    there are plenty of trails and a few are actually good, considering we have no actual mountains

    something for most skill levels, too...

    Awesome! How long is the trail? And what the condition of the trail? Lots of climbs or technical?

    jij0226, I know you mean well, but use a little common sense when posting about trail locations. You should only post about sanctioned public trails. If you post about unsanctioned secret trails, they will get shut down ruining for you and everyone else that uses it.

    However, that being said, thanks. Next time I visit my sister in Apex, I will see if my brother-in-law wants to go ride it.

    I don't care if your dietary fare consists of nothing but poop--human or otherwise--you ride MTB's and, as such, I'll ride with ya. And no, I won't force my diet on you and don't care if you order a giant rack of ribs; my veggie burger will be fine for me. Keep me posted, I can't usually make weekday rides since I work. I can do nights though. All day in weekends.

    How's New Light? I checked out Beaverdam a couple weeks ago and really enjoyed it! Like to check out New Light but heard it's only open on Sundays this time of year. I've only been riding now for 3 months and enjoy myself around Crabtree...

    Rocky and hillish from what I remember of my ride. To be fair, I only ever rode there once and I was super hungover. It's kinda far from me so I tend not to ride it. Seemed like my kind of place.

    New Light - Great trail but probably the toughest one in the Triangle. Lots of rocks and log-overs. 2-3 really steep, slippery climbs. No gap jumps. Great scenery. Easy to get lost. If you ride the perimeter and don't miss the right turn below the big rock garden it's about an 8 mile loop. Non-directional but most people ride it counterclockwise. Abide by the rules and don't ride it any other day of the week unless you want to get shot by a hunter.

    Try it out and just be prepared to a walk a few sections. Like a lot of trails, it is pretty tough the first time you ride it but it gets easier after you've done it a few times. Have fun!

    Agree w/ jnroyal. Also, the maps out on the trail are not up to date, the one on TriangleMTB.com is up to date, but my post count is too low to do the hyperlink.

    Some people ride Beaverdam in the winter and New Light in the summer.
    The end of hunting season in May coincides with New Light opening everyday as well as Beaverdam charging the entrance fee.
