took my German Shepherd for a trail run and we both loved it. trail was in excellent shape and bikers were very respectful. beautiful views of the lake along the whole trail.

Beautiful trail. It was quite narrow, so that when bikes approach you have to get off the tail and out of the way, for that reason it might only be good for dogs who are calm and used to being crowded.

Beautiful. There was a point close to marker 14 that I stopped and did not hear anything. It was total and complete silence. This was my first trail hike in over 10 years and it felt like so much more than 4.5 miles. I hurt in strange places right now but I can not wait to do it again.

Great hiking, but the lack of signs and clear directions turned a 4.5 mile hike into a 9 miler!! Beautiful setting just needs better signs.

Great trail to run on. Hills aren't crazy long so it's definitely a favorite.

It was a great afternoon outing with the dogs - heavy biking traffic so keep your pups close! There is a semi-hidden bench at one point off the side of the trail where you can sit hidden from view and feel like the only person at the entire lake!

Intermediate to experienced MTB trail. Be aware of trail closures when wet or snowy. Excellent corse that will challenge all riders.

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.

This trail has an almost roller coaster like feel to it and there's always new challenges some parts have long difficult uphills and others are curvy downhills the over all trail is not extremely difficult but you do have to pay attention to what your doing because of the trails lack of upkeep the people who ride it take great care of it but in some places you may have to get of your bike and crawl under fallen trees or go around rocks but overall one of the most fun trails I've ever done

Owl's Roost is part of a great trail system in Greensboro, NC there are several trails from country park out to Owl's Roost and Wild Turkey and weaving through Bur-Mill Park. Lots of fun for all experience levels. Lots of roots exposed on these trails so get ready for some bumps, but that is part of riding in NC.
