    trail recomendation

    ill be in cary nc next week and want to get out. what trails would you recommend within an hour from cary? i prefer more techy singletrack and anything without free fall drops or huge climbs is within my skillset.

    thanks!

    I am guessing you are going to be disappointed.
    That area just got lots of snow and freezing rain and although it will all be melted by next weekend there is supposed to be plenty of rain on Friday and additional showers possible Sat & Sun. Probably not going to be a good weekend for riding.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    It isn't about what you care to ride in. It is about the work the locals put in to the trails there to not have them shredded.

    Here is the link for trail status and a listing of all the trails: TriangleMTB.com, your source for mountain biking in Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill

    nate...it is a day by day thing around here so it would be hard to say what is going to be open on Monday. There are some really fun trails around here but it can be an iffy time of year.

    your best bet is to check that link that was posted above and watch the weather as you get closer. It is pretty swamped in most places right now from the snow.

    On top of the other replies about day to day and the link to TriangleMTB, your best bet is probably going to by San Lee trails. It is rocky and meets the techy singletrack criteria, plus it tends to handle rain better...BUT...it's my understanding that there has been some trail work done and you may end up skipping a big chunk of trail if it is too soft from rain. There is a description about it on TriangleMTB, but to find the most recent updates (particularly if it is closed), search the book of Faces for "San Lee Park Mountain Bike Trail"

    If it doesn't rain on Friday, there's a good shot at having trails open up.
