Overview

Now reaching just under 13 miles in length, from the very beginning, you'll not believe this trail is located in Southeast North Carolina. Where did these hills come from? Brown's Creek Nature Park has it all. Climbing, Downhills, XC, Switchbacks, Bridges, etc. There are no other trails east of I-95 as challenging as this one. Great design, great ride.

Description

Just off of I87, Brown's Creek Bike Park and Nature Trail is located in Elizabethtown, NC. Brown's Creek has features that are extraordinary for the region.

Just under 13 miles, Brown's Creek is a great flow trail with hills that will make you think you are in the foothills of the mountains when faced with challenging climbs, fast drops, and creek crossings. Not to mention the occasional jumps for the more aggressive riders.

Annually, Brown's Creek is the host site of many fundraisers and races for mountain bikers, trail runners, and hikers that want to test ones skills or to just enjoy what Brown's Creek has to offer.

Great track. Really is the best I have been on east of 95. One place I saw you can shorten the ride. Could use more signs for directions. 15.1mi — 2h 12m
