Reedy Fork

Average Rating:    (3.2 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 10

The trail primarily follows the Reedy Fork Creek (hence the name) from the Lake Townsend Dam down to Lake Jeanette at Plainfield Rd. Trail difficulty mostly roots and narrow clearances, though one side section has a technical climb/descent. 1st 1/3 Starting from Lawndale Dr., trail is twisty, sometimes wet, flat singletrack following creek, then crosses two bridges and heads into drier woods. Trail forks at second bridge - most keep right. 2nd 1/3 Trail climbs gradually though forest, then drops down before gearing up for the one big climb on the trail. Take right fork for steep downhill leading to long, very steep uphill climb to rejoin trail. If you don't want more roots, turn around here and stay right. Watch for sharp left on this fork - if you go right instead, you'll find doubletrack leading to the dirt road heading north along the petroleum pipeline ROW. Otherwise ride on to go back to the second bridge. 3rd 1/3 Trail is mostly flat but becomes very rooty all the way to Plainfield Rd.

Summary:
A nice trail that links up Blue Heron with the rest of the GSO trails ie Wild Turkey, Owls Roost etc...

This trail has been somewhat neglected next to the two newest trails Blue Heron and Wild Turkey. BUT, as it is the link between the BH and WT, Reedy is starting to get more attention with new bridges, reroutes, and some general trail buffing courtesy of the Greensboro Fat Tire Society.

Mostly a cross country ride with little technical challenge aside from the occasional root. A couple elevation changes are found to mix it up a little. A nice little connector trail.

Recommended Route:
Either way is fine...

Summary:
Just thought I would let everyone know, rode the trail today and it is looking great. But the new seasonal growth is coming in on the first part of the trail (from main entrance) and we need to ride the trail to push this stuff back.

Summary:
I liked this trail a lot. I will agree, not the greatest trail in the Triad, but each trail around here has different purposes. As said, this is a great trail for a beginner. It has some of everything so someone can get a feel for their bike, legs, etc. without feeling "baby'ed". It would also be a great warmup trail on a "long bike day" since so many of Greensboro's great trails are nearby. The view is also a very redeeming quality, it would be nice next time to stop and just watch some wildlife while out there. It is no Owl's roost, but it is still a small hidden gem.

Recommended Route:
On this trail, no real route, you park at either end and go.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bur-mill (all 3 trails there) and country park, Bald Eagle is good if you like roots

Summary:
I cut my mountain-biking teeth on this trail but now usually ride it every year or so for a change of pace and for old times sake. Not really a very good trail, especially compared to the other area trails. Good place to go if you want some privacy as usually you won't run into anyone else out here.
