The trail is great considering it's location. Eastern NC is fairly flat, so the amount of up-downs you do on the trail is fairly surprising. The climbs are all short though and not incredibly difficult. 11 miles of trails overall is perfect to get a solid workout in. Fair warning, some sections of the trail are littered with roots making some of the climbs more challenging and there are a few sandy turns that will put you in trouble if you are not careful. A couple of smooth flat sections are great for making up some time. Fairly technical overall.

Currently the playground area needs some work as some of the wood is rotted, so be mindful of that.

Pretty easy trail to ride, not a lot of steeps hills to climb. Rode the entire trail, all the loops flow very nice together. Every time you get to the back of a loop you have the option to ride another loop further out. Trails do flow very nice few technical spots. Thing I enjoyed is you will be riding along and sign saying jump a head. They keep this place interesting for everyone with the scattered jumps and the terrain park. :::::WARNING:::: If you do find yourself in the technical stunt section they built do not make the same mistake I made. There ladders and bridges in it are hinged so when you come to the end of one it will drop to the ground so you don't have to jump off the end of it. I got my speed up to make a nice bunny hop type jump off the 4 foot end and just as I was starting my bunny hop the thing drops to the ground. Lets just say it was not a nice landing and I broke my seat in a place you don't want to do that. Other than that trail is definitely worth going to. The price to ride is 3 dollars a rider, I read somewhere previously that is was 2 but they raised it i guess. There is also a waiver you have to sign, they had some at the trail head.

It really is a great trail, especially for this part of North Carolina. There are some cool technical parts but it is also a really, really good cardio work out. I would suggest going with someone from the BP that knows the trail for the first couple times because it is very easy to get lost. If you do, just keep turning right, you'll get out eventually.

this trail is one that i have ridden since i was a young boy. i remembere vividly going to this track with my father, who was out on probation at the time, and enjoying the twisting turns and big jumps. after my dad sexually molested behind some bushes, i spent the next couple of years of my life in therapy, so i have not been able ride this trail in some time.

however i recently went back, and discovered that it is a prime location for midnight gay affairs. after talking to one of the 'riders' for a couple of minutes we started making passionate love in the delaptitated mens toilet block. at this point he forced my face into the cistern water and made me eat some flowers and tea towels. delicous delicous flowers.

This is really a post to see if we (Greenville Mountain bikers) can get a group ride together at the Bike Post trail. Maybe we can make a sheet at the trail to see if people are interested in getting together and riding. I don't care what level you are lets just get a good group out there so we don't have to do boring solo rides.

Either way is fine...usually counterclockwise.

The trail is very much back and better than ever. Here are some breif details: 1) Yes, some of the trail area was logged. 2) Many of the best sections of trail were left untouched through negotiations with the land owner. 3) A new trail (7 mile loop) has been rebuilt connecting the portions that were left with a lot of fresh mileage. The trail still drains GREAT so come on down when the Triangle trails are too wet to ride! 4) Through a lot of work (and monetary contributions) by local bikers the trail has re-opened and is ready to ride. If you want to use the trail you must: 1) Sign a waiver at either of the Bicycle Post locations. This only needs to be done once. 2) Either become an EC Velo club member (www.ecvelo.org) or pay a daily rate of $2 deposited in a drop box at the trail head. EC Velo members get year parking pass. $2= day parking pass. 3) Make a donation to help pay the lease. IMPORTANT! Once the drop box is set up, anyone without a parking pass will be towed. No one will be towed until the drop box is in place and information is posted at the trail head. Read more at this thread: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=131245 or at http://www.ecvelo.org.

Right now the only option is a single loop, both clockwise and counter clockwise are very good routes. In the future we will build some cut-offs to provide some shorter loops as well.

This trail is awesome! Very technical. Lots of roots. Steep uphills unusual for eastern carolina. There are some cool jumps and drops. A really fun teeter totter. Many logs and log piles. Also a nice steep section going in an out of a gully. Watch out for snakes! Make sure you bring plenty of water. Must sign a waiver at the bike post and joi n the EC velo club.

Customer Service

There are many shortcuts and spurs but the trail is generally well marked and if stay on the main trail you'll be okay.

BAD NEWS FOR THIS TRAIL. FOR NOW IT IS CLOSED, SO TECHNICALLY... NO ONE SHOULD BE OUT THERE. THE OWNER HAS DECIDED TO LOG IT OUT. WE ARE WORKIN HARD TO SAVE AS MUCH AS WE CAN. HOPEFULLY WE WILL BE ABLE TO SALVAGE SOME OF IT AND BUILD NEW TRAILS RUNNING IN AND OUT OF THE TREES. SORT OF LIKE AN OPEN COURSE. WHATEVER WE DO, HOPEFULLY WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER!
