This can be a fast track, and is about 7 miles long if you ride all sections (technically has 2 loops). The trail has good flow; there are a lot of up and down, but it never feels like you are climb extremely long hills. The trail winds through the woods, and there are quite a few roots throughout. There are a few areas that have rock gardens, and there are some tight corners spread all over as well. In addition, the trail is in the middle of nowhere, so be mindful when searching for it. Be careful on this trail if it is wet!

Awesome trail for beginner to intermediate skill level. They do have an optional difficult trail called "the ghost"...so they got something for everyone at Governor's Creek. Little to no sand, which is always good. Highly recommend! Enjoy!

Beautiful; be sure to view the "healing waters". Pay attention for bikers and give right of way, the trails are narrow.

While directions will get you there, there are currently no signs at the road to mark the sight. Perhaps because it's on private property.

Nice clean and well marked trail on private property. Lots of fun with some ups and downs along with some twisty turns as you bump along over some roots. There are a couple of more difficult parts that have the option to bypass if you want.
