It was quiet.. I would not suggest running alone. Very secluded.

Fun ride. Did West Loop and started South Loop. Too much for first time out. Still enjoyed it. Will be back again.

Easy trail with a few technical spots. Much more level than the other shorter trails.

I thought this was a solid ride with a few technical attributes worth highlighting. There are some tricky gullies that could be quite challenging. I walked several of them. I also found the abundance of roots commanded concentration. The last hazard worth mentioning is how narrow some to the gaps are between very small trees. It's easy to catch a handlebar. The forest was beautiful. Several sections featured remarkable fern growth.

Beaver dam west loop is a mountain bike trail that connects to the south loop mountain bike trail. It is a fun, fast and a moderately technical trail. It can be used for hiking but it is primarily a MTB trail. Hikers should step aside for bikers. The south loop is 7 miles an a little more technical with a lot more climbing. Both trails are one way and once you start the south loop you are committed to the full 7 miles. These trails are some of the best in the greater Raleigh area. Trails are most always closed for one or two days after a rain.
