Mountain Laurel Loop Trail – Advanced – CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION

The advance loop of the park's mountain bike trail system starts off of the beginner loop. This loop poses the highest amount of opt-in challenges and technical features for riders to experience. It is also the narrowest of the three loops. Once a rider completes the advanced loop, they will need to continue down the beginner loop to return to the parking area.

Bikers, please pay attention to which direction to go. Please be mindful and considerate when encountering other trail users.

3009 Raven Rock Road, Lillington

Mountain Laurel Loop Trail – Beginner – CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION

3009 Raven Rock Road, Lillington

This is the beginner loop of Raven Rock's mountain bike trail system, which is named for the abundant thickets of mountain laurel present along the trail. As you ride through the woods, you will cross numerous bridges; pass between stands of pines and mixed hardwoods; and traverse a restored forest. More experienced riders have the option of lengthening their rides by taking the intermediate or advanced loops, both of which veer off the beginner loop.
