First trail at bottom of hill and across bridge is the blue (intermediate)this trail is 1 mile long and flows well. Trail 2 is green (beginner)but flows well and is fun for everyone, trail is 1.8 miles long. Trail 3 is a black and a lung buster. Trail is 3 miles long and isn't meant for beginners. Constant decents and accents that will leave you dead tired. Total of 6 miles to ride.

Summary:
My friends and I rode this course over the weekend. We started at the trail head where the mountain bike guide is, and rode the intermidate trail. However, we could not find any of the other trails. When we were getting ready to head home we saw a park ranger who showed us where the other trails were. The beginner and advanced trails are down the road. The beginner trail is a joke while the advanced trail is the exact opposite. Just be prepared to wear your lungs out. It's a descent ride if you live in the area, just don't make plans to drive any great distance.

Recommended Route:
Find a better trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Find time to ride Sherman Branch, Lake Norman, of the White Water Rafting Park unless you live in Davie County.

Summary:
We, the Davie County Cycling Assoc. are in the process of revamping the Rich Park trials. Our goal is to make it as fun and user friendly as possible.

The Beginner and intermediate trails are all but completed (Pending some minor tweaks)and very ridable, flowing nicely.

The Advanced trail is getting some much needed attention. We are in process of "Bench Cutting" a lot of the side hills and adding some more user friendly lines. It will still be an Advanced trial with a lot of climbing and technical aspects. 95% of the Free-ride section is still intact and functional (w/ Go rounds on everything). We hope to have the trail fully ridable very soon, w/ constant improvements through out the year, including new bridges, additional loops, and better sign-age.

Please come out and give the "New" Rich Park trails a shot.

If your interested in volunteering for trail building, please contact the Davie County Cycling Assoc. http://www.daviecycling.com/dnn/Home/tabid/475/Default.aspx

Recommended Route:
Try them all. :)

Summary:
I don't know if I just didn't see the trails or what, but there was nothing there, I rode one trail about a mile long and that was it other than the "nature trail" which only went along the woods next to the shelters and lasted all of about 400 yards. I could not find any other trails, anything that might have been a trail is overgrown, don't think I will be trying these again unless someone wants to fill me in on what I missed or let me know where to look.

Several enjoyable singletrack routes. Nice surrounding flora and fauna. My favorite part is the freeride area. There are some challenging platform drops (onto transitions or into gullies) and nice flowing trails. Some small jumps, a wall ride, and much potential for freeride fun for all abilities. Go down past the baseball field, and turn right into the woods. Please be careful and keep the place nice, so we can continue using it. It's worth the drive...

Summary:
OK..The first trip we took here was a disaster b/c the first two trails are very easy and somewhere at the end of the intermediate trail we kept ending at the same spot with nowhere to go, I say there were alot of leaves then and could have been covering up the trail end. We never found the "black diamond, lung buster"....WELL...let me tell, after further review I found it today and it's no joke, very hilly...ton of short and fast climbs, with a ton of long steady climbs, technical with a lot of logs rides, steep drops ins, some short and some long with long really high decent thats very steep, a few creek rides...for the trail to only be 3 miles or so...it will wear your butt out. Not for the weak hearted and I would highly recommend it to freeriders, and extreme cross country riders. Will I ride it again, you bet, only gonna make you better!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Tanglewood (fast single track), Hobby Park, Horizons Park, Salem Lake, WestWood, and Fisher River
