Summary:
Nice flow to the trail design. This is a very fun trail. Not really technical, but there is enough fast twisty, rooty stuff to keep it interesting. You won't find any downhill, so if you're into big look elsewhere. It's just a great overall cross-country trail.

Summary:
FYI: Has a nice picnic area, fishing location, and I guess has a frisbee golf course too.
As for the trails: Great three set trail system, perfectly maintained like the others say. I hate when trail system used beginner, intermediate, advanced as the advanced, while had some nice woo-de-doos, I wouldn't call advanced.
The only oddity was that in the advance section, there are a bunch of spliter trails through all the woo-de-doo sections so I wouldn't call it a traditional loop. You can stop your loop, hit a bunch of woo-de-doos then continue on with the traditional loop back to the road.
There is a lot of land back there, I hope that those involved in the upkeep and development will map out a new routes through that advanced area. I've seen areas with that much land with over 20 miles of interlaced routes and since the trees are not that dense, you could have a cris-crossy trails without any problems. I would love to help with trail work (I have no idea about design)

Recommended Route:
If you are a bigginer or know a bigginer, let me suggest the beginner route and if you handle that...then...the intermediate route.
For everybody else...the advanced route.
I'm a fayetteville guy who will be spending more time at Hog Run as I'm tired with Governors Creek. San Lee is a lot of work for little payoff and the advanced woo-de-doo sections and the jump area area blast although not that aerobically challenging.

Summary:
Rode this trail in the early evening, when it was a cool 65 degrees and sunny. Beautiful. Superbly maintained, well-marked, and huge fun. For advanced riders, these trails really aren't that challenging, but since I'm not one of those, I loved it. The short easy loop and longer intermediate loop are fast and fun, and the advanced loop is great, with the only difficult parts (for me) being the long whoop-de-doo section. I didn't see another soul during my hour-long ride; this is what it's all about. Great trails for beginner - intermediate, but advanced riders/adrenaline junkies will probably be bored. Definitely call to verify trails are open.

Recommended Route:
Whole thing.

Summary:
Very well maintained. Recently added a set of small doubles and two jumps with trannies. Very smooth, little rock or roots. They are slowly adding beginner freeride stunts which are great to get your feet wet with or if you generally ride XC and want to mix it up without the 5+ft exposures. Great trail to take a true newbie, not a great trail if you want to test out the limits of your full sus.

Recommended Route:
Come to a junction take a left. When crossing the road, stay straight (you will come back on the trail just to your right)

Summary:
I can't really agree with the trail rating system of these trails but nonetheless, I had a good time. I believe the ratings of "beginner", "intermediate", and "advanced" are relative to each other and not relative to other trails or IMBA standards. These trails are tight, fast, and very well maintained. You could easily just ride several times around on any of the loops you wish to get the mileage you are looking for.

Other than a couple of log crossings, I saw nothing very technical to speak of. On the "advanced" loop, there where several whoops to mix things up a bit. I guess if you are looking for technical trails, keep looking, but if you are looking for well maintained trails where you can spin off a lot of miles (by doing multiple laps), you might give these are try.
