This is an excellent trail to better your skills as a mountain biker. Take caution on your 1st few laps to learn the trail. As you increase speed it will quickly prove to be the most technically challenging trail in the Triad!

 Most technical trail you'll find in the Greensboro, NC area.

 Trail feels a bit like it was made with no tools other than a rake and a leaf blower.

 I rode here recently and was able to clear everything. Technical, maybe if you consider taking another hard left or right after going with the flow for about 5 seconds and heading back up anther off camber filled with roots section of trail.
I've been mountain biking for 27 years and this is one of the worst trail systems I've ridden that is designed as a mountain bike trail system. I give The builder credit for trying but way too many miles were crammed into too small an acreage. This results in no flow whatsoever. I think the longest coasting section was maybe 7 to ten seconds long then it was back on the brakes for another hard turn and start off again uphill. Most technical trail in Greensboro? Maybe because the trails in Greennsboro aare built fairly easy. Fun? Sorry, this trail didn't bring me any enjoyment whatsoever.
If I'm gonna leave Greensboro to ride, I'd pass this and head to Moore Springs. Way more technical with better designed trails and sustained climbing and downhills. Danville even with a little longer drive.
