Biking Trail

Sandhills Access: Wire Grass Loop Trail

2505 Long Valley Road, Spring Lake

This trail starts at the intersection where the equestrian access trail and the Longleaf Pine Trail meet, goes past the parking lot and loops back around to the Longlead Pine Trail. Visitors can observe the scenic longleaf pine with wiregrass understory, which is a glimple of what the Sandhills of North Carolina is supposed to look like with prescribed fire.

Sand Path

240 Park Entrance Road, Seven Springs

The park's Sand Path is a generations old farm path that leads to the park's four (4) semi-primitive group sites. The Sand Path features a 1.8 mile round trip for joggers or hikers and forms a large section of the loop formed by hiking the Longleaf and Spanish Moss trails together. This path travels into a mixed pine and hardwood forest and borders an intensively managed section of the park being worked on by division staff to restore longleaf pine habitat. This trail may be traveled by vehicles at low speeds by campers so hikers must be aware of the dual use.

Lake Trail

240 Park Entrance Road, Seven Springs

The park's two-mile-long Lake Trail is the most recent trail built on the park and was opened to the public in June of 2015. This trail features a three-foot width and a natural, sand base that makes it ideal for hikers or joggers. The exact two-mile length also provides joggers with a precise distance that can be used to judge work-out speeds. This trail winds through a previously-unused forested section of the park and provides a good look at many mature white oaks in addition to a variety of other hardwoods.
