This trail is the perfect backdrop for your next scenic hike or adventurous mountain bike ride. At just under five miles, this trail features a tight single track, moguls, sweeping burms, log pyramids, bridges of varying sizes, woop-dee-doos, some small climbs and a big rock jump. This trail connects with two other watershed trails, Owl's Roost and Reedy Fork, for more continuous rides. Put all three together, and you have a great long distance ride

       Excellent trail for the Piedmont region. 2 decent climbs / down hills in the other direction. Plenty of fun flowy turn sections and a few optional technical features to keep things interesting. Might be Greensboro's best overall trail.

       Kist a note the trails were listed as open, very surprisingly given the condition and the ruts people were leaving
