      The ultimate beginners ride, Umstead is a great place to check out with the whole family. If you're looking for an easy ride, or you want to take the family out mountain biking, Umstead is the place. There are several miles of gravel roads in this State Park, winding through dense woods and over a few creeks. It's easy to forget that you're right smack in the middle of the Triangle region, except for the occasional 737 rushing overhead. (The airport is right next door.)
