A fun trail if you can find it under the pine needles Nothing too challenging aside from a few steep sections here and there. Start at the school road and combine it with the Crow Branch loop for around 10 miles of singletrack.

      This is my favorite trail in Carolina North forest, it’s pretty rocky and filled with lots of roots. It’s still pretty fun, but Carolina North has never been at the top of my list.
