trail is open, construction at starr is done. first 1/4 from South end is nice, watch for roots. the trail gets a little lost at college, the crossing is washed away so you stay on concrete path, Cross road then walk through SFA parking lot to the north end where you pick up trail again. side trails through arboretum on north end of trail that are nice and add another 2-3 tenths of a mile.
asked some SFA workers at Park on north side, a bicycle rider and there is not an extension of the trail to ne Stallings, it end at Austin St. From South end to Austin and back 5.10 miles on Garmin F5 Sapphire. my all trails app went wonky and added 6 miles so not counted.

I really enjoyed this trail. I did have a pretty nasty fall. Watch out for roots!!

About a mile from the house, very easy trail for a daily warm-up.

This trail is as easy as it gets. Flat, well groomed and lots of trees. Add the extension after Austin Street to North Stallings for a few more miles.

A few rooted wash outs but otherwise it flows fast and smooth along the creek and is very pretty. Great trail considering it's in the middle of town. The middle section between E. Starr and E. Main is the the dirt trail. The north and south ends are paved walkways and do not offer anything for experienced riders other than a warm up or cool down area. Fun trail for kids that aren't ready to hammer out 20 miles.

Great little trail. Me and my kids go mountain biking here. I would consider it moderate in difficulty due to tree roots on the trail. It is fun nonetheless.
