The trail system at Rich Fork is a total of 2.2 miles right now (with plans to build another mile in a second phase.) What the trails lack in distance is made up by diverse quality and elevation gain. There is some great faster flow sections, good amount of elevation (for the piedmont), a water crossing and some tighter sections all make for a trail that is a lot of fun. Located in the middle of High Point we now have a local option where we can ride a few weekday laps with out driving to Greensboro or Winston-Salem. The county Parks department is still working on directional signing so load the trail forks map
on your phone.

       Congrats PFTS you guys have built one fun trail. Finally had the opportunity to get rowdy today. Love the sweeping berms and fast flow. Climbs are challenging but not punishing and if traffic is light is a fun ride in all directions.
