    Anything reasonably close to Elizabethtown, NC?

    My dad will be going to Elizabethtown Saturday 11th through Tuesday the 14th for some para motor training.
    I'll be going along, and may as well bring the bikes to ride while he's in the training!
    What is around there that is meant to ride on? It can be open for night, but not a requirement.
    Doesn't really matter the difficulty. I'll gladly hit up anything from extremely difficult to boringly smooth, as long as it's a ride!

    Don't mind a little bit of driving, I'd day roughly an hour or so.
    If something is really nice, a bit more is ok, but I don't want to be gone all day driving! Already have a 10 hour drive down!

    I'll have my Remedy in the event of anything nice and techy, and probably my Scarp for anything smoother!

    Ok, I did see that one on MTB Project. There is another one a little over an hour away, the San Lee Full Tour near Sanford.

    I don't assume that everything is always on those things though.

    Blue Clay in Wilmington is pretty sweet. Dunno if its worth an hour drive though...

    I also saw Brunswick Nature Park.

    Really, anything is OK. It's better than not riding at all! I just prefer technically challenging stuff. But, if it's ride soemthing, or ride nothing, I'll ride something!

    Cape Fear Area Sorba has developed a trail system at Browns Creek Park in Elizabethtown. I've not ridden it, but it looks worth checking out.

    What about San Lee up in Sanford? It's going to be about 30min further each way, but the riding is way better.

    Edit: Missed where you mentioned San Lee earlier on. I'd say it's worth the drive if you want to get some decent riding in.

    Browns Creek and San Lee are the two worth checking out. Brunswick, and Blue clay are okay... and I appreciate the effort of the trail crew... but there is just not any elevation to play with. Browns Creek is a genuine good time! San Lee is probably worth the drive as well.

    Ok next question- are any of these open to night riding too?

    I'll be able to get out during the day. Dad will be in training all day, and with the time change here, it gets dark early!
    Is anything open at night that we can bring our Lupines and ride at night if need be?

    I'm not sure.... but I would give Browns Creek a shot. I can't imagine anyone out there giving you a problem. That town looooves the trail because people actually go to Elizabethtown now, lol
