavy. It saves the trail. The bottom line is that this is a great after work ride. For more length, add some laps or head down the greenway to the Owls Roost singletrack which is part of Bur-Mil park.

Trail Directions
Well there are several ways to enter Country Park and get onto the single track. Probably the easiest to find and best place to enter is at the Lewis Recreation Center parking lot. It is just off of Pisgah Church Road near the intersection of Battleground Avenue and Pisgah Church. Park in the lot closest to Safety Town (a kids traffic safety miniature town) and enter the trail in the corner of the lot. This trail is a loop that will bring you back to where you started but it crosses some areas where you may not find the next section of trail. The best thing to do is get another rider to show you around. Or, visit Cycles deOro (336)274-5959 and someone there may be able to help. Feel free to e-mail me at scvines70@yahoo.com and I can hopefully meet you there for a ride. A kiosk will be erected in the near future at the trail head with maps and event info.

Summary:
Copperhead tral aka Country Park is a really fun trail . It has lots of flowing ups and downs and a good amount of bermed turns that allow you to carry your speed . The only negative I can say about the trail is that route finding was difficult , but this was the first time we were there . We plan to go back next weekend and try to find more of the loop.

Recommended Route:
We went in at Safety town . The trail head is at the back of the parking lot behind Safety town .

Summary:
The Country Park trail has undergone a lot of work since the last time I rode it. WOW, what a difference! And in a GOOD way! Lots of berms have been added, a few jumps put in, some parts have been totally re-routed, and a little bit has been added on. Nothing too technical. It's fast and flowy...and it's a blast! This trail was always the "red-headed stepchild" compared to Owl's Roost and Wild Turkey. Now it just might be better than either of those trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wild Turkey
Owl's Roost
Hobby Park
Northeast Park

Summary:
The Greensboro Fat Tire Society has recently been doing considerable trail work on Country Park, one of the older of the MTB trails in the GSO area. Incorporating the latest IMBA style building techniques, the trail has seen sustainable reroutes that have eliminated old fall line sections. Also numerous berms, rock armoring, and bridges have improved both challenge and flow. As of this posting, improvements are still being made but trail is open and rideable. Work on the primary trail should be finished by end of summer '10. Highly recommend making part of your ride next time in the G-spot. Its similar in many respects to Wild Turkey.

For trail status (trail is closed when wet) go to www.greensborofattire.org.

To contact local GSO riders go to our local rider forum: www.biketriad.com

Recommended Route:
Get with a local or stop by Recycles, Cycles De Oro, or Revolution Cycles for trail info. Also visit websites mentioned above.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Connect this with Owls Roost, BurMil Park, Wild Turkey, Reedy Fork and our lastest trail, Blue Heron for an epic day of riding in the G.

Summary:
Country Park Mt. bike trail located off Battleground Ave / Pisga Church Rd. in Greensboro, NC right next to "safety town" is a trail that offers a lot of fun. Being fairly new to biking, I find that it is as challenging as I need it to be, or more. It has fast sections, with somewhat tight turns, plenty of fairly steep up hill runs, and average technical challenges along the way. Logs, roots, drop offs, small jumps, loose gravel, and a few bridge crossings keep you on your toes.
The trail is almost 6 miles of single track, recently lengthened from about 4.5 or so. It winds through some pretty woods, and some of the historic Battleground area. Some of the newer sections may be hard to follow until you become more familiar. Also located in the same parking area is the "greenway" paved trail which will take you to Birmil Park, 5 miles away...which offers 3 or so different Mt. bike trails...about 10 miles worth from what I recall. So, if you're up for a long day of riding, you can park in one spot and ride all day long, on a bunch of different routes. If you're up for lots of air time, the "free ride" section is also available to challenge your jumping skills. (I haven't tried it)

Recommended Route:
From the parking lot "safety town" fence line entrance the trail splits left or right....I personally go right and follow the route. The newly added sections may not be as visible, but the main trail is easy to follow.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Greenway
Birmil Park
Free - ride section of Country Park
Reedy Fork Trail (right next to lake Brandt spill way on Lake Brandt Road)
