Really awesome trails, right near Lake Brandt which has Kayak rentals, and a really neat little island you can paddle out too. Another trail I haven't done in years, for sure on my to-do list when I'm back in NC!

Good trail system. Roller coaster at times and flat and flowy other times. Looks like they take care of it pretty well. The fire road was rutty. But overall a good trail.

I brought my bike from OK on a road trip and found this gem. I'll be back here. As well as Rocky Knob in Boone.

Awesome, fun trail. Rugged and fast. This trail has everything for all skill levels; climbs, hills, jumps, free ride... A lot of places for you to go fast but rugged enough to get a good workout. Best point of access is the Lake Jeanette Marina. I really enjoyed this ride.

three section to this trail
from old battleground trailhead to A&Y greenway is pretty flat. From greenway next 1.5-2.5 miles is pretty hilly with lots of up & down. last 0.75 mi to lake brandt marina is less vigorous again.

restrooms, other facilities at marina

note map shows trailhead off cotswald which is in a wrong place...you can get to A&Y greenway near there and take greenway to middle of trail, but real trailheads are on Old Battleground and at Lake Brandt Marina

Varied topography. Much of west end is pretty flat, with a few 30-50 ft climbs in middle third. East end between Plainfield road and Church street has a couple of really steep 'ravines'--these are really tough for a beginner (me!)

3.75 mi each way out and back total 7.3
