Definitely a pretty fun trail. However if I had to choose between this and Buckeye loop, I’m going with Buckeye.

Trail Buckeye Loop
Super fun flow trail. Lots of ‘roller coasters’ throughout the trail. I like riding it counter clockwise as opposed to clockwise.

Brumley Forest is the flowiest trail in the RDU area as of today. It's not overtly technical you gain speed and momentum in a lot of places.
