Through extensive negotiations with the land owner we have been able to save a significant portion of the original trail. Much of the land has been logged but is growing up quickly and will soon be used for additional trail mileage. For the time being the trail has been rerouted and rebuilt to take advantage of the remaining woods and terrain. The current trail is approximately 10 miles long with a total of 500 vertical feet of climbing (an amazing feat considering that the trail is in the Coastal Plain). Many riders think the new trail is better than the old one, and it certainly is as good and is continuing to improve as it gets ridden and additional improvements are made.

The trails are accessed from Short Bridge Road which is off of NC 43 approximately 2 miles south of Falkland. Drive approximately 1/2 mile down Short Bridge Road and look for a sign marking the start of the trail at a thin line of trees on the left side of the road. Parking is available in the back of the field that you pass before reaching the trail entrance.

If you want to use the trail you must:

1. Sign a waiver at either of the Bicycle Post locations. This only needs to be done once. You may fill out a single day waiver at the trailhead.
2. Either become an EC Velo club member or pay a daily rate of $3 deposited in a drop box at the trail head. EC Velo members get year parking pass. $3= day parking pass.
3. Make a donation to help pay the lease.

IMPORTANT! Once the drop box is set up, anyone without a parking pass will be towed. No one will be towed until the drop box is in place and information is posted at the trail head.

The trail is on private land and as such is paid for with a formal lease with the owner as well as liability insurance. A corporation called the Bicycle Post Off Road Trail Club Inc. has been established to secure the lease, etc. We may in the future lease the trail under the name of EC Velo. The cost of the lease is $2500 annually. EC Velo Cycling Club has agreed donate up to $1500 to help pay the initial lease. Geri Smith, the owner of the Bicycle Post has generously donated the insurance coverage for the trail amounting to about $1300 annually. Their willingness to support local trails should be recognized by all users of the trail. Please support the Bicycle Post as often as possible when you are in the Greenville area.

All I got to say is this trail delivers lots of fun for whatever you might be looking for. Trail starts right off with a two choice descent; good and better cant go wrong either way. Lots of skills stuff (jumps,teeter-totter, bridge jump, creek crossings, ladder bridges and sections), hills, steep descents, roots, and climbs. I am sure there is much more than mentioned I still seem to find new things each time I go out there.

*Personally love the advanced creek section
*New sign out there, so super easy to find
*Very well marked
*cut offs for beginners or just plain tired
*Membership and waiver must be signed before entering this mountain biking heaven.

Well marked routes. More climbing than I expected, certainly a good thing. Ground is very sandy and drains extremely well, so if all other trails are closed these are probably open. Plenty of fun jumps and drops, overall a nice mix of trails.

Real familiar with this trail, as I used to live in Greenville. Surprising terrain; much more ups and downs than you might expect. Some great drops and technical obstacles. A nice ride that you can easily knockout in 2-3 hours (casual riding). Only negative: haven't been out there for a while but used to have trouble with following the trail/getting lost. There are a few maps along the trail, but still.

overall this place was a blast, a friend and i had just planned on running the trail, but once we got to the gully we ended up running it back and forth for a good 10 mins. the totters at the playground where a blast, especially the three totters linked together. there are several that an entry level rider can try out too. the trail was nice and packed down due to all the rain and snow we have had so the sandy climbs weren't as challenging as they would be in the summer. the view of the swamp is actually pretty cool, even heard some ducks but the logged out section was an eye sore, that will all be better in a couple of years though. its definitely worth the drive from the triangle to go and play.

The freeride stuff is relatively light duty but there are several wooden jumps scattered throughout the trail.

Nice terrain for eastern NC. Course design is well thought out.
