 WORK OF ART! Call (336) 921-3390 for trail status.

Few spicy areas make sure you are not asleep in the zone. This trail keeps you on your toes. Enjoy!

 Short smooth flow trail that's full of fun. Lots of smaller sized jumps and sweet turns.

 Was there today. Please be aware, lots of branches, and a couple trees down. Trail is covered with leaves and is wet underneath. The flow would be great if the leaves were removed.

 Seriously good fun. Like the previous comment, every turn has a berm and a dropper will make your day even more flowy. I want to buy the trail designers/builders a beer.

Why is no one riding the Headwaters trail off this trail. It is very similar with some rocks. The leaves need to get packed and a little cleanup done but it is a great addition to the Warrior Creek loop.

 This is a seriously fun and flowy single track. Some nice bridges, couple technical rock sections and connects to a decent pump track. Good hour and a half long ride and good to have a dropper post Smile
