Mountain Bike Trails – Kingsnake Trail

Trail begins at the interim parking lot at 2568 Moores Spring Road. Walk your bike across the crosswalk; use caution when crossing Moores Spring Road. The trail surface is gravel, dirt, and rock. The trail crosses the metal grate pedestrian bridge and winds past the historic Moore's Spring House, where mineral water was bottled and shipped worldwide in the early 1900s. The trail turns uphill to the right past the springhouse. Halfway up the hill, the trail turns left. Ride under stately beech trees in a large loop high above the Dan River.
